Being a landscape architect isn’t just about creating beautiful outdoor spaces. It’s about sensitively designing, planning and managing projects so they fully meet the needs of both people and the environment.

You’ll be encouraged by our passionate experts, who’ll ensure that you’re well prepared for a profession which excitingly bridges the gap between working art and science.

Hopefully you’ll leave your own landscape legacy for the next generation to enjoy!
