This programme offers you a unique disciplinary experience and an opportunity to plot your own, advanced route through landscape architectural education to fit your aspirations, interests and skills.
You will be immersed in very different European cultural and pedagogical environments, greatly enriching your perspective and development as a designer. The five partners approach the technical, aesthetic and ecological issues of landscape architecture in very different ways, at scales ranging from the urban site to the rural region. You will therefore experience a wide range of landscapes, methods and skills, establish links to private- and public-sector employers across Europe, and be exposed to the daily life and culture of some of Europe’s most diverse and exciting cities and regions.
The programme has been reviewed by the International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA) and currently has ‘Candidate Accreditation’ status with the Landscape Institute.
Applicants should have an undergraduate honours degree in landscape architecture. Applicants with an undergraduate honours degree in architecture and a portfolio that demonstrates a strong interest in landscape architectural issues will also be considered.
As part of your application you must indicate the institutions you would prefer to attend during the two semesters away from Edinburgh. Whilst we will take your preferences into consideration, we cannot guarantee that places will be available in your preferred institutions.
You must familiarise yourself with the language requirements of the partner institutions before you apply. It is your responsibility to ensure you meet the language requirements of your preferred institution/s before you begin your studies.
