This programme is professionally accredited by the Landscape Institute and provides you with professionally focused landscape architectural skills and a critical awareness of the context of contemporary landscape architecture practice.
This is the only professionally orientated postgraduate programme in landscape architecture in Scotland, and it has an acknowledged international reputation.
Landscape architecture combines creative practice with intellectual rigour in the invention of landscapes for human occupation. Working across a range of scales, from the territory to the garden, it is a practice that draws on a deep understanding of material and cultural history, ecology, geography, climate, and the past and present uses of landscapes in order to speculate on the future.
The two-year programme of study is uniquely designed to cultivate landscape architects from a variety of undergraduate specialisms. The programme endeavours to train individual practitioners with distinct modes of practice and fields of interest with the aim that MLA graduates enter the profession with a sophisticated portfolio of skills, knowledge and understanding.
Normally a UK 2:1 honours degree, or its international equivalent, in landscape architecture or a related subject such as architecture, design, geography, planning, ecology or fine art. You should have a strong interest in landscape architecture and show creative potential.
You must submit a portfolio of recent work, personal statement and CV as part of your application.
