Postgraduate Landscape Architecture
MA + PG Dip Landscape Architecture
When our teaching year in landscape architecture began we had no idea that we would end up successfully teaching our students remotely or that we would be talking in so may new ways about the relevance of public space, cities and green spaces. The sense of environmental and social responsibility seen in our students this year is testament to how much our new post graduate landscape architects intend to contribute.
Accredited by the Landscape Institute, Masters and Post Graduate Diploma courses offer a sound grounding in the skills to address some of our 21st century challenges. In addition we believe in encouraging students to develop their own values and philosophy through research and discussion. Our programme of study is flexible and welcomes graduates from a wide range of backgrounds and stages in life, to join the landscape profession. This is a significant time to become a Landscape Architect and be part of global environmental solutions.
Before lockdown among the many highlights of our year was working with Amsterdam city Landscape Architect, Ruwan Aluvihare and studying how planning policies to reduce private motorised transport are allowing for safer cycling and walking with new city developments putting green transport and green environments at the forefront of planning and urban design policies. Looking at how some of this thinking could be applied in Leeds and the UK, it would have been hard to foresee how pertinent this innovative re-imagining our cities would become. We intend to continue to develop this cross fertilisation of ideas with Amsterdam and as conditions hopefully ease, visit again with the next generation of landscape architects.
