Landscape Architecture & Design BA (Hons)
Develop the advanced skills required to become a professional Landscape Architect with specialist knowledge of ecological and environmental design on our BA (Hons) Landscape Architecture degree course.
Based at UCA Canterbury’s School of Architecture and Design, you’ll be exposed to a wide range of spatial practices and come to understand the value that a Landscape Architect can add to projects, the wider community and society. You will have access to advanced forms of fabrication and testing, the latest scanning and VR technology, and a suite of traditional craft-based workshops, all of which will allow you to bring your design proposals to life. You will have the freedom to establish your own unique specialisms, such as practical plant-based knowledge, and you will develop your own highly individualised design identity and style.
Supported throughout the course by a wide range of industry professionals, you will have opportunities to collaborate with your peers in other design specialisms such as architecture and urban design. Through exploring real briefs and contexts, you’ll have the chance to engage with and show your work to established practitioners, and on graduation you will become part of the school’s expanded network of mentors and career advisors.
As part of the course, you’ll benefit from interaction with industry through live project opportunities, masterclasses, and optionally – professional work experience placement, if you choose the Professional Practice Year pathway – building industry-relevant skills to ensure that you graduate ready for the workplace.
This course is new for 2023 entry and subject to validation.
