BA (Hons) Landscape Architecture

General

Program Description

This is a design and technically based landscape architecture programme. The majority of study takes place at our Avery Hill Campus with some courses delivered at Hadlow College.

Year 1 offers a basic design foundation covering visual studies, landscape design, horticulture, technical drawing and construction. During the following years, you will undertake increasingly specialised and ambitious landscape design projects.

Year 2 includes more scientific exploration based on ecology and sustainability and their relevance to design, ecological studies and planting design. You will also be taught computer-aided design using AutoCAD and Key Terra-Firma software. Study in the first and second years includes one day per week at Hadlow College.

The final year brings all these threads together in a comprehensive major design project. There are also real-life projects overseas and field trips in all years.

The university is investing £76 million in a new building to house the campus library, TV studios and academic facilities for disciplines including architecture, design and construction. Stockwell Street is a short walk from the Greenwich Campus, and this programme will be delivered there from 2014.

The aims of the programme are to:

  • Produce creative and imaginative landscape designers with broad knowledge and range of confident, effective professional skills
  • Produce landscape architects that can work both collaboratively or independently with initiative and thoughtfulness
  • Prepare students for future progression to the profession of landscape architecture and year out practice
  • Provide a foundation for students wishing to pursue careers at an advanced level study in related fields.
