University of Sheffield Landscape Architecture

The aim of this course is to train landscape architects who also understand planning and how design proposals affect the environment. You’ll study urban theory, planning and practice, and the complex relationship between people and the environment.

This combination of design skills and broader knowledge is good preparation for a career working alongside other environmental design professionals.

The course is designed to meet the needs of the modern profession. You’ll work on real landscape projects that are developed through experimentation and discussion in the design studio. You’ll develop skills in teamworking, presentation, project management and IT. This course also includes local, national and European field trips.
