The taught part of the course – from autumn of year one to summer of year two – leads to the professionally accredited Postgraduate Diploma in Landscape Architecture.

There are lectures, seminars, workshops, tutorials, critical feedback sessions, site visits and practicals. We also bring in landscape architects for tutorials and studio reviews.

The Special Project develops your competence. Supported by an academic, you’ll work on a landscape architecture solution for a real-world site. This could be in Sheffield or in your home town. Even if your home town is in another country.

Over the summer of your second year, you’ll work on a dissertation, leading to the award of MA. The end-of-year exhibition gives you the chance to present your work to prospective employers.
