The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: English.
Often you can get a suitable transcript from your school. If this is not the case, you will need official translations along with verified copies of the original.
IELTS: 6.5 with a minimum of 5.5 in each component
At least 2 reference(s) must be provided.
These should be supplied and signed by academic staff at institutions where you have studied previously. They must be presented on the official letter-headed paper of the relevant institution. If you have been out of education for the last two years, you can send one academic reference plus one from your current employer if you wish.
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.
