**Why Landscape Architecture?**
Our Landscape Architecture degree is one of the longest running in the country and will help you develop your skills in experimentation, creative thinking and social interaction, as you gain an understanding of theory, design work and an introduction to professional practice. Youâll focus on creating landscapes for sustainable living in the future, balancing scientific understanding with aesthetic and functional design. With opportunities to gain work experience on placements with organisations such as Terrapin Bright Green in New York, MIT in Massachusetts, the Canal and River Trust in Gloucester and MHP Design in Cheltenham, our graduates stand out from the competition. Previous students have also worked on live briefs at a range of sites such as Pittville Park and St James' Square in Cheltenham, Prinknash Abbey and Kings Square in Gloucester, plus Wapping Wharf, the Diesel Depot and Temple Meads in Bristol.
Youâll draw on the expertise of experienced lecturers and be inspired on field trips exploring historic, contemporary and cultural landscapes in locations such as Copenhagen, New York and Barcelona (additional costs may apply, see course web page for details). Youâll be able to take advantage of our open-plan landscape architecture studios and showcase work to leading landscape design practices at our annual Degree Show. The course also benefits from accreditation with the Landscape Institute and is recognised by IFLA (International Federation of Landscape Architects) Europe.

The uni has fantastic facilities with lovely staff. However communication is consistently poor across the board. Timetabling can be poor too. Lectures are not always engaging or well structured either but this does seem to be improving.
