Landscape Architecture, Dip
The programme is professionally based and encourages independence of mind and personal specialisation. As an accredited programme it forms, with the BA (Hons) Landscape Architecture or the BA (Hons) Garden Design, part of an 'intercalated' set of awards leading to membership of the chartered professional body, the Landscape Institute. It is for students who have completed one or more years in landscape practice and who intend to become members of the Landscape Institute.
The programme is well known both nationally and internationally and is one of the longer established British programmes. The programme is structured on a studio/tutorial basis with lecture/seminar courses. Teaching is shared with the MA Landscape Architecture and in the Urban Development Project within the MA Urban Design.
