The Certificate leads to the MA Landscape Architecture and together they form the 'conversion' route for graduates from other disciplines to complete the MA Landscape Architecture degree, which is accredited by the Landscape Institute.
Many students entering the Certificate programme will already have a good first degree in environmental or design disciplines, such as horticulture, environmental science, architecture, planning, design or the fine arts, but applicants from more distant disciplines such as philosophy, languages or law are also considered.
The Certificate in Landscape Design may also lead on to the MSc Landscape Planning and Assessment for those who need to acquire the requisite knowledge of plan drawing, plants and construction.
The programme is made up of design courses in visual studies, landscape and planting design and technical subjects such as amenity horticulture and construction.
