Entry Requirements:
Entry requirements Good undergraduate honours degree or equivalent qualification, ideally in a subject related to landscape or design (e.g. Ecology, Geography, Geology, Architecture, Engineering, or Fine Art). In exceptional circumstances we will also accept candidates without a first degree who have relevant skills and education through previous employment and/or study that demonstrates their ability to complete a higher degree, subject to the written approval of the Faculty of Architecture.

Our standard English language requirements for overseas students are: IELTS 6.5, TOEFL 575 (paper based) with TWE 4.5, or TOEFL 232 (computer based).
