Course overview

MArch Architecture and Landscape Architecture is an innovative course which provides an integrated learning opportunity and offers a fully accredited route to qualification as both an architect and landscape architect.

“Involvement with both courses simultaneously, further develops a holistic approach to design while gaining knowledge and skills adaptable for all projects.

The dual course broadens my career opportunities and strengthens my desire to work in a multidisciplinary practice with ambition to design architecture and landscape hand in hand.”

The course balances creative design through studio led teaching with reflective and technical written explorations. Teaching is delivered in both departments and offers a unique environment in which our students are able to determine their own critical path.

The course is heavily embedded into the MArch Architecture course and students follow the Live Projects programme and design studios as well as technology, management, practice and law modules. Specialist teaching is offered by the Department of Landscape for key modules and offers a chance to engage with urban design as well as landscape management, planting design and practice law.

Final year students undertake a specialist studio delivered by both architecture and landscape architecture tutors. This enables them to make sophisticated architectural and landscape architectural propositions that explore core urban design issues which respond to ecological, cultural, social and technical contexts.


The course is recognised by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) as giving exemption from RIBA Part 2 and the Landscape Institute (LI) at Part 3.

It is also prescribed by the Architects Registration Board (ARB), subject to periodic review by ARB, for the purposes of entry onto the United Kingdom Register of Architects.

Structure and modules

Our design teaching is studio based with several research-led options. Programmes run by specialist staff link together lectures, studio work and research. Each module is assessed individually by coursework.

For module descriptions please view the MArch Student Handbook.

The content of our courses is reviewed annually to make sure it's up-to-date and relevant. Individual modules are occasionally updated or withdrawn. This is in response to discoveries through our world-leading research; funding changes; professional accreditation requirements; student or employer feedback; outcomes of reviews; and variations in staff or student numbers.In the event of any change we'll consult and inform students in good time and take reasonable steps to minimise disruption.
