Course description

This course is a unique opportunity to qualify as both an architect and a landscape architect. It is open to students with previous combined or separate degrees in both architecture and landscape architecture.

Your study focuses on a range of themed, design-based studios dedicated to specific areas of practice or research. There are compulsory modules in landscape architecture, humanities, management, building and plant sciences, and an integrated architecture and landscape architecture project. You’ll also have the opportunity to work with local or regional groups on a real-life challenge through our Live Projects initiative.

To qualify you’ll produce at least one comprehensive design project.

We are one of the UK's top architecture schools. Our teaching staff are doing world-class research, helping to make the school a leader in our field across the UK and internationally. Through our teaching and research, we explore the social, spatial and environmental implications of architecture. As a Sheffield student you will engage with real issues affecting the built environment.
