Architecture and Landscape Architecture
School of Architecture,

This course is a unique opportunity to qualify as both an architect and a landscape architect. It’s open to students with previous combined or separate degrees in both architecture and landscape architecture.
The degree is RIBA Part 2 and LI Part 3 accredited and is prescribed by the ARB.
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.
To qualify you’ll produce at least one comprehensive design project. You’ll also have the opportunity to work with local or regional groups on a real-life challenge through our Live Projects initiative.
Validated by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) at Part 2, the Landscape Institute (LI) at Part 3 and prescribed by the Architects Registration Board (ARB)

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 Individual modules are occasionally updated or withdrawn.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. We are no longer offering unrestricted module choice. If your course included unrestricted modules, your department will provide a list of modules from their own and other subject areas that you can choose from.
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.
