Overview

The focus is on urban regeneration and development. You’ll work on green technologies such as sustainable urban drainage, green roofs and brownfield restoration.

Your specialist training in ecology will set you apart from other graduates. You will understand the impact of design proposals on habitats and you’ll be able to assist in the restoration of degraded environments.

Course content is focused on real landscape projects developed through experiment and discussion in the design studio. Throughout the course you’ll develop skills in project management, IT, innovation and graphic, written and verbal presentations.

Local and national field trips are an important part of the course. You will also visit other European countries.
