Our two new Master's degrees in Landscape Architecture have achieved the first step towards full accreditation from the Landscape Institute.

Both Landscape Architecture MA and MLA have secured Landscape Institute Candidate Accreditation status. Launching in autumn 2018, the two programmes will progress to applying for full Landscape Institute Accreditation status upon graduation of the first cohort.

The programmes allow both students with an undergraduate degree in a related discipline and students with a Landscape Institute-accredited degree to develop imaginative design, strategic thinking and technical knowledge within the school’s unique studio culture. Applications to be part of the first cohort close on Friday 27 July. 

Poppy Smith, Head of External Affairs at the Landscape Institute, said she was delighted to support the launch of our new programmes and was pleased to see more institutions in the UK investing in this crucial profession. Explaining the programmes’ importance, Poppy said:

Landscape is where people, place and nature connect, and courses such as those at The Bartlett equip the next generation with the skills they need to transform the built and natural environment for the benefit of all three.

Professor Laura Allen, Programme Director and Professor of Architecture and Augmented Landscapes commented: 

Landscape architecture can change the way we experience and think about our everyday and emerging environments. We’re looking forward to working with the next generation of landscape architects to nurture a thoughtful and evocative approach to the design of landscapes for our cities and rural spaces.
