Landscape Architecture MLA

University College of London
The Bartlett School of Architecture
London, England
United Kingdom
Landscape & Environment

These two new, creative and reflective Master’s degrees consider interventions in the landscape through imaginative design, strategic thinking and technical knowledge.




With design-led teaching and learning, these two Master’s programmes allow students to progress towards a career as a landscape architect. Students work to put their theories into practice from week one, researching through speculative design.


In both programmes, Design Studios form a core component, giving students the opportunity to work independently or in groups to develop their own approach to landscape architecture. Within the Design Studios, tutors present unique, rigorous, challenging and even radical intellectual positions, providing a strong identity for students to use as the basis for developing their own approach the contemporary study of landscape architecture.


Students refine their communication skills during seminar presentations, written work, crits and exhibitions and a series of workshops and classes are available to students to help them gain integral skills, from planting and horticulture to VR and mixed reality modelling.


Landscape architecture design teaching, for both MLA and MA students, is complemented with history and theory lectures, seminars and readings, examining the interdependence of thought, action and form in history, society, culture and geography.


Landscape architecture is available to study in two degrees at The Bartlett, taught over either one or two years


– Our Landscape Architecture MLA is taught full-time over two years, acting as a conversion programme for students with a without a landscape architecture undergraduate degree;


– Whereas, our Landscape Architecture MA is taught full-time over one year, for students who already have a UK landscape architecture undergraduate degree, or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard.



– Work with a team of landscape architects, researchers and built environment professionals to inform your creative design practice


– Develop a detailed knowledge and understanding of the potential of the landscape architecture profession


– Learn in The Bartlett’s unique studio culture, enjoying interdisciplinary opportunities across the faculty and UCL


Landscape Architecture MLA


This is a two-year Master’s degree which empowers students without a landscape architecture undergraduate degree or background to pursue a career as a landscape architect.


The first year is a preparatory year, as students entering the programme will typically be new to the discipline of landscape architecture. The second year has a strong design research focus, with a major design studio project and research project complementing each other and giving students the platform to develop highly developed portfolios upon graduation.
