Landscape architects design enhance our environment and surrounding spaces with fresh and new perspectives. It is a design discipline that is concerned with the quality of our spaces and the environmental surroundings. The Diploma in Landscape Architecture (DLA) course trains you to become a landscape designer who will be able to assist in transforming our world into a conducive, interactive, educational and experiential place. It involves the study of existing social, ecological, and geological conditions and processes in the environment, and the responses needed to achieve the desired landscape (indoor/outdoor) space design.

The Diploma in Landscape Architecture aims to train designers who are competent in theory and practice in landscape design. A good foundation in horticulture and environmental awareness for ecology will balance the emphasis on the integrated design approach of landscaping and architecture. Through this practice oriented training during internship, students will also learn to be independent workers as well as team players in landscape architectural practice.

Course Highlights

  1. Dynamic, project-based learning that develops investigative, analytical and open-minded thinking skills for application to landscape design.
  2. Personalised consultations with tutors in design studios.
  3. Three-month internship programme with private companies and key players like the National Parks Board.
  4. Collaborative learning approach which allows you to learn about other disciplines such as water technology and architecture.
