Course Description

Landscape Architects design and manage spaces of all shapes and sizes, from busy urban centres to housing developments, urban parks, golf courses, and private gardens. They are involved with planning and ensuring designs are sustainable, that the environment is enhanced rather than damaged by development. This course combines creative modules with a sound scientific background. Design projects will be undertaken that cover all aspects of design, beginning with smaller-scale projects and culminating in the final year with complex schemes to prepare you for life in a Landscape Architecture practice or as a landscape consultant. Here at Myerscough, we are situated within beautiful grounds with access to a golf course, arboretum and rural landscapes. As students, you will also have access to UCLan in the bustling city centre of Preston.
