Accreditation of landscape courses

We work with universities across the UK to provide the professional accreditation of more than 30 undergraduate and postgraduate higher education programmes so students can be sure their degree is of the highest standard and prepares them for a career in landscape.

LI accreditation requires education providers to meet important criteria which ensure high standards are maintained. All accredited courses must demonstrate that students are provided with a foundation of knowledge for future work in the profession and a range of transferrable skills.

We aim to accredit courses that reflect all aspects of the profession – landscape and urban design, historic landscapes, environmental conservation, landscape management, planning, ecology and more.

We welcome inquiries from UK universities and international educational institutions interested in seeking professional accreditation for their courses.

Students on LI accredited courses can be sure they are gaining the knowledge and skills which will set them up for a successful career. Plus, they’ll benefit from LI Student membership free of charge for the duration of their studies and be automatically eligible for Associate membership – the first step towards Chartership – upon graduation.
