LI Student Membership

Student members are just starting out on their journey into the landscape profession – and it’s just as important that they have access to what’s going on in the industry and can expand their learning in areas they feel they might need extra support in.

It’s because of this that our student members receive FREE access to LI Campus (excludes Premium content), where they can see the latest talks and professional development events from the industry. They also receive special pricing on LI training and events, as well as digital access to the LI journal and the LI archive, currently situated at the Museum of English Rural Life (MERL) in Reading.  

Campus was created by the Landscape Institute (LI), the UK professional body for landscape professionals, with the help and support of our sponsors. Together, we wanted to offer high-quality educational content to landscape professionals around the world. 

The Campus video library includes sessions from all of the LI’s CPD days, conferences and other events since 2016 and we have big plans to add much, much more – from us and from other leaders in the sector.  

Student members get FREE access to Campus (excludes Premium content) so you can stay ahead with your learning. Keep an eye out for our regular events too to keep you on top of current challenges facing the industry and the solutions we’re working on to tackle them.


As members you’re part of a vast network of landscape professionals in a breadth of roles across the sector. You can search our member directory, containing over 5,500 listings of individuals across the industry.

You can also access our extensive case studies directory for inspiration and ideas that you can incorporate into your own work, or help you find like-minded collaborators.

Our branches are at the heart of the work we do. We have 12 LI branches across the UK, plus one for international members. As a member, you can join your local branch, attend branch events, and get updates on activities in other branches. You can also vote for your local branch committee and nominate yourself as a student representative. Find out what’s going on in your area.

We offer discounted rates on insurance services, free legal advice and a pension scheme.  Visit the dedicated LI Insurancewebpage for more details. 

All LI members get exclusive access to bespoke Firestarter courses on ‘Better Business Development’, ‘Practical Business Planning’ and ‘Building a Winning Team’ . 

The quarterly Landscape Journal provides in-depth insight into the issues at the forefront of landscape practice, and the innovative solutions the industry is taking to tackle them.

Each member receives a digital copy of the LI Journal and has access to a range of policies and documentation. We also offer discounts on JCLI contracts. Our resource base allows you to find out more on our technical guidance, policy statements and general publications.  

Each year we run the Student Travel Awards. This award aims to support the next generation of landscape professionals and give them a head start in developing their knowledge and practice. The award is open to students on an LI-accredited course, and the winner gets to travel somewhere in the world to learn about a specific landscape topic or project. Keep an eye on for more information on the latest award.

Showcase your talents while still studying and enter the Student awards categories at the annual LI Awards.
