The Landscape Institute recognises conversion course
The two year Master's of Landscape Architecture course run by the Landscape Interface Studio at Kingston University now has accreditation from the Landscape Institute.
The two-year course targets creative graduates and professionals from architecture, art and design, ecology, environmental science, geography, spatial planning and landscape architecture who can bring relevant knowledge, expertise, enquiry and creativity to the expanding field of landscape architecture/landscape urbanism practice and practice-led research. In particular, the programme is designed to engage with the interdisciplinary nature of contemporary landscape practice and research, and new opportunities for collaboration, co-production and creation. Graduate students from landscape programmes are also welcome on the programme.
Chris Sheridan, head of education and membership at the LI, said, 'Enrolment on post-graduate landscape architecture courses continues to grow. The 2014 intake was up by 12%, compared with 2013. We’re therefore delighted to confirm accreditation of Kingston’s new landscape architecture MLA, and wish the course every success.'
