The Landscape Architecture (Hons) programme at University College Dublin teaches you how to design with nature to improve our environment and the quality of our lives.
Landscape architects work on all sorts of projects, all over the world, designing habitats for humans and non-humans: homes for city birds, playgrounds for children, rooftop gardens, streetscapes, city parks and even cities themselves. They transform urban and rural land, and water-bodies, and advise on countryside matters.
Graduates of UCD Landscape Architecture work all over the world because of their transferable skills. Our students become professional landscape architects, setting up in business, working in private practice, for governmental bodies or NGO’s. Others go onto further academic study in landscape architecture, or related subjects and some go onto work in areas such as:
- Environmental and Ecological Policy- Making
- Conservation and Resource Management
- Planning or Urban Design
The majority of our students become professional landscape architects. After two years of approved work experience, graduates sit the Irish Landscape Institute professional exams, which lead to full professional membership of the ILI.
International Study Opportunities
We encourage students to gain international experience and many of our students study abroad in Europe and worldwide as part of this programme.
