The Landscape Institute accredit the courses in Landscape Architecture at the University of Gloucestershire each academic year as part of a four year (intercalated) Landscape Architecture programme; including the Honours Degree, with the Degree as an intermediate award and the Diploma as the intended exit award.
Landscape architects plan and design our natural and built environment, from national parks to city streets and squares, World Heritage sites to urban public plazas.
From environmentally sustainable business parks, housing schemes, hospital and education campuses, highways and flood alleviation corridors, their work is everywhere.
As the oldest accredited course in the UK, our programmes equip graduates with the knowledge and skills necessary to meet the challenges of the 21st century, when issues of sustainability and rapid environmental change are forcing developers to rethink their approaches at all scales.
You might work in the private sector, with multi-disciplinary teams in the UK or abroad, or in the public sector, using your knowledge and design skills to inform policy and planning decisions at a local, regional, national or international level.
Wherever you work you will have the confidence that you have graduated from a course with a longstanding reputation as one of the best in delivering high quality landscape architecture training.

Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
