Our innovative, practice-led research engages with developing agendas in the public realm, urban open space, green space networks and sustainable, healthy environments. The Landscape Architecture programme is offered by The University of Edinburgh.
All of our research students benefit from ECA’s interdisciplinary approach and all are assigned two research supervisors. Your second supervisor may be from another discipline within ECA, or from somewhere else within the College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences or elsewhere within the University, according to the expertise required. On occasion more than two supervisors will be assigned, particularly where the degree brings together multiple disciplines.
Our research culture is supported by seminar and public lecture programmes and discussion groups. You will be required to undertake research training during your degree. This will take the form of one or more semester-long courses consisting of workshops on research methodologies, designed for students working in landscape architecture, architecture and allied disciplines.
In addition, there are opportunities to access a wide range of research methods courses across the College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences.
You may also take any of the short postgraduate skills training courses offered by the Institute for Academic Development, or any other research methods training suggested by your supervisor.
Always verify the dates on the programme website.
