Sheffield’s Department of Landscape is consistently ranked among the UK’s very best. Staff in the department are award-winning designers in their own right. Many of them are involved in high-profile projects to transform urban areas in Sheffield, London and elsewhere. As a student, you will take part in projects too, developing ideas in a studio environment. There’s a strong emphasis on practical skills such as teamwork and project management. The course also includes national and international field trips. But what makes Sheffield a truly distinctive choice for this subject is our passion for the environment and our focus on unlocking your creativity. The BSc includes specialist training in ecology which helps you understand the impact of design proposals on habitats. This more scientific background is also very useful if you want to work on projects to restore degraded environments. The industry expects us to produce talented, motivated graduates with terrific potential. That’s why key industry figures come to our degree show every year and advertise vacancies with us. Our graduates work in the UK and abroad, in consultancies, community development agencies, local authorities and national government. The BA is accredited by the Landscape Institute.
