The course is designed for those who wish to become proficient in the basics of the specific skills of landscape architecture and garden design. The aim of the programme is to enable students to develop the practical and intellectual skills needed to design gardens and landscapes and to understand the complexities of the industry on behalf of clients and contractors to a competent standard. The Certificate of Higher Education in Landscape Studies allows, within the context of a one-year and 120-credit course, the varied aspects and skills of landscape architecture and garden design to be explored and developed. These include a basic knowledge of horticultural practices, botanical knowledge, landscape technology, creative thinking, spatial awareness and drawing office practice. A knowledge and understanding of the value of cultural and designed landscapes is explored through a dedicated module on landscape history. The CertHE is not only a short version of landscape architecture education but also a lower tariff entry opportunity, which can be topped up for higher degrees, to DipHE or even to BSc courses.
