The Landscape Architecture programme at The University of Edinburgh is served by high-quality library facilities.


Students in the Landscape Architecture programme at The University of Edinburgh are provided with access to study space, as well as access to well-equipped multimedia laboratories, photography and exhibition facilities. There are also several bookable spaces for the development of exhibitions, workshops or seminars.

Training and support

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.

Programme Structure

Inclusive access to outdoor environments led by the OPENspace research centre

  • Exploration of how public open space, urban parks and squares, forests, green and blue spaces and rural areas can contribute to quality of life. Our work includes a focus on the benefits to be gained from getting outdoors and the barriers currently experienced by different users, particularly those from disadvantaged groups.

  • Landscape design and planning to support young children, teenagers, older people, and other age groups and sectors within the population.

  • Research on salutogenic environments (the health-enhancing qualities of engagement with certain types of landscape) and on discerning the mechanisms behind any links between wellbeing and the natural environment.

  • Environmental perception, including empirical research on the transactional nature of people’s engagement with place.
