In one of Europe’s largest campuses for education in Landscape Design, Landscape Planning and Landscape Management and Construction, this Landscape Architecture programme from Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences gives you a possibility to in depth studies in varied areas of Landscape Architecture.


You will get a deeper understanding of the relation between man and the environment and learn how to handle the processes of landscape change in the modern society. The campus of SLU Alnarp is located in the Öresund region close to Malmö and Copenhagen in one of the most vital regions of northern Europe with four universities nearby.

All the courses are delivered in English and the student population is a mixture of Swedish and international students. There is an international approach to assignments and literature at the programme, but you will get to know Scandinavia and the southern region of Sweden through projects and studies.

The courses offered in this programme represent a broad range of subjects within the field Landscape Architecture. The education is based on contemporary and international theories in Landscape Architecture, but also on research and knowledge developed at the campus in relation with practise and the profession. You can for example find courses in open space design, in urban and rural landscape planning or in horticultural and dynamic vegetation design. Besides these directions, you can also combine different types of courses to develop your own profile according to your own preferences and interests. The education uses a combination and synthesis of skill training and relevant theoretical input. You will use different computer programmes adapted for planning, design, analysis and presentation in the courses.  After one and half years of courses the studies end with a Master’s project (thesis) during one semester, where you independently plan and carry out a theoretical and practical project.


This Landscape Architecture programme from Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences will give you a strong platform and the accurate tools for a forthcoming professional career within the field. Depending on your own country’s policy on professional certification, as well as the subject of your bachelor’s degree, you may be able to work as an urban planner, landscape designer or landscape manager, or in another profession that is based on knowledge about contemporary society and landscape development, sometimes in competition with professions such as landscape architects or architects.
