Training at noted universities
The International Master's Programme in Landscape Architecture (known as the IMLA programme for short) involves study at two higher education institutions:
The exacting but effective programme is divided into five practice-oriented subject areas
and provides high-quality training geared to labour market demands - thus honing skills for which there will likely be an increased demand in the future.
The IMLA programme has a strong practical focus. Much of its teaching - especially in the area of management, marketing and digital planning methods - is provided by external specialists and experts are invited to act as guest critics on the projects. The faculty members are highly qualified in their areas of specialisation and also in didactic terms. IMLA incorporates a wide variety of European countries and cross-border issues. Projects take place all over Europe.Focus on peri-urban landscapes
IMLA courses have current thematic emphases. The focus concentrates on landscape architecture in peri-urban areas. Areas of study will be the urban regions of different cities in European countries such as Romania, Belgium, Italy, Hungary, Turkey. In the context of these case-studies students will identify how market forces and state regulations are interacting in differing scenarios and are thus determining the possibilities of landscape architecture. This unconventional approach will ask for both - planning and design skills.Enhanced vocational prospects thanks to IMLA accreditation
The International Master of Landscape Architecture programme is accredited according to the standards of the German Accreditation Agency for Study Programmes in Architecture and Planning (ASAP), meaning that it complies with the requirements of the European-wide EFLA Education Policy Document and the guidelines of the worldwide UNESCO / UIA Charter of Architectural Education. ASAP accreditation is a sign of the high standard of the IMLA programme and enhances the vocational prospects of IMLA graduates quite significantly.
With accreditation in accordance with the standards of the German Accreditation Agency for Study Programmes in Architecture and Planning (ASAP), the IMLA degree programme complies with the European-wide guidelines of the EFLA Education Policy Document and the worldwide guidelines of the UNESCO/UIA Charter of Architectural Education.
The IMLA is aimed at graduates in landscape architecture or related disciplines such as spatial and environmental planning, urban and metropolitan planning, architecture, or equivalent education and training with planning and spatial relevance.
