Apprenticeships in Scotland
Apply for apprenticeships in Scotland
Landscape architects create places for people to live, work and play and places for plants and animals to thrive.
You can complete an undergraduate degree (usually four years) accredited by the Landscape Institute. Accredited subjects include:
You need at least two or three A-levels or equivalent such as Scottish Highers, or the Welsh Advanced Baccalaureate to win a place on a degree course. Subjects such as Geography, Graphic Design, Art, Environmental Science, Biology and Botany are particularly useful.
If you already have a degree in a related subject (such as architecture, horticulture or botany) you can take a graduate conversion course.
First you complete an undergraduate or postgraduate entry course accredited by the Landscape Institute. You can gain chartership with the help of the Pathway to Chartership (P2C). The P2C develops the knowledge, understanding and professionalism required to become a chartered landscape architect and takes into account your previous learning and experience. You can progress at your own pace, usually two to three years for most people. The Pathway is followed while you’re in professional practice until you’re ready to take the final oral exam.
Once fully qualified, chartered landscape architects must complete at least 20 hours continuing professional development (CPD) a year to keep up to date with current thinking and professional practice.
Salaries depend on location, employer and level of responsibility, and salaries and career options can improve with chartered status.
* Salaries have been collected from multiple industry sources and have been updated as of 2019
