European Masters in Landscape Architecture (EMiLA)



2 years
Study abroad



The European Masters in Landscape Architecture, otherwise known as EMiLA was launched in 2013.  The programme brings together five internationally renowned schools of Landscape Architecture who centre their pedagogy on the development of world leading design thinking.

EMiLA students spend their first and fourth semesters at their home school, and the second and third semesters studying Landscape Architecture at two of the EMiLA partner institutions in Europe. As an EMiLA student, you will be immersed in three very different environments, enriching your perspectives on Landscape Architecture and your development as a practitioner. You will gain from studying Landscape Architecture from technical, artistic and ecological perspectives, as well as through a wide range of scales in both urban and rural environments.

EMiLA graduates are sought after across a wide spectrum of practice contexts in Europe and have gone on to take up positions in some of Europe’s leading design practices.
