Don't just take our word for it – here's what students say about what it's like to study at Kingston University.
Name: Mark Job, BA PG Dip LA, CMLI, associate landscape architect, Arup Environmental Consulting
"My enthusiasm for the profession of Landscape Architecture is entirely based upon my experience at Kingston University where I feel students are encouraged to explore diversity within the wider subject, pursuing their individual interests. This led to two key developments which have maintained my interest in Landscape Architecture.
Firstly, being encouraged to find areas of the subject which were of particular interest. I have now developed specialisms in river restoration and habitat creation, which have been realised through projects at Arup, for the Environment Agency.
Secondly, through gaining knowledge of the diversity of the subject, I firmly believe that Landscape Architects perform an essential role in coordinating technical information from a multitude of disciplines into a coherent whole."
Name: James Virgo, BA PG Dip LA CMLI, senior landscape architect, LUC (Land Use Consultants Limited)
"I enjoyed the variety of projects and the opportunities and experiences that were presented to us by working on 'real' sites with 'real' issues, and communicating with 'real' people who had an interest in the future of the site.
Opportunities to get outside and visit Paris, Amsterdam and numerous sites around the UK were invaluable learning experiences as well as memorable fun times. I champion the Kingston course and in particular the tutors whose encouragement and enthusiasm all helped shape me as the landscape architect I am today."
