Master Of Arts In Garden Design Year I - Postgraduate Diploma Inchbald School of Design



Course info


Aims of the programme:

The MA programme is validated by Wrexham Glyndŵr University, in partnership and delivered by Inchbald School of Design.

Students can follow two routes: the whole MA programme or Part 1 (120 credits taught modules) followed by Part 2 (60 credit dissertation).

The MA combines a highly intensive teaching programme in Part 1 together with a tutorial based supervised study in Part 2.

The Postgraduate Diploma Course (Part 1 of the Masters programme) is an intensive professional programme enabling students to investigate more fully the impetus and consequences of their design solutions. Alongside the practical content is a more investigative emphasis that prepares students for the demands of this competitive profession or for further research. Students will approach project work through the introduction of the Survey/Analysis/Design method and will develop an approach to design through, learning to explore conceptual method and practice. Projects increase in complexity facilitating the understanding and development of the core skills of design, analysis, presentation, construction, professional practice and research methodology. Contemporary visualisation skills, hand and computer drawn, are introduced and developed throughout the programme enabling the student to prepare a portfolio that communicates a clear and practical approach to professional requirements and client need.

Students have the opportunity to investigate design theory and its impact on their work that of their peers and the wider established design community. Further explanation through lectures, seminars, workshops and site specific projects cover aesthetic and practical issues forming the basis for self-directed study and student led discussion in preparation for possible entry to Part 2, the MA programme.

Postgraduate study at Inchbald is introduced and explored through the Research Methodology module. This module investigates and elucidates issues of place, space, materials and atmosphere, as well as considering the creation of any built or designed environment through seminars and investigations instigated by staff and student contributions.

The course is taught using lecture, studio, group work, workshops and regular visits to major gardens. Students should be aware that this is a very intensive course and tutors encourage the development of independent learning in order that they are able to devote a significant amount of their own time to further study and completion of projects and assignments.

Students are allocated their own drawing space for the year giving them a dedicated workspace to use outside of the two days and full use of the School’s facilities including library and Eccleston Square gardens.
