It’s all centred around learning through design studios
The course’s celebrated design studios are situated within an urban campus, which means you will be immersed a laboratory of design exploration and at the centre of innovation.
Studios are located within the multi award-winning RMIT Design Hub. Studios are one of the major reasons that RMIT Landscape Architecture and its graduates are so highly regarded by industry.
What is a design studio?
Design studios model the best practice of global design firms.
Design studios typically make up half the course each semester, and are taught in small groups. You will focus on a particular design theme and project. You’ll select from a range of studio offerings, and learn specific techniques to develop ideas and outcomes.
In your final year, you will complete a thesis, referred to Design Research Project A+B. This will develop on the research outcomes reached at the conclusion of your landscape architecture studies.
Learning at RMIT
The types of classes you have will depend on the course you’re studying. Classes are offered in various formats designed to provide meaningful engagement with staff, industry and peers and provide for access and use of spaces where learning can be applied and active, including an array of specialised equipment.
Most RMIT courses do not include passive large-scale classes such as lectures, instead the content traditionally provided in lectures is made available online. This may be in the form of readings, videos or other on-demand learning materials. This content will also support the basis of interactive learning that takes place in on-campus classes.
