LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE: designing lifestyles

Students interested in this programme must already have 120 ECTS to be eligible for the entrance exam. After successfully completing the course, they can work in urban design jobs or enrol in a PhD programme. The current 4-year programme is worth 240 ECTS.


NB: the syllabus is currently being redesigned to become a 5-year degree programme which school leavers can join directly in the first year.

 

1st year

BASIC TOOLS, METHODS AND CONCEPTS:

experimentation, manipulation, project processes

 


2nd year

PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT ISSUES:

The city and urban projects, rural areas and the challenges of urban extension, changing rural environments

 


3rd year

CROSS-SECTOR DISCIPLINES AND STAKEHOLDERS: 

For the Public Landscape Architecture Workshop, students take on real local authority projects, working in close collaboration with the local government body

 


4th year

LONG WORK PLACEMENTS & FINAL YEAR PROJECT:

students choose from one of three seminars: Sustainable Landscape Design and Technical Concepts, Changing Environments, or Heritage and Modernity. The project coursework also includes lectures on art and public contracts, philosophy and ethics, contractors and project management, and engineering technology.


Several learning methods are adopted which overlap at times with the Architecture curriculum:


• project workshops (50% of time under supervision)

• research work and intensive weeks: exploratory assignments on ecology, the tree, the material construction of spaces and environments, communication and audiovisual tools, lighting, critical analysis of public spaces...)

• cross-discipline courses: living science, engineering, social science and humanities, culture and history of the town and planning, fine arts.

•research seminars

• work placements: worker, landscape gardening (1st year), general contractor (2nd year), and project management (4th year).

• study trips

French grade point system

ENSAPL uses the customary French grade point system. Study results are graded on a scale from 0 to 20, meaning:

20 to 18 : excellent A+
17- 16 : very good A
15-14 : good B
 12-13 :  satisfactory C
11: sufficient D
10: is the passing grade E
9 : insufficient F
8 to 0 : Fail FX
ABS : not examined
 

A grade of 16 or 17 is awarded very sparingly; a grade of 19 or 20 is exceptional.

The average grading for examination would be 10/20.

Most of the marks are between 10/20 to 12 /20.
14 /20 is an excellent mark for the studio project.
