Portfolio instructions for applying to the Landscape Architecture for Sustainable Urbanisation – Master’s Programme
A portfolio is a collection of samples from projects, assignments or other work that have been carried out during previous education or previous professional activity. The submitted portfolio should include examples from three (3) projects or assignments that illustrate, in both text and images, the student’s ability to plan or design a landscape or an environment. The balance between amount of text and images depend on the treated subject. The text must be correctly referenced and reflect the student’s choice as well as his/her relation to the illustrated landscape.
A jury assigned by SLU will evaluate the portfolio according to following aspects:
- Relevance of the treated subject – has the student worked with questions relevant for landscape architecture?
- Level of knowledge – has the student handled the subject in a relevant theoretical context?
- The skill of the work – has the student presented an ability to handle the project or assignment in words as well as visually?
The University’s evaluation of the submitted portfolio will, apart from the formal application, be the decision basis on whether the student can be accepted to the programme or not. The students will not receive comments on submitted portfolios.
