There are currently very few qualifying courses for Landscape Designers in Ireland. BFEI graduates may progress to degree level at Gloucestershire University, Cheltenham which is recognised by the International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA Europe), enabling graduates to work anywhere in the world.
Opportunities exist to work in private practice as consultants undertaking commissions for both public authorities and private clients. There are also career opportunities in government departments, public bodies, local authorities, industry, sustainable development agencies and in the offices of architects, engineers and building contracting companies.
The course is designed to enable graduates to undertake work in both the commercial and domestic markets. Studio projects develop design skills, critical facility and presentation skills. These projects introduce the student to an increasingly complex range of environmental design.
