Information from the course leader
Start up of Large scale becomes virtual due to Covid-19
Dear students, I’m afraid that it has become necessary to take precautions due to the current and very uncertain situation (Covid-19), with increasing restrictions in Skåne. This is in respect for the health of both students and teachers, and also the risk of facing sudden changes not planned for the coming days. Thus, we decided that the first two weeks of the large scale-course will be fully digital, with exception only for the lecture & bike tour on Nov. 10, since the lecturer is from the nearby region, biking must be the safest way of moving around today and we really want to meet you at some point! But for the rest of the first two weeks, the changes means participation foremost by the Zoom-link provided by the course handbook. The excursion on Nov. 3 will also have to be exchanged by desk top studies. We will re-write assignment no. 1 and provide you with an updated assignment and schedule by Monday latest! So please check any updates on canvas regularly. Still – we hope for a really good course, better times and look forward to seeing you on line on Monday! Anders, Matilda, Emily & many more
Dear students, Welcome to the course “Planning project – large scale structures, analysis and EIA”! We are working intensively to get finished with all the details right now and there are some great (hopefully ?) improvements from last year. With some help from you, we are convinced about this course being a success, even though Covid-19 is not working in our favor right now. Speaking of – due to Covid-19 and safety measures (size of room, busses etc.) we would like to know if you have decided to take part of the course or if you have decided for another one. The total number of students is more important for us to know about in advance than ever, considering the circumstances. We would be glad if you could send me an answer by reply mail as soon as possible about this issue – both those who will definitely join the course and those who will not, or even if you haven’t decided yet, and also mention if you do not speak or read any Swedish at all and if you have a bike available for a short bike excursion from Alnarp to Lund on November 10. Some parts of the course will take place IRL, with necessary considerations taken to all safety aspects, and some will take place digitally. Some of our guests are not allowed to travel to Alnarp, and during these days we will make sure that all lectures will be digital, in order for you not having to transport yourselves between home and campus too often. When activities are taking place at campus, there will always be a possibility to join from a distance for those of us who have any symptoms or are part of a risk group. But we still think it’s of importance to see each other now and then and have given IRL-priority to the introduction day, excursions, literature- and feedback seminars (all Fridays). Supervision will be held both IRL and digitally. The schedule will be updated from time to time until the start of the course – please check the course home page now and then – and we will also produce a course handbook for you, explaining the different parts of the course week by week, the purpose of the activities etc. Welcome to the introductions day, where there will be loads of more information! Anders, Matilda & many more!

Specific entry requirements: 90 credits in one of the following subjects:
• landscape architecture
• landscape planning
• built environment
• spatial planning
• landscape science
• environmental science
and an approved portfolio accordning to specific instructions. See link for portfolio instructions during additional information.
OR 150 credits from a Landscape Architecture programme at SLU or an Erasmus partner university.
English 6 or equivalent.
ObjectivesAfter completion of the course, the student should be able to:
- select, motivate and implement those landscape analyses that are relevant prior to planned changes in the landscape
- draw up planning documents for different planning stages and describe the activities of different authorities, parties and actors.
- describe the consequence of installations for the landscape, e.g. for the natural and cultural environment and for human health, e.g. in form of an Environmental or Social Impact Assessment.
ContentThe course deals with large-scale structure at municipal and super-municipal level. The object of the course varies from year to year. Work components comprise advanced landscape analyses, documents for dialogue and consultation according to planning and building regulations and an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). Some already completed analyses and planning documents will be problematised and some individual proposals for improvements will be made.
The course comprises lectures, excursions, literature seminars, criticism- reviews (compulsory), supervision exercises in studio (compulsory) and independent studio work.
The course gives 15 skills training credits for students in the Landscape Architecture Programme.
Formats and requirements for examinationLecturers will evaluate the quality of compulsory assignments and reports submitted by students, their ability to make oral presentations and their ability to engage each other in critical and analytical discussions. Specifications of compulsory attendance and assignments are given at course start.
- If the student fails a test, the examiner may give the student a supplementary assignment, provided this is possible and there is reason to do so.
- If the student has been granted special educational support because of a disability, the examiner has the right to offer the student an adapted test, or provide an alternative assessment.
- If changes are made to this course syllabus, or if the course is closed, SLU shall decide on transitional rules for examination of students admitted under this syllabus but who have not yet passed the course.
- For the examination of a degree project (independent project), the examiner may also allow the student to add supplemental information after the deadline. For more information on this, please refer to the regulations for education at Bachelor's and Master's level.
- The right to take part in teaching and/or supervision only applies to the course date to which the student has been admitted and registered on.
- If there are special reasons, the student may take part in course components that require compulsory attendance at a later date. For more information on this, please refer to the regulations for education at Bachelor's and Master's level.

After completion of the course, the student should be able to:
For a pass, students should be able to:
1. select, motivate and implement those landscape analyses and assessments that are relevant prior to planned changes in the landscape and relevant considering the chosen perspective
2. have a clear logic in suggested project plan/planning documents in relation to what is stated above
3. carry through the individual project thoroughly
For grade 4, students individual work should also include:
2. elaborated and innovative ideas for how to carry through the suggested project from idea to plan/design
3. EIA and other possible (relevant) analyses carried through in a sufficiently detailed manner and with a clear logic related to the chosen topic
For grade 5, students individual work should, on top of what is required for grade 4, include:
1. a distinct and clear logic between analyses, planned actions and assessment
2. professional qualities of high standards regarding language, layout and argumentation
3. Long term environmental and/or social consequences should be taken into consideration/discussion. An extra plus will be given for consideration and discussion regarding cumulative effects.
Students should have taken active part in group assignments.
Students must have delivered their individual work before deadline in order to achieve grade 5.
