The European master’s in landscape architecture’s Fellowship from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Paysage

The EMiLA fellowship at ENSP Versailles and Marseille is awarded annually to an emerging designer or confirmed landscape architect, whose work articulates the potential for landscape as a medium of design in the public realm in the frame of anticipatory transformations at territorial and urban scale. The position is a one-year position at half time. The teaching language is English. 
Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Paysage
ENSP has educated Landscape architects at The Potager du Roi in Versailles since 1974 at the demand of the Ministry of Agriculture and created a new corpus of landscape architect designers capable of answering to urban, suburban and agrarian modernisation. The school educates students to the highest level. Each year 55 students obtain an internationally recognised master’s degree in landscape architecture named DEP (Diplôme d’Etat de Paysagiste). There are 32 permanent teachers and over 200 specialists and professional bodies contributing to the rich field of teaching practice. 
The EMiLA team 
EMiLA is a master’s degree run by five leading European schools and universities: 
  • Amsterdam University of the Arts / Amsterdam Academy of Architecture (AHK)
  • Universitat Polytècnica de Catalunya (UPC)/ Escola Tècnica Superior d’Arquitectura (ETSAB)/ Escola Superior d’Agricultura de Barcelona (ESAB)
  • The University of Edinburgh/Edinburgh College of Art (ECA)/ The Edinburgh School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture (ESALA)
  • Leibniz Universität Hannover (LUH)/ Fakultät für Architektur und Landschaft
  • Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Paysage Versailles/ Marseille (ENSP)

The aim of the master is to foster students to be more aware of the European dimensions in landscape either at policy level as at territorial level through design and be able to understand better our cultural landscape differences. Moreover, the curriculum offers students to learn from other schools/universities’ pedagogic methods and create their new network. ( )
