  • evaluate a space and its components (demonstrate the ability to attribute different values to a space and its components),
  • carry out spatial planning,
  • demonstrate understanding of the theoretical foundations of artistic creativity,
  • recognise artistic creativity in a developmental context,
  • identify the laws and development of settlement in a space and its spatial planning and social implications,
  • apply legal principles to the regulation of space and the protection of the environment,
  • incorporate legislation from the field of spatial planning, landscape and environmental protection into their professional activity,
  • use modern bio-engineering methods in landscape planning,
  • identify and evaluate degradation of the environment as a landscape regulation issue,
  • identify indigenous plant species in the natural environment,
  • map the habitats where indigenous plant species are found,
  • use a taxonomy of plants,
  • recognise plant species that are used in plantations (ornamental plants) and their use with regard to their characteristics,
  • design (create) plantations (functional, ornamental) of (ornamental) plants in a space,
  • identify ecosystems or parts of ecosystems in the natural environment (communities, ecosystems, habitat types),
  • identify phenomena in the physical world (geomorphological and pedological phenomena, erosion dynamics, geological phenomena, water and climate/meteorological phenomena, etc.)
  • demonstrate understanding of the general laws of nature (e.g. evolution/succession, circulation of materials and energy, other processes in the ecosystem, etc.),
  • demonstrate understanding of the technical bases of planning infrastructure installations in the environment,
  • make sketches/freehand drawings,
  • demonstrate a capacity for artistic expression (in various media),
  • undertake graphic design – elaborate graphic presentations or solutions,

  • demonstrate understanding of and evaluate the historical achievements of landscape (garden) design,
  • plan the renovation of historical structures,
  • apply general concepts, methods, etc. to specific problems (adaptation to context),
  • work with a computer (automated planning, processing of images and texts, statistical data, use of spatial information systems), process (spatial) information,
  • show capacity for creative searching (the ability to be creatively curious),
  • generate a landscape form (with natural characteristics and taking into account design starting points),
  • cooperate with experts from related fields: agriculture (horticulture), forestry, water management, acquisition of mineral resources, production of energy, land surveying, environmental protection,
  • lay out play areas for children and spaces for recreation and sport,
  • demonstrate understanding of the links between landscape design and social and economic development,

-

  • Matura or
  • vocational matura with additional examination, or
  • school-leaving examination (prior to 1 June 1995) under any four-year secondary school programme.

-

Students' knowledge is assessed by means of practical exercises and seminar papers, and also via products, projects, performances, services, etc. and by examinations. Examination performance is graded as follows: 10 (excellent); 9 (very good: above-average knowledge but with some mistakes); 8 (very good: solid results); 7 (good); 6 (adequate: knowledge satisfies minimum criteria); 5–1 (inadequate). In order to pass an examination, a candidate must achieve a grade between adequate (6) and excellent (10).
