Led by the landscape students of Bordeaux, Blois and Lille, French landscape students have been striking for the right to have landscape education on the basis of a Bachelors degree plus a Masters degree following usual practice throughout Europe.

This decision devalues French landscape architecture education compared with other countries, according to the students.
