WHAT
Our hands-on and practical courses are designed to help develop the knowledge, skills and practical experience needed to work in the dynamic, developing horticulture sector

WHY
Previous graduates have moved into a variety of careers, from landscape design, stadia grounds-keeping, garden centres and nurseries, to organic food production, golf course management, parks and gardens management and even teaching. Many have gone into business for themselves in these areas too.

WHO
If you’re the active, outdoorsy, entrepreneurial type, who’s creative and hands-on; if you’re interested in the environment, where your food is grown and how parks and golf courses are designed and cared for; then you should probably look no further than Horticulture.

HOW
Designed to incorporate both the theoretical and practical aspects of horticulture, courses include modules on organic production, sustainability, landscape design and turf-grass management as well as computing, business and personal development.

We offer practical hands-on opportunities to develop skills and we engage with the local community on real life practical projects, designed and built by students, to a budget. This allows students to get to know each other and their lecturers in a working environment and for skills to develop naturally as the course progresses. Work placement is an essential part of this course.

And, as we’re sitting on circa 56 acres of land on the fringes of the fastest growing city in Europe, we’ve got an opportunity to develop that other courses simply do not have.
