This final year programme reflects the remarkable breadth and creative potential of contemporary floristry design practice, providing a balanced approach to floristry design theory, research and practical application. It focuses on students becoming increasingly independent, managing large-scale projects, forming a comprehensive design portfolio and culminating in a final exhibition.
As with the foundation degree, students are encouraged to participate in high-profile floristry competitions and live projects. This has led to some prestigious wins, including at Chelsea Flower Show, Harrogate Flower Show and at the British Floristry Association's competition.
Students are encouraged to explore the full potential of their own creativity on a programme tailored to meet their personal needs as floristry designers. You will apply concepts and principles in exciting and innovative new frameworks and relationships, pursuing your own areas of interest and realising your personal creative preferences and aspirations.
