Is your work historically-referenced or hard-edged contemporary?

Whatever your personal style, we'll take you from the design stage to realisation of your vision. From drawing board to iMac, from studio to site, our Garden Design programmes are intended to produce students with a wide range of design and innovative skills, allied with positive entrepreneurial abilities - thus allowing them to enter and progress careers within the industry, which demands high levels of professionalism.

Horticulture Overview

Our horticulture courses teach you all the skills you will need to be successful in the gardening world. Facilities include a new horticultural unit, glasshouses, a conservatory growing tropical plants, the arboretum and woodland areas, plant nursery, playing fields and potting sheds – all built on a sustainable blueprint.

If you’re the type of person who prefers to get your hands dirty, then our horticulture courses will prune your talent to and turn your passion into a career.
