Course Description

The FdSc Horticulture is a two year (three year part-time) programme which will help you explore a wide range of horticulture and plant science topics, enabling you to be effective in all forms of amenity and commercial employment — from landscaping and garden management to biosciences, horticulture journalism or teaching. This programme is a mixture of science, practical horticulture and business management and comprises twelve modules, each worth twenty credits. You will be encouraged to develop your particular interests within the programme modules, with field trips to a range of gardens here in the South West and to world class plant collections like Kew, Wisley and the Eden Project. Specialist horticulture teaching is complemented by personal development through the professional practice module, 20 days’ relevant work experience and an independent research project of your choice
