Horticulture students working in Hamilton Gardens

Horticulture

Amenity Horticulture: The care and maintenance of parks, gardens and open spaces.

Put your green thumb to use, get yourself an outside office and make a difference to the world around us. We’ll give you the knowledge, training and skills to care for public and private gardens, parks and open spaces, while you get the benefit of learning at our beautiful Hamilton Gardens campus!

As an amenity horticulturalist you’ll contribute to society through advising on plant choices, overseeing horticultural programmes, planning regeneration projects and managing green spaces.

Typically students will study the horitcultural programmes over two years to develop the skills and knowledge to be amenity gardeners, collection curators, grounds people or amenity contractors.

Programmes

Level 3
Students can choose to study either the General Horticulture (Level 3) in semester one and/or the Applied Horticultural Services (Level 3) (Amenity) in semester two. 

Students who choose to complete their study after the first year will have the skills to work as a skilled gardener in this area.

Level 4
In your second year you will study the Advanced Horticultural Trades (Level 4) (Amenity). Graduates will be qualified to be a team leader in a amenity garden situation. This is a 12 month programme.
