If you're passionate about the design and creation of beautiful garden spaces, the Graduate Certificate in Garden Design can help you turn that passion into a career.

Study while you work

Classes are generally in the evenings, so regardless of whether you're a seasoned industry professional or newly-inspired green thumb, you'll have time to participate.

Learn at a garden campus

You'll spend your time getting your hands dirty – literally – alongside horticulture experts at our beautiful Burnley campus and beyond.

Keep it real

We build on theory, but our teaching focuses on real-world examples and case studies, with plenty of practical activities and excursions, to make sure you leave the course with the practical knowledge you’ll need in the workplace.
