Helping you to make the right decision about a career in garden design

It’s important that you make the right decision when deciding on a course. We believe that you should get all the information you need and all your questions answered by us before you enroll. You are welcome to sit in on a class with our current students and ask them how they are progressing and how their study works for them. From experience we know that this will help you decide which course is best for you.
