To meet the high demand of horticulturists, this is a course unique to the UK that specialises in training horticultural managers and technicians who practice horticulture in urban areas. Three main options allow you to specialise in Urban Design, Green-space Management or Urban Food Production, all of which can be transferred to any horticultural setting. Plumpton College is an ideal setting for this qualification, with laboratory and grounds facilities at the main college site, along with our Stanmer Park site on the edge of Brighton which boasts extensive planting, micro-propagation facilities and a unique aquaponic house that is at the forefront of UK aquaponic systems.
