“I have always been interested in gardening and design and I feel the FdSc in Horticulture combines these two interests well. I was also familiar with the Brackenhurst campus and thought it would be a lovely place to study horticulture as it has fantastic resources.
“The course offers a huge range of skills and experiences which means that there are so many routes you can go down in the horticultural sector. Many of the skills are also transferable which would open up opportunities in lots of other sectors as well.
“All tutors on the course are friendly, approachable and extremely experienced and knowledgeable. As the course is smaller than others you get to know your course tutors really well.
“The student life at Brackenhurst is fantastic! There is everything you need on site or just down the road in Southwell. As the campus is relatively small it is easy to get to know lots of people and there is a real sense of community.
“After I have finished at Brackenhurst I hope to go on to work in the Landscape Architect sector. I have been particularly interested in sustainable urban management aspects we have studies as part of our Applied Design module and I would really like to work in this field.”
