Capel Manor launches garden design degree

London land-based college Capel Manor is launching a foundation degree in garden design.

Its first foundation degree in Garden Design and Plantsmanship will launch this autumn in partnership with the Royal Agricultural University (RAU), Cirencester.

The new foundation degree is designed for working professionals and those wishing to start a career as a garden designer.

Vice principal Malcolm Goodwin said: "We are immensely excited to be launching our foundation degree and proud to be working with the RAU whose national and international reputation for higher education is second to none. This course includes many innovative features not seen in other courses such as high-end software and enterprise skills.

"Capel has a long standing record of achievement in garden design and our Alumni include many of the country’s best designers. Our students design and build show gardens at the Chelsea Flower Show, Hampton Court Flower Show and the Ideal Homes Show as well as building gardens at Capel and for other clients. The difference at Capel is that our students drive these projects with tutors offering support and guidance."
