2018 enrolment best ever for London College Of Garden Design

The London College of Garden Design (LCGD) has experienced its fastest full enrolment onto its one- year Garden Design Diploma since the College was first founded.

Director Andrew Fisher Tomlin said: "Places are now enrolling as early as over a year before the course starts in September and we already have students enrolling for 2019-20. We put it down to our unique combination of always having practising professionals to lecture and tutor students, a great location in Kew Gardens as well as the regular success of students in competitions such as the Society of Garden Designers Awards."
The College has recently launched a new series of films from graduates including RHS Young Designer of the Year 2018 Will Williams, They talk about their experience post graduation and about what LCGD has done for them in launching their careers.
In the College’s 10th year, graduates have had unique access to several graduate competitions specially run by the College for them. These include high profile projects on the South Bank and at The Savoy Hotel in central London as well as RHS Chelsea Flower Show exhibits.
Fisher Tomlin said: "In addition to our main Garden Design Diploma the college’s Planting Design Diploma, now in it’s 4 th year, has become an essential course for many wanting to explore this subject in more depth and we are seeing an increasing number of graduates from other design schools enrolling." Enrolment for this unique course is now open for commencement at the end of January 2019.
The College will be at The Landscape Show in Battersea Park next week with 8 free seminars offering
a taste of the college’s courses to new and experienced garden professionals.
