Become a Master of Horticulture with the RHS

The Royal Horticultural Society's Master of Horticulture (MHort) is a degree-level award that is perfect for industry professionals looking to expand their knowledge in a dynamic and affordable way.

The programme’s unique blended learning approach, which consists primarily of online assessments, allows for flexible learning, enabling candidates to work around other commitments.

Centred on learning from industry experts, the MHort programme features a recently revised programme of study that incorporates the skills required by current horticultural business. Through guided research, the MHort focuses on growing and developing professional and effective managerial skills relevant to the candidate’s own situation and requirements. In 2019 the first annual MHort conference will host all three year groups, alumni, guest speakers and our specialist tutor team for a weekend of knowledge-sharing and a dynamic and cross-sector networking opportunity.

"I knew that the RHS Master of Horticulture would be great for my career progression, but I am surprised by just how much I enjoy it. Researching the horticultural industry for the first few assessments has already widened my knowledge and I have found it a pleasure to explore different institutions and areas that are a long way out of my comfort zone."

Distance is no barrier. The MHort is an international programme, with many candidates from across the globe. Online delivery means that candidates can choose to attend workshops and networking opportunities at RHS gardens or study remotely — whatever works around busy schedules and commitments. This flexible delivery means that it is easy for candidates in any location and with busy lives to expand and develop their horticultural education.

Our MHort Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) offers many helpful and easy-to-use features including webinars, research resources and essential learning tools. Enjoy the forums, where our unique network of candidates, alumni and tutor team share industry knowledge, research and events, and regular live chats with the tutors are a great way to get the most out of your learning journey.

Applications for the 2018 intake are now open and close at the end of June. For more information or to apply, please visit our website at rhs.org.uk/mhort
