How each course is taught and assessed:
You will study 4 units.
The course is classroom based; teaching consists of lectures and practical demonstrations, with outdoor discussions in the gardens wherever this can help understanding. Each unit is assessed by a short written examination set by the Royal Horticultural Society in February and June each year.
There is no compulsory course work, but you will be given the opportunity to try sample examination questions if you are going take the examination.
Achievement: When you have passed exams in all the units, the Royal Horticultural Society will award a Level 3 Certificate in the Principles of Plant Growth, Health and Applied Propagation.
Note: If you have opted not to undertake the examinations for either course but work through all the exercises and practice questions we will issue a certificate of attendance.
