With an HND in Horticulture, you will gain a sound practical base of knowledge in horticulture and an understanding of the theory behind the practices. You will be well equipped to enter the profession and should be able to take up a management level position after gaining experience in the industry. The course offers some choice of modules: Gardens and Greenspace elective modules provide the competencies to work in the parks, gardens and landscape sector at a professional level; Production Horticulture modules prepare you for employment in fruit or vegetable production, greenhouse protected edible crop production, or ornamental plant production. Production can be on a small specialist scale in the UK or alternatively, in nurseries growing millions of trees, shrubs and bedding plants. Whatever the scale, this course develops the essential practical, technical and scientific expertise you will require. Upon successful completion of this course, students may apply to join year 3 of SRUC’s BSc/BSc (Hons) Horticulture or BSc/BSc (Hons) Horticulture with Plantsmanship course.
