Program Description

This is the perfect Landscape Design Course if you are serious about building a career as a Landscape Designer and you want to design private and commercial landscapes

Landscape Design - HND / Associate Degree Course (Online)

This Landscape Design Course is an internationally recognised award that qualifies you to offer both private and commercial landscape design services. This HND in Landscape Design Course will look at advanced planting techniques, designing & building hardscape structures and incorporating services within your design, such as outdoor lighting, irrigation and drainage. This course will give you the additional skills and knowledge you need to design outdoor spaces of all shapes and sizes and on multiple levels, including sloping sites.

Our HND in Landscape Design Course is an internationally recognised award (240 UK University credits/64 US Semester credits) that will enable you to join the Professional Landscape Design Associations and it meet most educational requirements where licensing is required. This is a valuable qualification in its own right (equivalent to Foundation/Associate degree) and you may also achieve a full BA (Hons) Degree with a one-year “top-up” course. What’s more you can start today with no previous experience or qualifications.

This HND in Landscape Design course is completed in two stages as follows:

  • Stage 1 focuses entirely on garden design. This is a comprehensive, stand-alone course in its own right and has been designed to give you a complete and rounded set of skills so you can begin working in the industry once you have successfully completed this stage. You will receive an interim award and you’ll have a fantastic portfolio so you can start building valuable experience while you continue learning. All our students find this a very valuable approach.
  • Stage 2 builds on this foundation but delves much deeper into advanced planting techniques and hardscape design. You’ll also cover topics related to professional practice such as project management, marketing and other specific business skills to complement your design skills.

However, our online HND in Landscape Design Course gives you with the opportunity to achieve this award in as little as two years, while continuing to work in your existing employment. You have maximum flexibility because you can work at your own pace and you may continue straight onto the final year of a BA degree at a later stage if you choose. What’s, you can start today with no previous experience or qualifications – just a genuine commitment and willingness to learn.
