How the course works

This course consists of two units which are broken down into 4 topics.

Your first set of course materials will be sent to you when you enrol. You can start as soon as you want and progress through the course at your own pace (you have 2 years to complete it), studying when and where you choose. This flexibility makes it easy to fit learning around work and family commitments.

The extensive course materials have been developed by gardening experts and are clear and straightforward, so your studying is easy and enjoyable. As you complete each lesson, your tutor will return your marked assignment with constructive feedback and guidance. (You can also contact your tutor or the support team for help at any point during your studies.)

All the required study materials are included.

On successful completion of your studies and the RHS exams you will be awarded the nationally recognised RHS qualification. You can sit the examinations either online from home or at our centre in Devon.

* RHS registration fee plus RHS standard examination and assessment fees apply and will be invoiced separately. These fees are due within 30 days of commencing your studies. Individual centre requirements and fees are then payable when registering for each examination.
