Study horticulture

The horticultural sector includes everything from plant care to landscape management. Our practical courses cover planting, propagating, irrigating, pruning, processing, and fertilising. Practise your horticulture skills in large grounds that include sprawling lawns, gardens, nurseries, and reclaimed forest parks.

The horticulture industry is experiencing strong growth, with more than 50,000 job openings expected in nurseries and gardens across Australia over the next five years. An increased focus from both the public and private sector on horticultural biodiversity and sustainability is helping to drive this growth.

We offer a range of horticulture courses including landscaping, turf management, and arboriculture. Studying horticulture can set you on the path to becoming a greenskeeper, arborist, or landscaper as well as opening up a range of generalist horticulture roles in nurseries, parks, and gardens.
