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.

An increased focus from both the public and private sector on horticultural biodiversity and sustainability is helping to drive employment growth in the industry. More than 50,000 job openings are expected in nurseries and gardens across Australia over the next five years. 

We offer a range of horticulture courses in specialisations including landscaping, production nursery, turf management, parks and gardens, and conservation and land management. Studying horticulture can set you on the path to becoming a greenkeeper, landscaper or park ranger as well as opening up a range of generalist horticulture roles in nurseries, parks, and gardens.
