Eden Project Learning

Study for a university-level degree in Garden and Landscape Design, Horticulture, and Plant Science at the world-famous Eden Project. Our students earn recognised higher education qualifications from HNC to BSc (Hons), while gaining practical hands-on experience in a unique learning environment.

A diverse team of subject specialists support you in your studies, many of them partner private practice with their teaching commitments, ensuring a contextualised learning experience that prepares you for industry or a career in academia.

Design students under the tutelage of the current course team have won numerous awards, including the Royal Horticultural Society Young Designer of the Year, the Prince of Wales Trophy for Sustainable Horticulture, and the Society of Garden Designers Student of the Year. Through live projects, you will learn how to create stimulating and thought- provoking private gardens and public landscape, while developing your own unique design identity and philosophy.

The science pathway encourages students to use the Eden Project plant collections and production facilities to investigate a range of subject areas including propagation, pest and disease management, plant and soil interactions as well as the important relationship between plants and people. The horticulture programmes provide students with the skills and experience for a rewarding career embracing tradition, technology and innovation. Students explore opportunities and solutions for a resilient horticulture sector, which is able to meet the contemporary challenges of a changing global environment.

Students cement their knowledge through work placements at prestigious horticultural institutions, including The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Tresco Abbey Gardens, Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, and the Chelsea Physic Garden. Our students also apply and develop their practical skills around the Eden site, including the iconic Tropical and Mediterranean biomes.
