Course summary

About the course

The course is delivered at University Centre Myerscough and awarded by the University of Central Lancashire. The course is designed for students who wish to develop their knowledge of the exciting scientific and technical developments currently taking shape within the global horticultural industry. A focus on enterprise and research encourages independent learning, allowing the investigation of novel approaches to plant cultivation, which have potential to allow plant production to be achieved more sustainably or the use of green infrastructure to improve the urban environment.

An integral and exciting part of this course is the opportunity for students to conduct their own piece of original research in an area of horticulture that interests them. This not only allows a real area of expertise to be developed but gives Myerscough students further recognition as they progress to employment.

Learning Environment:

Learning activities on the course are diverse, including lectures, seminars, tutorials, practical sessions and workshops.

Students are expected to undertake extensive independent study and research to support lectures, seminars and assessments. Group work and group presentations form an important part of the course. Students will have access to specialist IT hardware and software, an on-line learning environment and reference facility.

Assessment:

This course is designed to ensure a wide variety of assessment types are undertaken, many of which directly reflect industry-related documentation and practices. These assessment methods will include technical reports, portfolios, exams, individual presentations, laboratory/practical reports, research posters and extended project work.

Progression

On successful completion of the course, students may apply for further postgraduate studies such as MSc or PhD.

Careers

The course equips graduates for careers in scientific research, self-employment, parks management, education, commercial growing and retail horticulture. Professionalism, independent thinking and innovation are emphasised throughout the course to prepare students for the demands of these positions.
