About this course

A degree in Garden Design will allow you to become professional, work with other industry experts and produce work to high creative standards. Garden designers focus on the detail in design. Intricate, intimate spaces with plants chosen for their colour, texture, interest and scent are the hallmark of high quality garden design. As a professional Garden Designer, you may become involved with the design of courtyards, school grounds, community gardens, private estates, show gardens, interior design and historic landscapes. During the course, a range of design projects will be undertaken that cover all aspects of design, beginning with smaller-scale projects and culminating in the final year with detailed design work with the potential to exhibit at a garden festival such as Tatton or Southport.
Here at Myerscough, we are situated within beautiful grounds with an arboretum, ornamental gardens, greenhouses and plots where you can learn about plants and practice your design skills. As students, you will also have access to UCLan in the bustling city centre of Preston. Another benefit of studying Garden Design at Myerscough is the multi-disciplinary team that you will be working with. We have excellent horticultural facilities and this particular course has a strong horticultural basis. Garden Designers who understand and can use their knowledge of plants are in demand in industry. We also have Creative Design here at Myerscough and you will have access to photography and floristry tutors, and materials should you wish to develop your artistic and presentation skills.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
