How it Works

With online learning you can begin studying within hours!

Online learning means that we deliver the course material to your in-box and you can then save it to your computer or print it off for reading at your leisure. You do not need to be online to work through your course material.

Our courses allow you to study in your own time and at your own pace, from anywhere in the world. You have one-to-one access to an expert personal tutor throughout the course.

Studying Your Course

You work through course materials written by expert horticulturists and send your assignments to a qualified personal tutor for feedback on your work. You can also contact your tutor at any stage if you need additional help or advice. If you’re completing an exam course your tutor will work with you right up to exam day, answering questions during revision, and if you wish, completing past exam papers as extra assignments.

Each course has been designed to be easy to follow and includes a set number of assignments. The course materials give full guidance on how to prepare and complete each one.

How Much Time Will I Need?

This will depend partly on the course you choose, but it also depends on how much time you can spend on your studies. The advantage of our courses is that you can work at your own pace.

What is Included in the Course Fee?

The course fee includes everything you need to complete your course: full study material, supplementary reading, and full tutorial support. If there is an exam at the end of your course, we’ll also provide past exam papers and your tutor will continue to work with you right up to the day of your exam.

How Much Tutor Support is Included?

When you become a student you’re assigned an expert personal tutor who you can contact at any time by email and who will work with you throughout your course. A member of our team is also available by instant chat between 9 am and 9 pm, 7 days a week, to answer any questions you might have at time to suit you. If you choose an exam course, your tutor will work with you all the way through revision up to exam day. Click on the chat button in the bottom right of your screen to speak to an adviser now.

How do I Enrol?

Getting started on a Garden School course is simple. You can enrol on-line, using the Paypal buttons on each course page. This allows you to enrol securely using a credit or debit card or your Paypal account if you have one. Your course materials will arrive in your in-box within 2 hours of us receiving your enrolment details. You will also receive contact details for your personal tutor, so you can get started on your course and your first assignment straight away.

Where Can I Study?

You can study at home, on the train, at work, or in the garden – wherever you please! There are no fixed classes to attend.
