Distance Learning

Study When You Have the Time and Enthusiasm

When you study with us you choose the where and when – so you can work and study at the same time. You need to have access to e-mail and the internet, but not all the time. A great deal of studying is done without the help of a computer. Our method is based on individual tutoring, so that it is easy for you to follow up the course plan we decided together. You will continually use your creative skills to solve the various and multi-facetted problems you’ll be facing. You’ll soon notice how fun it is to build on your knowledge and skills and can take on increasingly difficult tasks. Naturally, you receive all the necessary help from us. Our teachers have all trained at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, but with different specialisations such as biology, horticulture, landscape planning and architecture, landscape management and garden design, so we ensure that you can access the competence that is the best suited to your needs and wishes.

How it Works …

Once you start your studies you will have access to a personalised course website. This contains the course contents with lectures, factual texts, slide shows, videos, tests and hand-in assignments. As this is an open learning course you will enjoy high flexibility regarding time and place of your studies, as well as interactive media platforms such as webinars and chat sessions with your teacher and other students. Exercises using social media will also take place.

You complete your course via the course website and stay in contact with your teacher and your fellow students. An important element of our courses in garden design is real life case studies, where you can train in your role as garden designer.

When you have finished your course and all the modules have been given a pass grade, you will receive a course certificate.

The course is studied at a distance and has flexible start dates. You begin when you have the time and energy! You can access the course website within ten days of registering and can then start your course with us.
