BA(Hons) Garden Design at University College Falmouth
At Falmouth, good garden design is about great thinking.  And what better place to stimulate thinking than the most visually rich college in the country, where you are never short of inspiration – from the rugged landscape and sub-tropical gardens of Cornwall to the stimulation of studying with other artists?

The only Garden Design course in the UK based at a college of art, design and media, Falmouth takes a unique approach; addressing the discipline from a visual perspective but grounding it firmly in design and horticulture.  Through our partnership with Duchy College, you’ll learn about organic practice, conservation, soil and plants at the same time as developing your design skills, creativity and fully-rounded knowledge of garden making.  From conception and planning to the creation and management of landscapes, you’ll master all stages of the garden design process, making models and prototypes as well as producing a variety of graphics to convey your designs.

There are three key components to our approach; place, people and environment, and an emphasis on designing public as well as private spaces.  History and culture, different people’s needs and environmental responsibility all play important roles in creating gardens and smaller site-specific public spaces, and on graduation you’ll have a full understanding of how these components interact when fulfilling a client’s brief. You’ll also spend time working with the local community, designing rural estates, urban spaces, sculpture parks and show gardens, and on live projects.

Add to that lectures from experienced staff and high-profile guest speakers, demonstrations and the most amazing natural surroundings and you’ve got the recipe for garden design success.
