About this course

For over 20 years, the Diploma in Garden Design has provided an intensive and fulfilling course for those with no previous knowledge of design.

Past students have been equipped with the skills and techniques to flourish in this creative profession: setting up successful design practices; attaining gold medals at both the Chelsea and Hampton Court Flower Shows and, for some, continuing their studies of gardens and landscapes at degree and masters level. 

Students joining WSD become part of an international community of academics and professionals who are skilled in design, horticulture, landscape construction, garden history, ecology and the many other aspects needed to achieve successful garden and landscape designs. You will have access to skilled and experienced tutors who will inspire and support your studies. In addition, WSD provides you with access to design studios, relevant software, reprographic facilities, a specialist library, world-renowned speakers, behind the scenes visits and a diverse campus of gardens and landscape features. The tutors' professional contacts and collaborations allow knowledge of contemporary design issues and construction techniques to constantly update student learning.
