The BA (Hons) Professional Floristry and Floral Design degree is a full-time, three year course that will equip students with the relevant skills to set them apart in the fascinating and varied billion-pound flower industry. The programme is a unique blend of floral design, business, marketing and post-harvest. It will encompass key aspects of working within industry, excellent practical workmanship and technique within a range of floral designs and yet develop independent creative thinkers who can communicate at all levels. You will be taught by a range of highly skilled academics with extensive knowledge gained through industry experience. The degree is designed for students who are interested in a career working with fresh materials, dealing with people and selling emotions, but which also allows you to be creative and entrepreneurial. Past students have opened their own retail businesses, worked freelance in high end florists in the UK and overseas and gone on to teach or study at masters level.
