Horticulture Degrees

Horticultural Studies - pathways to learning with ACS Distance Education:
choose from a wide range of courses written and taught by our specialist tutors.

Today degrees are often pushed as an essential route to a good job. However, there are so many other factors which will determine whether a person gets a good job or not -

  • Enthusiasm
  • Effectiveness
  • Efficiency
  • Knowledge
  • Education

We also have to consider what do we mean by a “good job”? Not everyone wants a high-flying job earning a lot of money. Some people will consider a “good job” as one they enjoy, one that is rewarding, one that makes them feel good about themselves.

Only you know the answer to whether a degree is essential for you to get a “good job”. There are a number of pathways you might take before moving on to a degree. If you have not studied for sometime, this is also a good way to get you used to stduying again.

In addition, studying by distance learning with ACS gives you a flexible approach - you can study at a time and place that suits you, using our online and eLearning options. This means that if you are working, you can continue to earn whilst you study.
