Clare Freemantle – FdSc Horticulture with Plantsmanship and Design

Whilst looking to retrain for a new career, I visited Sparsholt on an Open Day to find out more about studying Horticulture, as I knew the College had a great reputation in this field. Once I found out about the broad content of the course, I didn’t look back.

I am pleased with the wealth of new knowledge I have already gathered in such a short period of time. I have also been really impressed with how easily I have fitted into college life as a mature student.

I intend to make the most of the work experience opportunities available to help me consider my career possibilities for the future.  With the wide ranging content of the course, from plant identification and nomenclature to an introduction to business, I hope to have a choice of options. Sparsholt has excellent connections with the Horticulture industry, so I have regular opportunities to meet with experts in the field, to gain first hand insights and to build new networks.

The Horticulture facilities at the College are excellent and complement the academic elements of my course. The library has a vast range of books and databases to back up and enrich my learning.
