The Royal Horticultural Society’s Master of Horticulture (MHort) award, now accepting applications for autumn, has been revamped to reflect the latest industry research and developments and changing needs of employers.
The degree-level award will also now be more accessible to distance learners across the globe, with more delivery taking place online.
The award, which can be flexibly studied over three to five years, is aimed at those who already work within the horticultural industry and are in a supervisory role. It gives learners the opportunity to expand on their knowledge and skills in a broad range of areas, specialise in a chosen field and extend their professional network.
Former alumni whose careers have been shaped by studying the course include Matthew Pottage, curator of RHS Garden Wisley, and Doug Stewart, plantsperson and horticultural consultant.
Suzanne Moss, RHS Horticultural courses manager, said: “The MHort is a flexible and affordable way to gain a degree level qualification and take that next step in your career. The recent developments mean that it is relevant to a wider range of horticultural learners, whatever their sector, or global location.”

The deadline for applications is 4 September.
