Level 6 Component Awards

Part time courses (or component awards) allow learners to select individual subjects in horticulture from our major awards at Level 6.  These courses will enable the student to develop a greater understanding of the sciences underpinning their chosen sector, and will also help them improve their skills and competence at a practical level.

 These courses are offered at a time and in a manner to best meet the demands of the horticulture industry. Modules are delivered throughout the academic year during which time students will undertake a full programme of both academic and practical training. As well as providing the learner with a taste of 3rd level training in their chosen sector, these courses will equip the learner with the knowledge, skill and competence relevant to the sector in which they are employed, or in which they wish to pursue employment.
