( Mihail, 25/09/2013 ) Q: I'm interesting for "Higher Advanced Diploma in Horticulture (NURSERY)" . May I have more information ? As: how long it's the course ? I saw it's 1200 h but I mean can I learn and have the test quick then that (I know some of the courses ,has the tests only in Feb and Jun)? May I split the cost of the course ? How ? Location of the examens (I live in Newent ; Gloucestershire) ? Should I pay extra for the tests ? I looking forward to see the answers . Regards. Mike.
( 25/09/2013 ) A: Hello Mihail, This is not an RHS course which means you can take your tests whenever you are ready. It is 1200 hours of self paced study which means you can do it as fast as you like. For example if you put aside 30 hours a week to study, you would be finished within 10 months. You may go on a payment plan for the course, our higher advanced diplomas start from £325.00 per month. You can call 01227 789649 to arrange your payment plan. For any exams, and some of your modules will end with a project, not an exam, you can do it through distance learning still. There is no extra charge for this, once you pay for your course, that's it. If you have any more questions, you can always email
