The College delivers professional skills training for those aiming for a career in this thriving profession and we are fortunate to have many of Australia’s leading designers and landscape experts teaching for us.

The London College of Garden Design has rewritten the way that garden design is taught and is now widely regarded as Europe’s leading provider of garden design training. Based in London’s world-renowned Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew its garden design diplomas are recognised by the UK’s main industry bodies as well as the Royal Horticultural Society. That training experience together with our Australian design flair is now available in Melbourne and online.

Our Garden Design Program is delivered at the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria, Melbourne Gardens in a brand-new teaching facility. Over 4 semesters you will learn the essential skills to become a professional garden designer. A new two-year course starts each March and as well as being based in the classroom you can also opt for real-time online training from anywhere in Australia or New Zealand.
