- NC in Horticulture with Landscape Construction & Design (SCQF Level 5)
- HNC in Landscape Management (SCQF Level 7)
Landscaping, the design, construction and maintenance of gardens, parks and open spaces, is an industry which has expanded ramatically in recent years and one which has increased in importance with the growing emphasis on leisure and amenity activities.
It is an industry which demands people with a range of skills including surveying, planning, design, and construction, plus a knowledge of horticulture. SRUC Oatridge Campus courses provide the practical experience and technical understanding needed to become a craftsman, supervisor or manager.
The campus has well-equipped workshops and a purposebuilt area for learning brickwork skills, as well as a dedicated drawing area for practising design skills.
Extensive use is also made of off-campus sites to widen students' knowledge, with visits arranged to building suppliers' yards, quarries and brickworks, garden centres and botanical gardens. Landscaping students frequently join their horticultural colleagues in carrying out community projects and have also shared many successes at Gardening Scotland, the country's major garden show.
