I am applying for a place on one of the RHS Level 2 Certification courses at Capel Manor College and will be travelling from Stratford in East London which is pretty well connected to all four college campuses.
I just wondered if anyone has studied at Capel Manor before and as a 33 year old who is looking to change their career from architecture and marketing to Garden Design I am curious to know whether one of the 4 campuses would be better suited to my interests and learning?
I have chosen to study RHS Certificates as I already have design knowledge and CAD skills but I am really keen to learn as much as I can about horticulture so that I can gain confidence in working with plants in nature and space.
Currently my specific interests are in amenity horticulture, in particular working with wildlife, growing food and the healing capacity in nature/gardens.
If anyone can offer advise or thoughts on their own personal experiences of studying at Capel Manor I would be really interested to hear.
