Why study with us?

We offer a specialist portfolio of higher education courses, ranging from Plant Science to Sustainable Festival Management. For a full list of programmes, please visit our course information pages.

Eden’s world famous architecture, gardens, exhibitions, and the Eden sessions, coupled with Eden’s specialist plant collections, growing facilities, dedicated laboratory and design studio, together provide a world-class study platform.

A diverse team of subject specialists support students in their studies, many of whom partner private practice with their teaching commitments, ensuring a contextualised learning experience which prepares students for industry or a career in academia.  

Student experience

Our students come from all walks of life, creating a diverse and exciting learning environment. Many continue to work alongside their studies or have family commitments, so as well as our full-time courses, we offer flexible and part-time options for many of our programmes.

Most of our courses are based at the Eden Project, where students have the opportunity to roam the outdoor gardens, relax to birdsong in the Mediterranean Biome, or explore the tropical biome whenever they need some respite or inspiration throughout the day. For those re-locating to study with us, we have a dedicated accommodation officer who can help students find somewhere to live close-by.

Outside of study-time, there’s the beautiful county of Cornwall to explore. From its famous sandy beaches to its great gardens, cultural landscapes and picturesque towns and villages, it truly is an inspiring place to learn.


'I came to Eden with a passion for horticulture and garden design with big gaps in my knowledge. My tutors were brilliant, and the course gave me both a great education and the technical ability to go into the profession with confidence.'
Freddie Strickland (HND Garden & Landscape Design, graduated 2019)
