Turn your interest in plants into a career. Tai Poutini Polytechnic in association with the Open Polytechnic of New Zealand (OPNZ) has a horticulture programme that can help you get started.
This new programme will get your green fingers working whether you want to grow vegetables at home or pursue a career on the land.
You might want to move on to study landscape design, become an arborist, get started in the nursery or fruit and vegetable growing industries, or simply learn a little more about your own backyard garden. Whatever you want to achieve, the NZ Certificate in Horticulture help start you on your journey.
The programme is available in both Westport and Greymouth and, with flexible learning available, part-time options and a blended mix of class and online study, (plus all the benefits of campus facilities and support) you can make your study suit your lifestyle.
20 Weeks Full-time
