The Kew International Diploma Course in Botanic Garden Management 1 July – 23 August 2013.

16 January 2013

There are still some places  available on this course but we expect to fill them shortly. The formal closing date for completed applications with evidence of funding/sponsorship is 1 April, however any applications should be sent in as soon as possible to make sure of a place.

Sometimes candidates postpone sending in an application while they look for, or wait for news of, possible sponsorship/funding. Applications can however be accepted with only potential or no sponsorship evident. Funding details can be worked on after the application is in, so do not risk losing a place by holding back . If you or your institution is considering making use of this offer please ensure that a formal application form is submitted soon.

The course is primarily targeted at people who are actively involved in the management of a botanic garden or arboretum, with some operational and strategic responsibilities as well as supervising horticultural activities.
