Study Agriculture, Horticulture & Floristry at SIT

Agriculture

If you're in agriculture, you're in business. For students wishing to make a start on an agricultural career, the Vocational Pathways Primary Industries programme offers a good opportunity to gain sound practical foundation skills and knowledge in agriculture.

SIT's NZ Diploma in Agribusiness Management is offered via SIT2LRN distance learning and gives a foundation in core business skills such as business planning, financial management, HR, resource management and sustainability and reporting and the material is tailored to the specific requirements of the agricultural sector.

Horticulture and Landscape Design

If plants are your passion, then our range of horticulture programmes will develop your skill and equip you with industry recognised qualifications which combine theoretical knowledge and practical application.

Career opportunities for graduates include roles such as farming, gardening, organic horticulturalist, grower or landscaper.

Floristry

Turn your love of art and flowers into a flourishing career. Floristry covers topics from the conditioning and preparation of products to handling, care, and customer service skills. The material cost for the course covers all the flowers and materials used to design products such as flower arrangements, corsages, hand-tied bouquets, posies and floral gifts.

Gaining an industry recognised Floristry qualification from SIT opens up opportunities to work in floristry retail, at hotels and event venues, on staff in major corporate and government organisations, or as a business owner.

SIT also offers evening courses in Floral Design for people who would like a 'taster' course to gain confidence with the art of floristry.
