Detailed information

Study the Science of Plants at Home
Learn the Science of Plants, plant structure and plant growth; through self paced home study.

The course contains the basis of plant science, and is an introduction to plant physiology and taxonomy, covering general botany including morphology and anatomy. Lessons cover: taxonomic classification of plants; cells and tissues; specific vegetative parts of a plant; flowers and fruit; seed and the developing embryo; photosynthesis and growing plants; respiration; the role of water; movement of water and assimilates through a plant; the effects of growth movements.

ACS Distance Education stands out from other Vocational Training Colleges. The following points show why:-
- Our graduates are extremely successful.
- All our courses are unique (and to be successful in today's need to be unique… doing a standard course that is taught by many different colleges may in fact restrict your opportunities for employment.
- Our standards have not been degraded in recent years, like many other colleges.
- Flexibility – you can study when and where you want, choose what to study, mix and match an extremely wide range of modules in a way to suit you.
- Tutors are highly qualified and experienced - more so than for most other colleges (our minimum requirements for tutors are set higher than some other vocational colleges.
- Service to students is more immediate than at other colleges – Tutors are on duty 5 days a week – on call as you need them, this type of service is virtually unheard of elsewhere.
