George ButlerGraduated: BSc (Hons) Horticulture

Why did you choose to study at Writtle University College?
I think the other main factor was Writtle’s history of catering for students just like me looking to succeed in the Horticultural industry. Most importantly it was Writtle’s specialisation and focus in horticulture that made me want to study there.
What does Writtle University College mean to you?
The closeness and intimacy of Writtle made me feel part of something as oppose to a number or statistic like larger universities. The on-campus residences made it feel like home.
The sport involvement played a huge part in my time at Writtle as well. It enabled me to make great friends and be part of Writtle’s successful sporting history.
What did you particularly enjoy about your course?
I also enjoyed the hands on approach to many of my subjects, getting out and doing the practical side of learning, most notably trips away into London, RHS Wisley etc. That’s where I was able to put my knowledge into practise. They gave me inspiration for when I left to further my experiences.
