Why I Chose McQueens Flower School

It is an honour and a wonderful privilege to share our passion for flowers with students around the world and to impart our considerable knowledge that has been gathered over the two decades that McQueens Flower School has been in existence.  Our vocational courses run central to the curriculum at McQueens Flower School, and many of our students have an interest in setting up a business or working within the industry after completing one of our courses. We have various options for our courses from one-week classes that focus on individual areas of contemporary flower design, to our four-week vocational course and one that attracts students from around the world. We asked a selection of graduates from our courses why they chose to study at McQueens Flower School.

‘I chose McQueens School because I love the contemporary style. I have been to other schools but my experience at McQueens stood out. It was amazing. For me, it’s a career-changing experience and my takeaway is a complete change of perspective in terms of my style and choices of flowers. It has opened my eyes to the endless possibilities that floristry has to offer’

‘I chose McQueens Flower School because I wanted to work on large design work. I am from Korea and I was inspired by the images I saw on social media. I really enjoyed the classes and the designs we created as a team were my favourite. We worked with so many different flower varieties. The course was very inspirational’

I’ve always wanted to become a florist and recently I gave up my job and came to the UK to follow my passion for flowers. Throughout the course, I learned so much, it’s been an amazing experience, but I have also met some great talented florists as well.’
