. Sometimes we are approached by prospective students who have some experiences in floral arrangement. However they have never taken any official lessons of floral designs. And they just wonder if they are happy with signing up for Fresh Flower Arrangement Elementary Course
. Namely self taught students can be happy with enrollment in the Elementary Course or not ?
According to the general rule of our school, those who have never taken any official lessons of floral arrangement are required to start with Elementary Course no matter which, European arrangement or Japanese Ikebana. They are kindly requested to sign up for Elementary Course. After starting taking lessons, if they find the contents of lessons are too elementary and too basic, we allow them to transfer from Elementary to Intermediate Course
. Small and reasonable adjustment on lesson fee will be made by our school.
There are various types of students who register for our school. Although the majority of students do not have any experience in floral designs, some of them already learned flower arrangement. Some limited number of people have experience not only on flower design education but also actual field job experience as a floral designer. In this kind of case, they MAY want to start from Intermediate Course (or Advanced Course) by skipping Elementary Course (and probably Intermediate Course as well). Of course from person to person the level of experience is different.
Depending on the level of each student's skill and experience, we decide the best solution. Before school makes a decision if or not the student qualifies to skip Elementary Course, students must express their wish of signing up for Intermediate Course (by skipping Elementary Course) OR transferring to Intermediate Course from Elementary Course. In any case, there should be discussion between us and student towards reasonable decision before enrollment. We offer a Wide Range of Programs
to satisfy a broad requirements from students. If you have no idea about the choice of program, why not join Introductory Trial Budget Program
