Starting in October 2006 the students from the Deaf and Dumb Institute in Warsaw are doing some practical training in Glasshouse Experiment Centre.

Practical professional training for the students in Landscape Architecture is programmed for 8 weeks. Undergraduate (1st step) students including the extramural students can start their practical training after completing 3rd semester and they can continue the work in the time when they have no courses, including holidays according to the rules for practical training and to the local rules in the place where they do their training. The practical training should be completed at the end of 6th semester. The practical training is carried mostly in administration units of the voivodships and counties, in the city horticultural enterprises,in the city parks and gardens and in the firms working in the area of green space planning and construction. The practical training for the students in General Horticulture is designed as follows: 4 weeks practical training in the Departments or Sections of the Faculty after completing 2nd semester and 5 months of practical training during 6th semester; 3 months of these 5 have to be conducted in the WULS experiment farms, while 2 other months can be conducted in approved horticultural farms in Poland or abroad. Faculty of Horticulture, Biotechnology and Landscape Architecture has been co-operating since several years with horticultural farms in Germany, England and Norway. The participation in EU Leonardo da Vinci programme may also be recognized as a part of practical training. Extramural students conduct their professional practical training after completing 6th semester in private horticultural farms (approved by the Deputy Dean for Students) or in the experiment units of the Faculty.
