FEES for Higher Education Courses
Nescot has a national reputation for science higher education, particularly in Biomedical Science, Perfusion and Acoustics, and is also home to the Surrey Institute of Osteopathic Medicine. Our HNDs, Degrees and Masters are designed and taught by industry specialists with a large emphasis on clinical and industry placements, so you will learn the latest theories and techniques with the latest equipment, hardware and software.
Studying locally is proving increasingly popular as colleges continue to develop programmes of courses which meet their local communities' needs, whilst maintaining their national specialisms. Nescot's HE courses are also exceptionally competitively priced and we have experts in student finance on hand to ensure cost is no barrier to your learning.
We purposely keep our class sizes small, which makes for a friendly and caring environment and you will find you have far more access to your tutors than is usual. All our higher education students are allocated a personal tutor and, in addition to your lectures, tutorials are held on both an individual and a group basis.
One examiner recently commented that he thought the students on a Nescot Computing course would not have achieved so much in a larger university. 20% of our graduates achieved the highest classification for their award.
We also make every effort to offer our HE courses with part-time, flexible and evening study options, to fit in with work and home commitments.
Many of our HNC, HND and Foundation Degree students stay on for another year to 'top up' their qualification to a full degree. Often referred to as a 2+1, this option offers a truly industry focused and practical degree, valued by employers, together with flexibility and choice if you do not feel able to commit to a three-year programme of study at the moment.
Whichever you choose, you can be confident that taking your education further with Nescot College will give you the tools to dramatically improve your career prospects.
OFFA (Office for Fair Access) require Nescot to publish an access agreement. An access agreement is a document setting out how a university or college charging higher fees intends to safeguard and promote fair access to higher education through its outreach work, financial support etc. It also includes targets and milestones, set by the university/college itself. You can find Nescot's Access Agreement by clicking here: Access Agreement
