We’ve been providing Higher Education at Nescot for more than 60 years. Here are some of the reasons our students choose us:

Expert teaching
Our friendly lecturers and tutors are dedicated to helping you reach your full potential. Our staff are experienced tutors, but also have substantial experience of working in the relevant industry, too, so you can understand what your future career could be like. Our students also value being taught in smaller groups, rather than attending large lectures.

According to the 2016 National Student Survey, Higher Education students at Nescot were among the most satisfied in the country. A total of 88% of those questioned were satisfied with their course.

Our degrees are validated by the Universities of Greenwich, Kingston and West London and Pearson is one of our awarding bodies.

Our qualifications are accredited by a number of Professional, Statutory and Regulatory Bodies (PSRBs). These include the GOsC (Osteopathy), the BACP (Counselling) and the CIEH (Environmental Health).

Financial Support
Nescot has a dedicated team to help you navigate student finance. Our expert staff can advise you on support you might be eligible for, from loans to grants and bursaries. In addition, Nescot’s fees are usually lower than for comparable courses at universities.

Our Campus

We’ve invested £52 million in our campus since 2013, giving you access to great facilities. Whatever you study, you’ll be able to take advantage of brand-new onsite facilities like our newly refurbished gym, hair and beauty salon, refectory, day nursery, library, theatre, free distance learning courses and our osteopathy and sports injury clinics. We also have our new Business Centre that can help put you in touch with employers. In addition, students on courses validated by Kingston University can access their library, sports clubs and societies.

Epsom and Ewell

We think our borough is a great place to study. It’s also a great place to make your home, and to start or relaunch your career. Epsom and Ewell has something for everyone, and was ranked as the seventh happiest place to live in England in 2017. Epsom is a lively town with a shopping centre, restaurants, bars, pubs, nightclubs and a theatre, while Ewell is a quiet and picturesque village. The borough has plenty of green open spaces, from the compact and historic Bourne Hall in Ewell to the 250-acre Nonsuch Park on the borough’s borders.

Epsom is also host to the famous Derby, billed as the world’s greatest flat race, which has been a fixture of the horse racing calendar since the inaugural race in 1780. The two-day racing festival of The Oaks and The Derby attracts over 150,000 people to the racecourse. There’s also a popular summer programme of affordable evening racing and music and, even when there isn’t any racing, the Downs are a beautiful open space to walk, ride and picnic.

Although we’re in a ‘village’ setting we also have modern amenities within walking distance including a hypermarket, cafes, pubs and retail outlets. Central London is only forty minutes by direct train from nearby Ewell East station. Other towns and boroughs like Guildford, Wimbledon and Croydon are also easily accessed from both of our nearby train stations.

Surrey is also a very safe part of the country. Out of the thirty-nine policing areas in England, Surrey has the sixth lowest rate of crime per head of population (2018). In Epsom and Ewell especially there is a strong sense of community and security with many local residents’ associations and neighbourhood groups.

We think you’ll like it round here, by all means join us at one of our many open events and have a look around the area.
