Whilst we are close to both Epsom and South/West London students also benefit from a green and leafy campus.

Business at Nescot
We are committed to teaching you more than just the theory of Business. Our teachers will help prepare you for a successful career.
Business students have won Best Trade Stand, Best eAdvert and Best Company in the North Surrey Young Enterprise Company Programme Competition.
What You Can Expect…
Nescot Level 3 Business students compete in the Young Enterprise Company Programme where they set up their own businesses by raising funds and investing in shares, design and seek manufacturers to make and supply their products, then sell these to the local community for a profit they share at the end of the academic year, when they liquidate their company.
You will not only learn the rules and skills you need for the business world, but will be given the tools to turn from a student into a business professional.
We regularly have guest speakers in to talk to students about their experiences in the business world.
Every one of our students will research, target, apply for, and spend at least a week doing meaningful work experience in an area they find exciting and relevant.
We treat our students as adults and encourage them to take responsibility and pride in their assignments, behaviour, professional conduct and appearance.
You will also take part in organising events for some of your units.
The department has excellent teaching rooms and IT suites, where you will learn to use the latest software and presentation techniques.
UK and international trips to look at real-life examples of business functions like sales and marketing. Previous trips have included visiting Barcelona, Milan, Thorpe Park, Fragrance Company, Westfield Shopping Centre and Mayfield Lavender.
“The best part was the Young Enterprise project, where we set up a business and ran it ourselves. It was a great opportunity to put what we’d learnt into practice. I’m going to the University of East London next year to study Law, and then I’ll train as a solicitor specialising in equality in the workplace.”
