Whilst we are close to both Epsom and South/West London students also benefit from a green and leafy campus. We’ve been providing Further Education for school leavers at Nescot for more than 60 years.

“The course is really practical and varied, and we also do a lot of work experience, which is a great way to develop yourself and find out which career would suit you. I’m starting a Paramedic Science degree at St George’s University in September, and I couldn’t have done that without Nescot.”
