Nescot is in Ewell near Epsom in Surrey. We are a few minutes’ walk from Ewell East and Ewell West main line stations. Whilst we are close to both Epsom and South/West London students also benefit from a green and leafy campus. We’ve been providing Higher Education at Nescot for more than 60 years.
Animal Management at Nescot
Nescot is one of the very few colleges within travelling distance of London to offer a Higher Education course in Animal Management. Animal and land-based careers are enjoying unprecedented growth in the UK and people are actively being sought to fill skills shortages.
The college has devoted more than half of its campus to a modern City Farm and Nescot is now using its years of experience working within the land-based industry to offer a Foundation Degree.
This curriculum area has a dynamic, dedicated, enthusiastic team of lecturers who are highly respected by our students. Our members of staff are all qualified teachers who have both vocational and academic experience and they are qualified to degree or Masters Level. They also have extensive practical work experience within the industry, both national and international, and they use this to provide students with industry-appropriate knowledge and skills.
We also provide animal care courses at levels 1, 2 and 3 and these have provided a strong progression route for students in the past. In our animal facility we have a wide range of small animals, reptiles and amphibians, both domestic and exotic. Our farm maintains a varied range of livestock animals including cows, horses, donkeys, sheep, goats and pigs.
