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.
Osteopathy at Nescot
Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions. It is based on the principle that the well-being of an individual depends on the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues functioning smoothly together. In the UK Osteopathy is an allied healthcare profession regulated by the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC), an organisation with worldwide recognition.
Osteopaths work in many different areas including private practice, paediatrics, sports and the arts. Click here to hear from Osteopaths working in different arenas.
Once you have qualified with one of our four-year degrees you can register as a practicing Osteopath with the GOsC. You can then work as an osteopath in a clinic, the NHS or set up your own practice (we also teach you the practicalities of running your own business). Osteopaths work all over the world and it is currently one the fastest-growing professions in Australia.
The International College of Osteopathic Medicine (ICOM) at Nescot is a leading provider of osteopathic education. We have been offering professional osteopathy training for more than 20 years.
Our onsite teaching clinic has more than 3000 patient appointments per year and it is staffed by highly-qualified tutors who supervise the students in assessing and treating patients. In our clinic our students encounter patients of all ages and lifestyles as well as getting the opportunity to work in specialist areas such as paediatrics and sports injuries.
Our Osteopathy students are a mix of younger and mature students, with many of the latter having come to Osteopathy as a career change later in life.
We also offer a Foundation Course for potential applicants who have proven academic achievement but lack a solid grounding in health related science.
