About Us - North East Scotland College
North East Scotland College was formed in 2013 following the merger of Aberdeen College and Banff and Buchan College. It is one of Scotland’s largest colleges, and is the biggest provider of vocational education training in the North East of Scotland. Across three Aberdeen-based campuses and one in Fraserburgh, as well as several learning centres across Aberdeenshire, NESCol provides high quality full-time and part-time education in a supportive learning environment. NESCol students are offered the opportunity to learn using state-of-the-art facilities and industry standard equipment across subject areas. In addition to maintaining our highly responsive service to our students, we are able to provide a richer offer to employers by working in partnership with industry to ensure we are up-to-date with emerging business needs across all sectors. More courses, more choices, more opportunities!
