Study at Aberdeen Altens Campus
Don’t take our word for it! Find out what our students think about studying at NESCol.
Mechanical Manufacturing Engineering
“So I had a rethink and chose to go to College and get back to a more practical course. I completed the Performing Engineering Operations courses in Manufacturing and then I was offered a CNC manufacturing apprenticeship with Baker Hughes.”
Mechanical Manufacturing Engineering
“I knew I would get the chance to gain valuable work experience and get paid at the same time, and as MAs are funded by Skills Development Scotland it meant I could avoid a student loan.”
FA Hospitality with Events
“College is different to school, it’s a lot closer to real life experience, and I’ve really enjoyed my time at NESCol.”
FA Social Services & Healthcare
“I think the course has been a great preparation for the jump from school to university. “
Engineering Technical Support
“I am delighted that I have achieved my apprenticeship – it was important to me to gain a work-based qualification.”
Business and Administration, Level 6
“The apprenticeship to me gave me a chance to consolidate my knowledge – applying the theoretical learning to a real work based situation which makes so much more sense to me.“
“I think apprenticeships are the best way to go. They give you the opportunity to gain a great foundation and it’s worked really well for me.”
Sound Production School
“I would say that anyone who has a passion for music would gain lots from this course – you don’t need prior knowledge of the various techniques.”
National 5 Maths
“I’m taking a distance learning college course at the age of 40 to achieve the qualifications I’m capable of.”
DFN Project Search
“If you feel like your anxiety is really bad or if you have a disability, don’t let that bring you down. If you don’t try, you’ll never know! I might be deaf, but because you’ve got disabilities it doesn’t make you different to anybody else.”
