About City Campus
Our Aberdeen City Campus is situated in the heart of Aberdeen city centre, within walking distance of shops, restaurants, bars and cafés. It also has excellent access to local and national transportation links such as rail and bus services. The building is modern and dynamic, with state-of-the-art learning facilities and a wide range of social areas available to all of our students. Recently the campus has undergone a change to its exterior, with a re-cladding project boosting the energy use efficiency of the campus – reducing carbon emissions, energy consumption and energy maintenance costs. The modern exterior now reflects the equally modern interior and state-of-the art facilities inside the building, offering a welcoming learning environment for all.
Aberdeen City Campus boasts a range of exciting learning and teaching facilities including a TV studio, training salons, training restaurant, computing labs, science labs, a basement studio theatre, art workrooms and more! You’ll also find no shortage of places to grab a coffee or something to eat, and can make the most of the comfortable, spacious social and study areas situated throughout.

Study at Aberdeen City Campus
Don’t take our word for it! Find out what our students think about studying at NESCol.
HNC Business, SCQF Level 7
“I’d like to stay within football but on the business side. I’m not 100% certain on that, that’s where I think the HNC in Business is great foundation.”
Joinery SCQF Level 5
“I’ve been so surprised by the meditative qualities of working with wood and it’s such an antidote to digital life.”
Sport and Exercise Massage, Introductory followed by SCQF Level 6
“The evening class was a revelation. I never dreamt of a different career path but I just got completely hooked!”
Introduction to Manicure
“Anyone can do the course – it’s great for anyone who wants to learn something new for themselves.”
Preparation for Work
“I thought I was coming to college for education, but I got so much more than that: friendships, support, independence, guidance and a push when I needed it. I have had such an amazing journey here.”
Shell Engineering Scheme
“Teaching was always something I was interested in but it was important to me to get industry experience first. I was delighted when the lecturing opportunity came up at NESCol and I am now really enjoying my time back at College but on the other side of the fence!”
Business & Management
HND Advertising & PR
“The course provides you the skills to communicate whatever it is that you’re trying to sell. It’s been fantastic. It gives you a really supportive environment – especially if you are coming back into the world of education from work. That’s the route that I took and it’s been really fantastic in that regard. But if you’re a school leaver as well, College gives you practical skills alongside the theory that you’re learning, so even if you decide not to go to uni, you’ve got those skills there and you can utilise them to go into work. It’s really, really valuable in that way.”
Music, Sound Production & Drama
HND Acting & Performance
“The lecturers are industry experienced and maintain a high standard which really gives you that extra push you need as a school leaver. My lecturers went above and beyond to help me in any way they could and I know that they still would today.”
HND Social Sciences
“I found my time at college to be the perfect link between leaving school and starting university. The course was interesting, the assessments were rigorous and gave me the skills to work alone, as well as part of a group, which served me well at university. The lecturers were engaging and treated students as adults which created a good atmosphere for learning.”
Business & Management
“I’m so pleased that I had the courage to return to College, it’s opened so many doors for me”
