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.

“I think my story shows the diversity a career in Beauty Therapy can offer. Not only can it allow you to travel, work anywhere in the world, but also give you the choice to work in an established salon or set up your own business and become your own boss. The opportunities are endless. It’s such a fun, rewarding career and the job satisfaction from making your client feel better about themselves is priceless. “

“I was so nervous about starting College and felt uncertain about my abilities but NESCol completely changed that. I loved the course, learned so much from my lecturers and it gave me a new found confidence. It’s not easy at times being a busy Mum and juggling study but I have proven I can do it. When I started at NESCol I would never have believed I’d end up studying at a prestigious art school and firmly believe that my time at College has given me an advantage in coping with the demands of a degree. I’d say to any parents out there who feel they want a second chance at education to go for it and grab the opportunity with both hands, it really can change your life. “
