About Fraserburgh Campus
A variety of subjects are studied at Fraserburgh Campus, with many different full-time and part-time options. Art, floristry, business, engineering, science, welding and care are just a few of the different subjects you can choose from!
Fraserburgh Campus is well served by public transport links, with regular buses to and from the area. Student, visitor and staff parking is available on campus, and via on-street parking close by.
The College provides buses to our Fraserburgh Campus operating from a number of locations including Buckie, Ellon, Huntly, Inverurie, Peterhead and Turriff. These services run subject to demand, and therefore may change from time to time. Please check if a service is running in your area before your course starts – if in doubt, you can call the College for an update.
Please note that a charge is made for bus transport unless you are in receipt of a bursary and meet the conditions required for travelling expenses. In this case your transport will be funded from your bursary.
Face coverings should be worn while travelling on our transport unless an exemption applies.

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”
