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.
*Please note that due to road closures in Ellon, the Market Street pick up will be replaced by a temporary bus stop on Station Road.
Face coverings should be worn while travelling on our transport unless an exemption applies.

Study at Fraserburgh Campus
Don’t take our word for it! Find out what our students think about studying at NESCol.
HND Digital Design & Development (Web Development)
“I enjoy Computing because it’s such a broad field. There’s a variety of skills to learn and you can easily develop a niche. No two projects will be the same and since it’s such a fast-paced field, there are always new developments to keep abreast of.
“The computing courses give you lots of practical skills and a strong foundation to expand upon.”
HND Social Sciences
“NESCol really prepared me for the step up to university. I would definitely recommend college if you don’t feel ready to go straight to university when you leave school.”
HND Applied Science
“I’m really glad I did the 2 + 2 Degree link with NESCol as I found myself well prepared with my lab techniques. Last year we had a practical research methods module and I found that a lot of the skills I learnt during my time at College were applicable and really helped me. I achieved an A grade for the unit and I attribute that to my time at NESCol. “
Hair, Beauty & Complementary Therapies
Body & Spa Therapies (VRQ Level 3 Diploma in Body & Spa Techniques)
“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. “
Art, Design & Photography
HND Fashion & Textiles
“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. “
Music, Sound Production & Drama
HND Acting and Performance
“If it wasn’t for College I wouldn’t have the confidence that I have now to market myself as an actor. I am the product so it’s a different kind of confidence that, I think, you need for yourself. College was definitely the first stepping stone for me – to take charge of my own career, to take the lead, make my own decisions with support and guidance from my tutors.”
Sport, Fitness & Uniformed Services
Entry to Uniformed Services – Level 2 Diploma
“The air cadets boosted my passion for joining a service, and College gave me the confidence to grow as a person and develop my social skills in an environment where I felt I could thrive. It’s important to push yourself – you may surprise yourself by how much you can actually achieve.”
Merchant Navy Deck Officer Cadet programme
“The thought of a career where I can travel and see the world really appeals. After completing the programme I will be qualified as a Deck Officer and with sea time and further studying I can hopefully progress to Chief Officer and eventually Captain.”
Merchant Navy Deck Officer Cadet programme
“Once I’m qualified my aim is to be a Captain of a construction vessel in the renewables sector, or Captain of a platform supply vessel. I suppose the dream is to just push myself to be the best I can be.”
Qualification for Work: Hospitality
“It’s one of the best decisions I have ever made to continue at College. Lecturers and my classmates have helped me come out of my shell and the leadership skills that are taught on my course have helped me enormously – I feel better about myself.”
