About Fraserburgh Campus
The bright and modern Fraserburgh Campus provides a fantastic environment for NESCol students, staff and visitors.
From the stunning atrium area to the purpose-built learning areas featuring industry standard equipment, the facilities support a diverse range of courses.
A variety of subjects are studied at Fraserburgh Campus, with a range of 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.
Deck Officer Cadet Programme (SCQF Level 7)
“All of the lecturers know their stuff – they are previous seagoers so they are not just teaching they are sharing.”
Trainee Deckhand and Deck Officer Cadet programme (SCQF Level 7)
“The Trainee Deckhand course has prepared me well for the first 17 weeks of training, I am actually surprised how much of the basics I already know.”
Art, Design & Photography
HND Visual Communication
“I’m a huge champion of the College and the value of practical courses they offer. My time there undoubtedly contributed to the career I have today and there is a large alumni of talented creatives working in agencies and freelance both locally, nationally and indeed globally who started out from NESCol.”
Sarah Jane McKay
HNC Childhood Practice
“I found studying at Fraserburgh campus very enjoyable, the staff motivated me to work hard and there were always plenty of opportunities to expand my learning and knowledge. When I first left school I had no confidence and doubted my abilities, NESCol changed that. “
HND Mechanical Engineering
“From juggling working full time, being at College and still having quality time with my daughter, it was challenging at times. Despite how hectic it was it made the experience even more worthwhile for me and the whole process was highly rewarding. “
Kelly Ann Denholm
Business & Management
“I loved the course and for the first time in my life felt properly challenged. It was strange at first when teaching went online but with the support of friends made on the course and the lecturers, we all got each other through.
Art, Design & Photography
“NESCol is a great college – it has a really relaxed atmosphere and is in a great location. It was so easy to get to after dropping my son off at nursery, and the lecturers are so encouraging and involved.”
HND Social Sciences
“My time at college helped me see that I actually wanted to study psychology at university rather than a more broad-based social sciences course. If I hadn’t gone to college first, I wouldn’t have had the chance to discover that so I’m really glad I had the opportunity to properly explore the subject area before making a final decision.”
HND Mechanical Engineering, SCQF Level 8
“My family were really supportive as it was quite challenging going back to College after a 12 year gap and I was also working shifts. It required a lot of dedication and commitment, but I got there!”
HNC Childhood Practice
“I had the life experience but not the right professional qualifications. To open the door to the big opportunities as an Early Years Practitioner I knew had to gain HNC Childhood Practice and then a degree – that’s when I applied to College.”
