“The course was absolutely fantastic and the facilities they have at City Campus are excellent. ” – Roberto Bellini
“I learned so much both in terms of theory and practical skills and the fact that I’ve already found related employment is great. “ – Jack Gordon
“I think College is an excellent next step as although you have moved on from school and enjoy learning in an adult environment, the class sizes are still small so you really get to know your fellow students. I just felt so much better prepared for Uni having been at College. I don’t know if I would have stuck it out if I’d gone there straight from school to be honest as it is quite a big jump. My NESCol experience undoubtedly gave me the confidence to manage the demands of the degree.”
“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.”
“I would 100% recommend NESCol. First and foremost for the obvious academic reasons and achieving a qualification. But also for being a stepping stone to lead to other opportunities, professionally and personally. It’s an environment where you’re supported and encouraged to make your own success. With the right attitude and the help of the staff and your peers, you can make that happen. “
“The lecturers are genuine professionals and have endless experience within the industry. They also come from quite impressive backgrounds which is inspiring. Also, I must say, the college doesn’t hold back when it comes to buying the best equipment – it’s actually as good as the equipment I work with now.”
“I will always cherish my time at North East Scotland College. Over two years I was introduced to the key skills behind the production of Film and Television; skills that I still use and value to this day, such as camera operation and video editing. We received great mentorship from our lecturers, all of whom were experienced in their field and highly knowledgeable. The course really encouraged your creativity, getting to create short films, music videos and even a multi-camera live show, on a weekly basis. It was a lot of fun.”
“This course will benefit you in more ways than one and the lecturers are some of the best people you’ll get to meet.”
“I have grown as a person. I loved my time at NESCol, being around like-minded people, collaborating with them and focusing on my passion.”
“The HND is an excellent hands-on grounding in Media & Communications and has taught me so much about the industry. As well as learning the theory, the course allows you to gain practical experience which is invaluable for progressing your career.”
