“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.”
“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.”
“I didn’t really enjoy the subjects I learned at school, so I think the best part of studying at college was being able to choose what I wanted to study. I was able to gain knowledge in something I was extremely passionate about which made a huge difference.”
“The lecturers have got such diverse photography experience and they love sharing their own experience and work they’ve done… We really get a chance to sample all aspects of photography at NESCol. I also really like the facilities. The college has got their own studios, they’ve got so much different equipment, and they’ve got a dark room. So I get to experience all those things without buying the equipment.”
“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. “
“I am really enjoying experimenting with mixed media especially textiles”
“I had a fantastic experience at college, I would return tomorrow if I could. The best thing for me was the support. The lecturers are fantastic.”
“I never thought I would enjoy education, but college changed that. It kept me focused and let me freely practice what I loved. The facilities at the college are next level, and allow students to fully conduct their own professional shoots.”
“I loved the course. One of the highlights for me was doing a fashion show at the Maritime Museum in Aberdeen. It was brilliant! the atmosphere was great.”
“I have always loved photography, and NESCol has really helped me develop my skills and boost my confidence.”
