“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. “
“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.”
“I’ve been so surprised by the meditative qualities of working with wood and it’s such an antidote to digital life.”
“The evening class was a revelation. I never dreamt of a different career path but I just got completely hooked!”
“Anyone can do the course – it’s great for anyone who wants to learn something new for themselves.”
“I’ve really enjoyed everything about the course. I wasn’t really sure what to expect when I first started because it had been a long time since I had been in education, but since coming back to College I’ve really enjoyed learning all of the subjects – even the ones that are more difficult.”
“NEScol is an enriching learning environment where staff go above and beyond to ensure you experience great learning and understanding and also support YOU as an individual, encouraging you work to your full potential and achieve great things.”
“NESCol was a stepping–stone for me. It was calm, the course was paced evenly and the support I got was phenomenal. There was always help available. It prepared us for progressing into 2nd year in RGU.”
“The lecturers are really helpful and understanding, and all of the people in my class get on really well.”
“NESCol is the place that restored my faith in the education system and I was very fortunate to form great relationships, making friends for life and learning from lecturers that could see my passion and believed in me!”
