“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.”
“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 mentoring from our lecturers, all of whom were experienced in their field and highly knowledgeable.”
“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.”
“My time at college really helped me grow. It gave me the foundation on which to continue building skills and confidence.”
“I was advised that the best course to get me started was the Performing Engineering Operations Level 2 – Electrical. 80% of it is based in the workshop learning practical skills – and this is how I learn.”
“I’ve now been Guitar Technician with Blossoms for about two-and-a-half years. This, along with some more networking, has helped me pick up work with Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Frank Carter, Shed Seven, Two Door Cinema Club and even Gerry Cinnamon!”
