Your Induction

Important information about your induction session at NESCol.

Planning for the new academic year here at NESCol is well underway. Our full-time courses begin w/c 29 August and applicants will receive their individual timetable earlier that month but your first visit on campus will take place the week before, between Monday 22 and Friday 26 August.   You will be given a day and time to come along to your chosen campus, have a tour, meet staff from your subject area and receive a course induction so that you are all set and ready to get started the following week.  Further information on your ‘Welcome to NESCol’ visit will be sent to you soon.  You will also have access to an online course containing lots of essential information about studying at NESCol which you refer back to at any point during your studies.

If you are looking for some additional guidance and support before starting your NESCol story in August, we are happy to announce the launch of a series of ‘Welcome’ sessions over the summer which will take place across our three main campuses – Aberdeen Altens, Aberdeen City and Fraserburgh, as well as online. These sessions are an excellent opportunity for you to come onto campus and meet with support staff who will be happy to help you with a range of activities, including help applying for funding and with digital skills to information on our library and student support services.  Further information on these and how to book your place will be sent to applicants with conditional and full offers by email.

Online Enrolment

Enrolment will take place online, during July and August for full-time courses. You will receive an email with step by step  instructions when you have a *full offer from us and curriculum teams have assigned you to a particular group for the course you have applied for. Once you have enrolled you will gain access to MyNescol, our student intranet (where you can check your timetable) and Blackboard, our VLE as well as Microsoft 365.

*If you currently have a conditional offer, this will be upgraded to full once we have received evidence that you have met your conditions e.g. SQA exam results.
