Your Future

NESCol is the gateway to a world of opportunity and we are here to support you every step of the way, from university progression to exciting new careers

Your achievements at College open up a range of options when it is time to take that important next step.

Articulation arrangements with RGU, the University of Aberdeen and universities across Scotland mean you can progress to year two or year three of university on successful completion of your HND or, in some cases, HNC.

We work closely with partner universities to offer well established pathways and align courses to provide a smooth transition – with more than 50 pathways from NESCol to RGU alone!
