On the 1st November 2013,
Aberdeen College and Banff &
Buchan College merged to form
North East Scotland College.

The new North East Scotland College (NESCOL)
now serves an extensive geographical area with its
main centres of delivery in Aberdeen and Fraserburgh
as well as learning centres in Ellon, Macduff, Inverurie
and the Scottish Maritime Academy in Peterhead.

The two Colleges, for many years, shared a commitment
to provide the best opportunities for the people of
Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire and had worked
together on numerous projects and initiatives to fulfil
that commitment. We now truly believe, as a single
institution, we will be even better placed to do just that.

By merging, North East Scotland College now has
the opportunity to combine expertise, facilities and
resources in a way that best serves the region.

In this first NESCOL Part-time Guide, we have not only
combined the Part-time courses traditionally offered
by both institutions, but have enriched the curriculum
offer in the community that we serve.

Thank you for choosing
North East Scotland College.
