This year the college’s February start offering includes a new course Get Ready for College being offered at both Aberdeen City and Fraserburgh campuses.

This is an opportunity for those who are unsure where their interests lie to get a taster of NESCol life and prepare them for study in a subject area of their choice after the summer break.
