uc parents guide Sept 2015 coverAt Uxbridge College we want you to be involved in your son or daughter's studies. It is important that you are informed and support them at this critical stage in their life. We know that there is more to choosing a course than simply picking a subject. A young person's choice with regard to their future studies is part of a bigger decision about their career. Please click here for a copy of our Guide for Parents, Guardians and Carers.
