“When I first came to the College I did not speak English and was not very confident. However, after being here for over three years my English has improved and I am now confident when speaking with others. The Learning Resource Centre is excellent as you can find any book you want in your own language - it is also a great quiet area to study.”

“I can say that my life was transformed when I decided to study an English course - here at Uxbridge! Considering the quality and price, I had such good luck when I discovered Uxbridge College. Now my English is getting better and better. I have got two great teachers - I’m so pleased with both of them.”
