Our students are at the heart of what we do and our priority is to prepare them for a fantastic future so they can achieve their full potential. As a well-established and solid college with consistent results, our diverse students thrive with the support and facilities we offer. They go on to great things, getting good jobs and going on to university or further study. This year 834 students from our A Level and vocational career-focused study programmes progressed to university. Many went to their first-choice institution plus there were a number of students with high tariff points who won places at Russell Group universities.

Vocational Career-Focused Courses
Our vocational courses are planned with employment in mind and we help our students to become work-ready through high-quality work experience placements. We have links with local and national employers which enhances the curriculum with employer-branded assignments, live briefs, on-site visits, workshops and guest speakers from industry.
Students study their main qualification alongside English and maths (at the appropriate level), employability skills and topics to encourage their academic and personal development. Students progress onto higher level courses, go on to university and into jobs after studying with us.
As the largest College provider of apprenticeships in west London, West Met Skills grew out of the long-standing and successful Employer Services teams at Uxbridge College and Harrow College following the legal merger of the two colleges to create HCUC (Harrow College Uxbridge College). As well as providing a full range of apprenticeships and other skills-based training, the organisation matches trainees and candidates to existing vacancies. West Met Skills works with over 700 apprentices and 1200 employers at any given time.
Our apprentices have been regularly shortlisted for the West London Business Apprentice of the Year award.
We deliver high-quality HNC and HND courses which build on existing knowledge and skills, so students can gain a qualification after one or two years of study, which can be topped up for a degree. Our higher education courses were successfully reviewed in March 2017 by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education, who safeguard standards and improve the quality of higher education in the UK. The review had confidence that our academic standards are reliable and meet UK requirements.
At Uxbridge College students are at the heart of what we do - we create opportunities, we create success and we create futures. We provide the skills you need to study higher education at college or at university. Last year 814 students went to university – click here to find out what universities our students progressed.
