HRISTINA

The warm and welcoming environment in Uxbridge College, is what drew me to it. I feel safe and comfortable in the College. It has not only supported my educational development but also my social abilities and workplace skills. The staff’s support and encouragement has made my course more enjoyable. I have learned a lot by interacting with people in the field, through my work experience placement and increased my employability skills. I would strongly recommend the college to any student with big aspirations and a wish to learn.
