I love that my course involves a lot of practical work to develop my skills for university and future career preparation. The teachers are very helpful and provide quality teaching and the Student Support and Careers Team have been very helpful in dealing with student concerns and problems.

I have found Uxbridge College to be great, as the way everything is taught with real world examples and explanations really helps in understanding completely new topics. The facilities for my course are great and staff are constantly offering us resources that we didn’t even know about! My time here has been great as my course is extremely interesting and was a lot more than I expected. It really helped open my eyes to the field of computing, all while receiving an outstanding education.
