The help and support I received during my application process made me sure about wanting to enrol at Uxbridge College. The support from the teachers is amazing and the work experience opportunities we have on our courses are fantastic too. I would definitely recommend this college as it’s so friendly and supportive with a wide variety of courses.

I chose Uxbridge College as it provides amazing support for students with disabilities. The staff and learners create a positive environment at the College. The lessons and resources are accessible for all students. During lockdown, my teachers were very supportive and ensured I didn’t fall back in my studies with videos and emails of lessons, while my learning support assistant cleared my doubts via hangout/zoom calls and I was able to do my exam on time. I would recommend the College to everyone.
