The support I receive at Uxbridge College is great. I can turn to my teachers or any childcare staff for help with studies or any concerns that I may have. This has helped me feel comfortable and secure, knowing that I have help when I need it. My teachers are patient with me, break down things for me to make it easier to understand, thus allowing me to stay on track with my studies and not fall behind. I want to work as a teaching assistant in a school once I complete my course. The facilities in College are good, the LRC is where I go between lessons to keep up with my work and studies. I would surely recommend Uxbridge College to anyone, its friendly environment will definitely make you feel welcome.
