DALE

I have found Uxbridge College to be great as the way everything is taught with real world examples and explanations which 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.
