RACHEL

I study Level 3 Mechanical Engineering at Uxbridge College. There is a sense of discipline in the college and that makes the environment better for learning. My teachers here are absolutely supportive, approachable and nurturing and are always encouraging us. We have fully equipped workshops with the latest machinery and supportive technicians, who are always ready to help. I like events such as ‘Women in STEM’, they keep me motivated. I would definitely recommend Uxbridge College because I feel it has everything it takes to build a successful future.
