BAKRI

I joined Uxbridge College because I had heard a lot of positive things about it. Everyone here is friendly and kind and my teachers are very supportive and help me a lot with developing my English. I have also made great friends from around the world through my course. At first I struggled with my English, but thanks to my teachers I moved up from Entry 1 to Entry 3. If you work hard and put in the effort, Uxbridge College can help you build a bright future.
