REBECCA

I came to Uxbridge College as they offered me the best opportunity to pursue my career in the motor industry. The facilities are excellent as there are three workshops which are well maintained and fully equipped with everything we need.

The lecturers are great, they offer support whenever and wherever needed and are extremely friendly - nothing is too much trouble. The college is a friendly and safe place to study – I would definitely recommend it to friends.
