Uxbridge College is a great environment for learning. All the teachers I work with are exceptional and give me endless support to achieve my goals. My course has given me such an uplift in confidence and has set me on the right track for my
future. I like the opportunities the College gives me. I have been able to dance at big venues like Twickenham stadium. I would say definitely give Uxbridge College a try. I was nervous at the start but now I can’t imagine myself anywhere else.

I think Uxbridge College is amazing. The teachers are very supportive and encourage me to do the best I can. I plan to go to Drama school after I finish my course. To anyone planning on joining Uxbridge College, I’d say ‘you’re gonna love it!’.
