I attended a taster day before I joined Uxbridge College. I liked the way teachers made the class fun. They are well-qualified, very helpful and approachable. The science labs here are fully equipped and we have everything we need on our course. We have easy access to computers, chrome books and other resources from the library. I like the work experience projects that we are involved in, as it helps me learn and develop new skills and prepares me for the future. I will definitely recommend this College to anyone looking to join.

I liked a lot of things about Uxbridge College when I came for the open day. Its reputation of being the No1 college, the diversity among students, helpful and friendly staff and opportunities like work experience for my course and I wasn’t disappointed. I love how supportive the staff are, and want us to work to our full potential. Even during lockdown, the online sessions and presentations set up by teachers were very helpful. All lessons are laid out very logically and class discussions help fill any gaps in my understanding. If you join Uxbridge College, you won’t regret your choice!
