I want to become a sports therapist or move into football coaching. My course is brilliant! We go on lots of organised trips and the college has a number of sports clubs that you can join, like the football team and boxing. The sports staff are very good and the facilities are amazing. If you join Uxbridge College you will be treated very nicely and you will love the course you pick!
