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!

I met some amazing teachers during open day and knew they could help me achieve the grades to get into university. I have a lot of opportunities in Uxbridge College – I joined the netball team and became an ambassador for the ‘This Girl Can’ campaign. The sports facilities in the college are amazing with many extra-curricular activities. Come and have a look at the college and try something new.
