ALEXANDRIA

Uxbridge College has given me some of the best opportunities. The facilities are fantastic and I have the chance to go on multiple trips – I am off to Cyprus for one of my units - and the work experience opportunity allows me to venture out and see new areas of the industry. The mock cabin and other facilities for my course are very good. The college has helped me develop as a person and academically. The staff are amazing and there is help when you need it.
