I decided to join Uxbridge College because of its good reputation and excellent facilities. I have had opportunities to develop not just academically but also personally. My teachers are very supportive and helpful. The workshops I practice in, are well-equipped with the latest machinery and we have knowledgeable technicians. I also like the library a lot, where I study with my friends. I feel Uxbridge College will do whatever it takes to bring out the best in you!
