I am enjoying my learning at Uxbridge College. The engineering labs are spacious with a wide range of equipment for students to use and learn. The staff are very friendly and helpful and there is a variety of resources to learn with. The College was recommended to me by a guidance counsellor and I think it’s a very good place to learn
