When I looked at the salons on Open Day I felt Uxbridge College was the best place to help me follow my dreams of becoming a hairdresser. What’s not to love about the College - the facilities are perfect and we never run out of products to use. The teachers are so down to earth and helpful. If you had a bad experience in school and you feel college is the same, trust me it’s not.

Uxbridge College makes me feel welcome and included. The teachers are very helpful and through my course and I am gaining the experience required for a career in the hairdressing field. The College has very good facilities and is also easy for me to travel to. I would say Uxbridge College is the right platform and stepping stone to getting your qualifications.
