Uxbridge College was not only my local college but also recommended by my mates as being the best college. The lecturers are great, they are friendly and supportive. It’s not like school, here you can have a laugh but also get your work done. There is a good balance, so learning is fun. The facilities are good as there is always somewhere to work.
