In Uniformed Public Services, discipline and teamwork are the main values. The tutors maintain these values throughout the course and through various adventurous activities such as expeditions, which are amazing, and fitness competitions. I’ve learned social and life skills that will help in the future. The facilities such as the gym and sports equipment are very good and the tutors really know what they are talking about. Whatever you are looking to do, Uxbridge College has all the appropriate facilities and support you need.

I chose Uxbridge College because it is the No1 college in London. I completed my Extended Diploma in Public Services and am now studying in Portsmouth University, pursuing a BA (Hons) in International Relations. Uxbridge College has the right facilities for the course and also has quiet and common areas for students to relax. The aspects I liked best were the teachers and the trips we went on as part of the course. I would say, definitely visit Uxbridge College and see how good they are.
