The best thing about Uxbridge College is their kind and supportive staff. They are always there to help me, be it with extra support lessons or spending extra time to help me understand. The overall environment at the College is very good. The engineering workshops are well-equipped and I can work safely in them. There is always someone to help and guide you through your course here.
