I joined Uxbridge College because it had the course I wanted to study. I love cooking and I want to continue my studies here to do the Level 1 catering course. My experience has been very positive here, I get a lot of help and support from my tutors and Learning Support Assistants when needed. All the staff here are very helpful and kind. I have made many good friends here too. I enjoy my course and especially my work experience at Dovetail Dining Centre, prepping food, laying tables and meeting customers. If you are planning to join Uxbridge College I’d say ‘go for it’ as it is one of the greatest colleges ever!
