Welcome to London
HCUC - Harrow College and Uxbridge College
Our two colleges are positioned in West London with easy access to the city’s famous attractions, arts, nightlife and financial centre.
We are regulated as HCUC by the British Government and licenced to accept students on study visas. We also welcome foreign students already resident in the UK.
People come from around the world to study among a diverse group of students from the UK and abroad, safe in the knowledge that they are being looked after by a public institution which combines a long heritage with a modern outlook.
London is one the world’s most significant cities. It owes much of its success to the creativity, skills and entrepreneurialism of millions of people who have come from around the world to transform the UK into a melting pot of talent. However far you have travelled to join us, we think you will feel right at home.
The subjects we teach are open to you, along with the full range of our facilities enjoyed by our UK students. We are part of the Government regulated college sector in which most students are adults.
London Borough of Harrow
Campuses at Harrow-on-the-Hill and Harrow Weald
The borough has grown to become one of London’s largest hubs of commerce, night life and entertainment, with excellent links to central London and the nearby Hertfordshire countryside. The college has two campuses, Harrow on the Hill and Harrow Weald, both with excellent transport links.
The borough features in the childhoods of many famous British figures including Sir Winston Churchill during his time at school, the singer Sir Elton John, and James Bond actor Sir Roger Moore who were both brought up in the area.
Today, it is one of London’s most religiously diverse boroughs.
London Borough of Hillingdon
Campuses at Uxbridge and Hayes.
The London borough of Hillingdon is rich in history. Uxbridge is the site of the operations room from which the air force was coordinated during the Battle of Britain during the second world war. You you can still visit today.
Uxbridge has strong links to the English Civil War and was taken over by both sides as they attempted to negotiate peace, without success. The talks took place in a room which is now part of the Crown and Treaty public house.
The town also sits by the Colne Valley Regional Park, within walking distance of the town centre. Here, you can discover some of the best countryside England has to offer.
The borough is the birthplace of Ronnie Wood of the Rolling Stones, the place where George Orwell worked as a teacher and where super heavyweight gold medallist boxer Audley Harrison went to school.
The underground station takes you quickly into central London.
