Student Story

Student Waheed Safi, age 18

A-levels in Chemistry, Maths, Further Maths and Physics and GCSEs in ICT, Maths, Urdu, Chemistry, Physics and English.

Waheed says: 'My ambition has always been to go to university, and now I have four A-levels at Grade A and a place at Somerville College, University of Oxford, to study Engineering Science. I couldn't have got where I am without the help of the staff and my friends at Uxbridge College.

I would definitely recommend Uxbridge College and the courses I studied. The teaching is of a high standard, and the staff are all so friendly and care about us as individuals.

I would like to run my own engineering firm once I have got experience in the industry. My family are really proud of me and my sister is now studying at Uxbridge College too.'
