"I've really enjoyed the style of teaching and methods the UFP teachers use. All teachers have full and excellent backgrounds in their respective fields and share their knowledge very passionately. The location of the college is also a huge selling point, with it being surrounded by loads of cafés and shops which make breaks between lessons really fun.

I'm studying medical engineering at UFP and as a result I've received offers from some of the best universities in my area of study such as Kings College London, Surrey University, and Queen Mary University. I've accepted the offer from Queen Mary and can't wait to start!"
