Student Testimonials

My experience with UKCBC so far has been great, everyone is approachable and nice. When it comes to academics, every lesson is very practical which I believe would be useful to us once we start working.    What I like most about studying in UKCBC are the facilities that they have provided for us like student lounge where I am able to chill around with my friends and watch others play Fifa.

As it's my first year into a college course, I have received a lot of support in my units and is as great of an experience as I was hoping for. I hope the quality of the faculty and courses will be same for the next 2 years of my study here. The thing that I like most about studying here at UKCBC is the staff is that they are really approachable and are always ready to help.
