HRUC (Harrow, Richmond & Uxbridge Colleges) is a publicly funded government College, and has continued to maintain its Student Sponsor Licence on the Register of Student Sponsors since 2009.

HRUC is one of the most successful further education colleges in the UK. Our success rates are among the highest in London and we offer fantastic support in and out of the classroom.

We welcome students from all over the world.  The College equips students with the skills needed to prepare for further study at university, or to go out into the workplace. We care about our students’ success and offer the right teaching and support needed to help them achieve their qualifications.

Student safety and welfare is important at the College and we are dedicated to creating an environment where all individuals have the opportunity to achieve their full potential, and gain a feeling of self-esteem for and from all others.


HRUC's five campuses are located in London Travel Card zones 5 and 6 and are just a short train journey away from the centre of London, so students can enjoy the great range of attractions and activities that our great city has to offer. The areas around our campuses are multi-culturally diverse and most nationalities find a ‘home from home’ community while they are here.

HRUC has good links with all London airports.  Our Colleges are easily accessible via major routes and close to London Heathrow.  Gatwick, Stanstead, Luton and London City Airports are all accessible via high-speed rail links from London.
