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.


HRUC provides international students with a great range of English Language, Pre-University and Pathway to Degree courses. We offer the A Level programme, which is the UK’s Gold Standard for University Entry into the UK, to help you achieve the grades needed to apply for the world’s leading Universities. We also offer UAL/BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma qualifications that are planned with your future career in mind so you will learn the things you really need to help you go from college straight into work or University.

We also offer dedicated pathways to obtaining a degree in a range of subjects including BTEC Level 4/5 HNC/HND Diploma qualifications in Business, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Building Services Engineering, Computing and Systems Development, Creative Media Production (Games Development), Sport and Travel & Tourism Management.

Please note that we do not offer Student Visa Sponsorship on Level 1 and Level 2 courses.
