There has been a change to the original timeframe for the completion of the merger. Following our most recent update (January 2022), the proposed merger between Richmond upon Thames College (RuTC) and HCUC (Harrow College & Uxbridge College) is making good progress, with both colleges continuing to work towards a new merger date in Autumn 2022.
