About Us

We are Harrow, Richmond, and Uxbridge Colleges (HRUC) one of the largest further education colleges in England. 

On 4th January 2023, Harrow and Uxbridge College merged with Richmond upon Thames College to become HRUC. The Colleges are now officially part of the same organisation and will work together to provide the best opportunities to students.

We are a large general further education college group, based in the London boroughs of Harrow, Hillingdon and Richmond upon Thames, with five campuses at Harrow on the Hill, Harrow Weald, Hayes, Uxbridge and Richmond upon Thames.

We believe it is the people at HRUC that make the College successful and our ultimate challenge is to provide an excellent learning experience to students to help them reach their full potential.

Through all three Colleges, we offer full-time study programmes across all 15 subject sector areas from Entry Level to Level 5 as well as a range of part-time courses at various levels, enabling people to upskill, develop their career, learn something new or get back into study for work or higher education. Our full-time provision includes A Levels, vocational and technical courses for careers and we were the first London college to offer T Levels.

Much of our Level 4 and 5 provision is through the state of the art facilities through the West London Institute of Technology (WLIoT) which offers higher-level technical qualifications in STEM subjects with provision spanning all three colleges – specifically Construction, Digital and Engineering.

HRUC Apprenticeships and Skills is the area of the College Group that oversees apprenticeships, work-based learning, programmes for the unemployed as well as many of our links and partnership work with employers.

Each of our vibrant colleges has its own distinguished history and is serving local communities and employers across west and south London with distinction.

We are proud to be one of London’s best performing colleges.

Today, HRUC is delivering the very best for its ambitious learners. We do this by offering high quality courses, apprenticeships and programmes for young people, enabling them to make extraordinary progress towards their own personal goals.

We’re a welcoming group of exceptional colleges building new relationships with schools, businesses, and industry. Exploring exciting new opportunities to collaborate with a range of local, national, and international partners.

Our HRUC portfolio includes three further education colleges, the West London Institute of Technology, providing higher technical STEM qualifications and HRUC Apprenticeships & Skills providing a range of apprenticeships and support for businesses to develop their workforce.
