The town has a modern shopping centre, a sports centre, an artificial ski centre and an exciting nightlife to suit the varied tastes and interests of students. London is only 40 minutes away by train, and both Heathrow and Gatwick airports are easily accessible. Students studying Nursing Bucks News are based in Uxbridge, which is on the London Underground network.
