Success Story

Chunxu Chen

While still living in China, Chunxu learnt that completing a Foundation Studies course could help her prepare for studying Nursing at AUT University in New Zealand.

“UP International College is a great platform to prepare you for future studies – the Foundation Studies teachers are specialised in helping international students tackle their learning weaknesses. I loved the open learning style where questions and discussion were welcome, and I also found the group work helpful. This boosted my confidence – a skill that was very much needed during my undergraduate studies and when working as a student nurse in clinical placements.”

Now a qualified nurse, Chunxu hopes to specialise in gerontology.
