Success Story

Qiyu (Eric) Chen

Eric was keen to study Commerce at the University of Auckland but didn’t have the right subjects, so he decided to do a Foundation Studies course at UP International College. The course offered him the qualifications in Accounting and Economics he needed for his first year of university.

Now studying a conjoint degree in Commerce and Science at the University, Eric encourages prospective students to choose their subjects carefully, then study hard.

“Embrace technology and learn how to use Google services and cloud drives, and become a Microsoft Office Specialist. You’ll need it in the future.”
