Student Life

Academic learning is vital for success – but learning outside the classroom means you get to experience the local lifestyle. We encourage our students to make friends, have fun and fully embrace all aspects of New Zealand or Australian life.

Over 1000 students from more than 50 different countries study at UP Education. Our main New Zealand campus is in the heart of central Auckland, and we have a second campus in Wellington where we run the Victoria University of Wellington Foundation Studies Programme. We also offer an Australian option with Foundation Studies in Hobart,Tasmania.

As well as a first-rate learning environment, we offer a wide range of activities beyond the classroom which can take the experience of studying in a foreign country to a whole new level.

Many of our students are happy to organise their own events and activities, and enjoy meeting up at the Student Learning Centre on Saturday mornings to study and socialise. The Student Learning Centre manager knows all the latest events that are happening around the city, and regularly updates the noticeboard with fun ideas for students.
