Elma had failed the IELTS test for gaining entry to a University of Auckland undergraduate course “a million times” and realised she needed to change direction, so she enrolled in the University of Auckland Certificate in Foundation Studies at UP International College.
“UP International College teachers helped me a lot – they gave me time to plan my future and a chance to know about the subjects I needed for university. The learning experience really improved my English and gave me confidence, and I made friends who are now more like family.”
Elma is now studying a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Accounting and Marketing at the University of Auckland.
