Success Story

Tsz Yin (Jaffit) Wong

Jaffit wanted to get into a top New Zealand university so she enrolled in an AUT University Foundation Studies course with UP International College, knowing it would help her decide what to study.

“At first, I was planning to study Occupational Therapy, but after taking different subjects in the Foundation Studies course I realised I was more interested in Arts subjects.”

Jaffit graduated from AUT University with a Bachelor of Arts in Criminology and hopes to work in New Zealand for an organisation providing assistance to less fortunate members of society.

“It was a great sense of satisfaction to do well studying in a second language.”
