Success Story

Xiaoyue (Ivy) Wang

The strong reputation of AUT University helped Ivy decide to enrol in the UP International College AUT University Certificate in Foundation Studies to pursue her dream of studying in New Zealand.

“I enjoyed the outstanding teaching and use of technology. I liked that we could ask questions anytime in class and teachers would ask us questions too, to make sure we fully understood. Sometimes we played games based on what we learnt, and the school gave us each an iPad to use in class and for homework.”

With a love for numbers and a developing interest in business, Ivy took courses in Macroeconomics and Statistics, as well as core classes in English language and independent learning. After graduating, Ivy received guaranteed entry into AUT University to study Accounting.
