University Preparation College

Congratulations to University Preparation College for completing a successful Quality Review activity.

“The University Preparation College (UPC) is located in Surry Hills, Sydney, and provides a welcoming and friendly student services desk. The Centre is easily accessible by public transport, with buses and train services located nearby. The location provides students with easy access to a range of amenities including cafes, restaurants and shops. Students come to UPC from Vietnam, Japan, Egypt, Hong Kong and the Philippines among other countries, and are currently enrolled in either a General English or an EAP class. The majority of students are on pathways to VET courses at UPC College. 

UPC offers a comprehensive range of resources to students, including self-study resources via Microsoft Teams and face-to-face support. After-class language-focus workshops, study skills sessions, and workshops aimed at acclimating students to life in Australia provide students with a holistic approach to student life. 

UPC conducts regular course evaluations, soliciting feedback from teachers and students each term. Teacher feedback informs the test validation sessions, while student feedback is used to improve courses and services.   

UPC places great emphasis on student attendance and progress and offers students at risk of falling below the 80% attendance threshold make up classes to help them stay on track with their studies.”
