UPC, or University Preparation College is a high quality education provider accredited by the Australian Government to deliver English and VET programs to Australian and international students. UPC history goes back to early 2002 when a private college was established to provide coaching to local students. By early 2004, a group of graduates and academics from three of the top Australian universities: University of New South Wales, University of Sydney and University of Technology, Sydney conceived the idea of a high quality private college. UPC College was established in late 2004. University Preparation College offers a range of courses from English to Vocational programs. We are particularly proud of our association with a number of universities and our English language pathways which lead directly to those universities. Our vocational education program is broad, offering courses in Accounting and Childcare with others to follow. The education and welfare of UPC students is our primary concern.
The University Preparation College (UPC) promotes education as a means to excel in all aspects of life. Our College strives to create a meaningful study experience that recognises every individual's cultural background and assists our students on their chosen path. Our programs are designed to help serious students articulate to a degree or higher education at university, or to work towards vocational trade recognition in Australia. We will provide a study environment which allows our students to learn smarter, learn better.
UPC is based at its Bankstown campus. Bankstown is a multi-cultural city which is easily reached by a 30-minute train ride from Sydney Central.
Our academic staff are industrially experienced trainers and post-graduate university academics in the areas of vocational training and English Language. The college is well equipped with lecture rooms, modern computer labs and common student areas. There are well equipped kitchen facilities for both staff and students, and private space to meet with your teachers and management. Students' social needs are not overlooked and dedicated areas are provided.
We offer English Language Intensive Courses for Overseas Students (ELICOS) programs, and Diploma and Advanced Diploma programs in Early Childhood Education & Care (Childcare), Accounting, Business, Management and Marketing.
