With a well established network of international agents, UPC attracts students from many countries around the world. Some students come to Australia to develop and improve their English skills, or for vocational training which leads to career advancement back home or in Australia. The majority of students seek further studies at the university level.
UPC College is one of a few CRICOS colleges in Australia which has been awarded contracts by the NSW Department of Education & Community to deliver VET courses to domestic students through the newly created Smart & Skill Program.
