Department of Education International (DEi) has owned and operated a university preparation program since 2003. For over ten years, DEi offered the Unilearn Foundation Program (UFP), which proved particularly popular with a number of colleges in China. Over 1,000 students completed the UFP and successfully entered a range of undergraduate studies in Australia and abroad.
After ten years of successful UFP delivery, DEi reviewed and revitalised the UFP curriculum to launch UP in 2014.
