UP history

EQI has owned and operated a university preparation program since 2003. For over ten years, EQI 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, EQI reviewed and revitalised the UFP curriculum to launch UP in 2014. 


UP program recognition
