  • We aim to be the first private training establishment in New Zealand to award a health qualification leading to enrolled nursing.

  • We have a proven track record in education performance:

    • UP Education is the largest independent tertiary provider delivering vocational and higher education

    • UP Education’s Qualification Completion Rates are 25% higher than the public sector median*

    • UP Education’s Qualification Completion Rates are 30% higher among Pacific Peoples and 24% higher among Māori compared to the ITP median*

  • We offer smaller class sizes, so our learners have more 1-on-1 contact with tutors.

  • Through our Enrolled Nursing qualification (when approved) we will offer clinical placements across approximately 100 healthcare facilities from our strong partner network. This network means we can offer our students placements close to home or work, unlike other providers.
