University Preparation College (UPC) is a partner institute of Equinox Education Services (EES) and is based in Sydney, Australia. UPC has a well-established reputation because of its Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) qualifications.

With the Certificate III in ECEC, a nine-month course, students are officially able to work in the Australian Childcare Industry, although they can get special permission to work part-time, shortly after they gain a few units. The qualification offers a fantastic chance for people to find skilled work in a growing industry in Australia and around the world.

What makes the course unique is that it offers a lot of support, particularly in relation to gaining work experience. Recently UPC acquired a second childcare centre and are planning to open even more. UPC also recently entered into a relationship with Helsinki University to introduce five Helsinki-based childcare centres to Australia. All of these collaborations will enable UPC to provide the very best work experience opportunities for its students.

For those who wish to stay in Australia longer, UPC also run the 18-month Diploma of ECEC, which can help students get a graduate work visa, to stay and work full-time for 1.5 years.

Irish-based students or residents that book the Early Childhood Education and Care course through EES before 31st May 2018 can avail of a special 30% discount on Tuition fees with just a $500 AUD deposit required. To make a booking or for further information, please contact EES via here.
