About Us

Universal English College was established in 1988, making it one of the longest operating private English language colleges in Australia. That’s more than 30 years of students from around the world learning English here at the fantastic UEC campus in Sydney.

In that time, tens of thousands of students from over 120 countries have studied with us here in Sydney. This includes thousands and thousands of students who have successfully completed our academic English program and gone on to complete college and university courses in Australia and internationally. One of these successful UEC alumni completed her UEC academic program and her university studied and is now a marketing manager at UEC! Recently, we welcomed a student whose parents first met while studying at UEC more than 20 years ago!

And today, UEC Business, our vocational college, welcomes more and more of our English students who want to stay on to study business programs with us too.

Back in the 1980s, before many of our current students were even born, the founders of UEC, Mr and Mrs Kamukasu, worked very hard to create an excellent learning environment for international students to study in Australia. They are retired now, and the college has new owners and mangers now, but our original founders are so happy to see their legacy is alive and well and so many students are still achieving their study dreams with Universal English College every year.

All those years ago, Universal English College was established to be a safe, quality-focused, fun, friendly place for students and staff. The world has changed so much since then, but UEC is still that way today. UEC is still all about bringing together great teachers, great courses, a great campus, and exceptional service with great students! All of us at UEC are still working hard every day to make sure students get the best opportunities to learn and achieve their goals in a culture of care and friendliness.

We are passionate about delivering exceptional customer service at UEC. We are deeply committed to the people we engage with – our students, our staff, our partners institutions and our agents. Our students and partners tell us this is what makes UEC really stand out.

We hope to welcome you to Sydney and to our beautiful campus one day soon and to be a part of your UEC journey!
