Updated UIP system gives better user experience

The updated UIP system is now live and includes improvements to support Unfunded International Providers (UIPs) when submitting data.

The UIP system is an automated data collection system that will collect individual learner and provider data from UIPs. These providers are private training establishments that enrol international students and do not receive government funding.

Additional improvements were made to make the system more user-friendly. This work was completed on 1 May 2018 in time for submission of trimester 1 data this year. The updated UIP system is easier to use and features a new online portal - an additional option for providers to submit data.

The UIP system is a cross-agency project by the Ministry of Education, New Zealand Qualifications Authority and Education New Zealand and will help provide a more comprehensive picture of international student enrolments for this sector. Over time, this information will also help improve market analysis and inform decisions to support the international education industry. 

Tour groups or group study tour operators will submit aggregate data through the Tour Group portal, which is also now live.

More information about the UIP system including the data requirements, the options to submit data and the Tour Group portal can be found at the STEO website.

For any questions, please contact UIP.DataCollection@education.govt.nz.
