Current research

Drawing app for kids

This research project is a drawing app for young children (3–6 years old) that not only gives them a fun way to draw but also teaches them about local wildlife. The research involves comparison with a similar app to see how the differences in features are perceived by the user.

The aim is to make the app part of an exhibition in Te Papa, but this is not yet approved. A further review will take place in August 2019.

Our brochure explores everything you need to know including an outline of study options, key information about enrolment, and all our campuses spread around New Zealand.

Following the Government announcement, New Zealand is moving to Alert Level 4 in response to COVID-19. This means all our campuses will be shut to students from Tuesday 24 March 2020 for four weeks. We have invested in digital tools in order to stream the delivery of all of our programs and we foresee minimal disruption to our current and future students. Delivery of streamed online classes begins on the 6th April. Please go to our parent company, UP Education for further information
