Vice-Chancellor’s Message
There are many benefits in overseas study: it gives you the
opportunity to travel to exciting destinations while also gaining
credits towards your degree; it provides opportunities for personal
growth and improving employment options and it also looks
great on a résumé and may give you a competitive edge in a tight
employment market.
At ECU, we appreciate that choosing a destination is a big
decision. Finding a good fit for your academic and professional
goals as well as the right ‘home-away-from-home’ is important.
With ECU’s extensive range of subject areas, quality teaching,
great facilities, welcoming culture and friendly environment,
coupled with our location in the beautiful state of Western
Australia, we hope that your decision is made easier.
Teaching at ECU is designed to get you job-ready and equip you
with the skills and knowledge upon which to build a rewarding
career. Our campuses at Joondalup, Mount Lawley and the
South West (Bunbury) each have their own culture, yet they
are united by the incredible diversity of the people working and
studying there.
The many exciting opportunities available to you through the
ECU Study Abroad and Exchange Program are detailed in this
brochure. For more information, our friendly staff are available to
talk to you about ECU as your potential study abroad destination.
Make this your milestone year and find out more about how
ECU’s Study Abroad and Exchange Program can help you get
ready for your future career.

“My experience at ECU in


Perth has been fantastic!”
ECU’s facilities, lecturers, and students have all
been excellent. In Perth, I feel closer to nature.
Whenever I need to relax or when I want to take
a break from my studies, I always end up at
Kings Park or at one of Perth’s many beaches.
Studying abroad has given me the opportunity
to appreciate my country’s culture as well
as other countries’ cultures; a truly once in a
lifetime experience!
