About ECU Located in Western Australia, Edith Cowan University (ECU) provides the ideal learning environment for people seeking to reach their potential. ECU’s combination of industry-relevant teaching and research, a supportive study environment and award-winning facilities enables students to thrive in a rapidly-changing world. Established in 1991, ECU took the opportunity to reshape the way higher education is delivered in a distinctive and inspiring campus environment. Courses are developed in consultation with industry, and teaching staff have extensive industry experience and networks. ECU students can consequently expect placement opportunities, fieldwork, practicums and networking events as part of their studies. This approach has been rewarded with five-star ratings for teaching quality for seven years in a row in the Good Universities Guide. Very few universities have ever achieved this. ECU’s world-class research strives to make a difference in Western Australia and beyond, focusing on working with communities, business and government organisations to solve real-world problems. The University was named after Edith Dirksey Cowan, the first woman to be elected to an Australian Parliament. Her life was dedicated to the belief that education was the key to growth, change and improvement in society. Her example informs ECU’s values. The university prides itself on developing capable graduates who lead engaged and productive lives in the communities in which they live and work. At a glance ECU has more than 23,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students. We also annually welcome around 3,600 international students, originating from more than 100 countries. We have eight teaching schools that collectively deliver more than 300 diverse courses. This includes Schools of Engineering, Science, Education, Arts and Humanities, Business and Law, Medical and Health Sciences, Nursing and Midwifery and the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts. Courses are offered on three campuses – Joondalup and Mount Lawley in metropolitan Perth and the South West Campus at Bunbury, 200km south of the capital city.
