ECU recently signed an international study tour agreement with Zayed University, based in the United Arab Emirates. The agreement will give you the opportunity to travel to the University’s campuses in either Dubai or Abu Dhabi, meet fellow students and immerse yourself in a new and diverse culture.
At ECU, we are very proud of our study tour opportunities and exchange programs. Partnerships with organisations in Europe, South America, North America and Asia have seen our students continue their studies in Universities around the world.
Most recently, ECU students from the School of Computer and Security Science travelled to Nanchung University in China for a two-week study tour program.
The inaugural Nanchung University study tour was the result of an agreement signed last year, which provides students from ECU and Nanchung University the chance to experience tertiary studies in a completely new environment.
Exchange is a great way for students to further develop their professional skills.
International study stands out on your resume, and the ability to travel to new countries and thrive in foreign environments is an invaluable skill.
As the semester approaches its conclusion, I encourage all students to think about what they want to get out of 2013. How can you reach your potential and get the best out of your time here?
International study and exchange opportunities are a great way to make you stand out from your fellow graduates. I urge you to make the most of these exciting opportunities.
