Study Offshore

Our offshore programs allow you to study an ECU degree in your home country at one of our partner institutions. If you successfully complete one of these programs, you’ll be awarded an ECU degree.

We work closely with our partners to ensure you receive quality teaching, access to resources, and the support to help you successfully complete your studies closer to home.

Note: If you’re thinking about undertaking a degree in Australia, please visit our International study web page

Why study overseas?

Our offshore programs provide the opportunity for you to study an ECU degree in your home country, but with access to our curricula, academic staff and resources.

Graduates who are awarded an ECU degree after studying at one of our partner institutions receive the same recognition as graduates awarded in Perth, and have the opportunity to attend a graduation ceremony. After graduation, you’ll be part of ECU’s alumni network which offers great networking opportunities with fellow graduates.

Many of our offshore programs recognise prior learning. So if you’ve completed previous study or you have professional work experience, you may be eligible for advanced standing. This can reduce the number of units you’ll need to study to be awarded the ECU degree.
