It's how we discovered that the quality of teaching here is the best in Western Australia. Being rated 5 stars by our graduates for 11 years in a row confirms that.

It's also how we learned from QILT that we’re Australia’s top ranked public university for student satisfaction.

And it's how we know that we're one of the best young universities in the world under 50 years old.

So the real question is, why not choose ECU?
