Study abroad

Our Study Abroad Program invites international students to apply to study here for one or two semesters. Successful completion of units can count towards your home institution degree.

If your home university doesn’t have an exchange agreement with ECU, or is unable to offer you an exchange place here, you can apply as a study abroad student.

Note: If you’re thinking about undertaking a 3 or 4-year degree, please visit our International study web page.

Why study overseas?

Overseas study allows you to travel while gaining degree credits, and provides opportunities for personal growth.

It also looks great on a résumé and may give you a competitive edge in the challenging employment market.

There are many good reasons for studying in Perth too!

Study options

We recommend you seek advice from your university’s International Office about how study at ECU will be credited to your home institution degree.

  • ECU units are usually worth 15 credit points. Students have the option of choosing a 3-unit or 4-unit study program.
  • You can choose units at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels across ECU’s eight study areas.

Course entry and applying

Students must meet ECU’s course entry requirements, including English competency. Some courses have special entry requirements.

Overseas Student Health Cover is also a compulsory requirement for you to receive a Student Visa.

If you’ve met all of these requirements you can proceed to an online application.


The study abroad tuition fees for 2018 are highly competitive and represent excellent value for money.

  • 3 units: AUD $7,770
  • 4 units: AUD $10,360
Note: Some units may have additional fees attached to them that must be paid by the student.
