This short enabling course (UniPrep) prepares students for university level study by teaching them the required skills for academic success, with an emphasis on the student becoming an independent learner. Conducted in a supportive and hands-on environment, the course covers learning skills, research and writing processes, numeracy tools and accessing knowledge. Additionally, students will be introduced to university life at ECU and will have access to course and career advice to assist in making informed decisions about undergraduate degree selection.
The course is suitable for both recent school leavers and mature age students who have not studied at university previously.
Australian citizens, holders of humanitarian or permanent visas and New Zealand citizens who will be resident in Australia for the duration of their unit/s of study are normally eligible for Commonwealth funding, making the course free, with no up-front or deferred tuition fees.
Upon completion of the course, graduates will qualify for entry into a wide range of undergraduate courses at ECU.
