Main Content

Online

We offer a wide range of courses which are available for study online.

Studying a course online will enable you to study the course without ever having to come to an ECU campus.

This is an option for students, who for reasons such as distance, domestic responsibilities, work commitments or disability would prefer not to relocate to study.

How does it work?

Online study is mainly delivered via our learning management system and supported by supplementary material we post to you – including printed information and CD ROMs.

Communication and support

If you study online, your ECU student email account will be used for most correspondence to you, for example any exam information, or unit updates from coordinators and tutors.

If you live relatively close to an ECU campus, you’ll be able to access campus facilities and learning support services. If not, some support services can still be accessed online.

Textbooks

You can purchase textbooks from a Co-Op Shop on one of our campuses, or by ordering them online.

Library access

Resources are available to off-campus students via the ECU Library.

You can conduct research online through the library databases and online catalogue and they’ll provide you with copies of journal articles and books if you live a long way from an ECU campus.

Examinations

Most online units will require you to attend a final examination. You can register your attendance at one of our examination centre locations using Student Information Management Online (SIMO).

SIMO is also used to enrol for your study units.

Student support

As an online student, living close to an ECU campus, you will be able to access our on-campus student life and learning support services.

You can access a range of these services online if you are not living close to an ECU campus.
