We provide a supportive learning environment for our students through a variety of services and facilities.
As an ECU student, you will be able to access a range of resources - from career guidance to academic support; free referencing software to computer access. These services are available to all of our students with many services assisting off-campus (online) students by email, fax or phone.
Resources available include:
Academic skills support
Our learning advisors offer workshops, downloadable support materials and one-on-one consultation on things like referencing, note-taking, assignment & exam preparation, time management, using the library, report writing and more.
Off-campus (online) students can email, fax or phone for assistance.
Specialist library support
Our Faculty library teams provide specialist support for students in specific subject areas and disciplines. Services you can access through your Faculty Library Team, as an on-campus or off-campus (online) student, also include library training, referencing, research strategies and access to library resources.
Free printing credit
We allocate an amount of free printing credit to currently enrolled ECU students each semester.
If you take up the offer of free printing credit, it will be allocated to your ECU SmartCard. This credit can be used for printing across all ECU campuses.
Multimedia resource borrowing
We have a multimedia resources centre on each ECU campus which enables you to borrow multimedia equipment.
These centres also offer binding and laminating services.
Free referencing software
It might be a bit early for you to appreciate this, but we have set up free access to Endnote for currently enrolled ECU students. This means you'll be able to download and use it free of charge!
Endnote works with MS Word to create correctly formatted citations and reference lists - it will be a fantastic help for you in ensuring your assignments are referenced correctly.
We offer several bridging programs aimed at students who will be enrolling into an undergraduate course which assumes they have a working knowledge of a particular subject area.
If you are applying to one of these courses and do not have recent or appropriate secondary subject knowledge in the area, you may be advised to complete the relevant bridging program prior to commencing your undergraduate studies with us.
