Application for admission

ECU determines each student application and admission into the course according to the University entry requirements, policies, rules and any other requirements as specified within the Transnational Services Agreement.

Submission of application

The Partnerships Officer will provide the Partner with an Application Form that is pre-populated with institution and course details.

The Partner Institution will send, on behalf of their student/s, a completed and signed Application Form, certified qualifications and certified English proficiency documents to ipapply@ecu.edu.au. This will be reviewed and assessed by the relevant ECUI Admissions Officer.

ECU must receive ALL complete Applications for any given intake at least two weeks prior to the start of classes.

The Admissions Officer will assess applications on the criteria set out below:

a. Academic entry requirements - Students admitted to ECU courses must comply with the Academic Entry requirements prescribed for the course and detailed in the schedules of the agreement. Evidence of a student’s qualifications must be supplied at the time of application for admission to the course. If the student is applying while they are still completing their pathway program at the Partner Institution, this should be stated on the application form and evidence of completion of the program must be sent through before the start date of the course.

Please see the Admissions Policy for details on different academic entry pathways to ECU.

b. English entry requirements - Students admitted to ECU courses must comply with the standard English language requirements prescribed for the course and detailed in the schedules to the agreement. Evidence of a student’s English language competency must be supplied at the time of application for admission to the course.

The University’s English Standards Policy provides information for alternative measures of English language competency together with the English language requirements for all courses.

c. Advanced Standing - Assessment of Advanced Standing - if required. Further details relating to advanced standing applications are given below.

The Admissions Officer will advise the Partner Institution of the outcome of the application, which will fall into one of the following categories:

1. A Full Offer will be issued if the student has met both Academic and English entry requirements;

2. A Conditional Offer will be issued if the student has not met Academic and/or English entry requirements with the documents provided, but it is likely that they will be able to do so with additional documentation. The conditions of the offer must be met before they can be admitted and enrolled in units;

3. The application will be declined if the student has not met Academic and/or English entry requirements with the documents provided and it is clear they will not be able to do so by providing additional documentation.

4. Advanced Standing: A Reduced Duration Offer may be made if the student qualifies for advanced standing. Where a qualification has not been assessed previously, the Admissions Officer may request unit outlines for the course in order to be assessed for Advanced Standing.

Offer letters will be sent to the Partner Institution.

Acceptance Process

The student must accept their offer by signing the 2nd page of the offer letter, and the Partner Institution must then return the offer on the student’s behalf to accept@ecu.edu.au. All acceptances must be received before the start of classes. No acceptances will be processed after the start of semester.

Each student must sign the acceptance in person. It is not possible for the Partner Institution to accept an offer on behalf of a student.

The Admissions Officer will accept the student into their chosen course and email the details to the Partner Institution and the Partnerships Officer.
