Change education provider

We recommend that you consult the International Student Re-packaging, Release or Withdrawal Policy before proceeding with your application to change your education provider.

If you wish to change your education provider, you will need to complete a Repackage - Release - Withdraw Request form and follow the steps for each of the following options:   

  • Repackage (change your pre-university provider)
  • Release (seeking release from ECU)
  • Withdrawal (withdrawal from ECU)

Please allow 10 working days for your application to be assessed. We will respond to your request in writing and we will provide information on the implications of our decision and further options available to you.

If you need further information or clarification, please contact us via email apply@ecu.edu.au

Repackage (change your pre-university provider)

We recommend that you consult the International Student Re-packaging, Release or Withdrawal Policy before proceeding with your application to change your pre-university education provider.

If you wish to change your education provider, you will need to complete a Repackage - Release - Withdraw Request form. You must send the completed form along with a valid offer letter from the proposed new pre-university education provider to apply@ecu.edu.au.

We will only approve your requests to repackage in accordance with the International Student Re-packaging, Release or Withdrawal Policy.

We will confirm the outcome of your application in writing and if approved, issue a new Offer Letter. Once the offer is accepted we will then issue a new Confirmation of Enrolment (COE) if required.

Repackaging may or may not have visa implications. If you require further information, we recommend that you contact the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP).

If your application is approved you will be advised in writing and ECU will cancel your Confirmation of Enrolment (COE). Please note that this will have visa implications and we recommend that you contact the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) without delay to seek advice on whether you require a new student visa.
