The University bid bon voyage to 53 exchange and study abroad students this week, as they head home after a semester at ECU.
The students came to ECU from a range of countries, including Austria, Canada, China, France, Germany, Norway, Sweden and the USA. They have been studying at ECU this semester as part of their home institution degrees.
The event also farewelled 35 ECU students, who are heading overseas on their own exchange placements next semester.
The students will be studying at exchange partner universities for one or two semesters as part of their ECU degree in countries such as Austria, Canada, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, Sweden and the USA.
“It was great to see all of our study abroad and exchange students again and to hear about their semester at ECU and in Perth,” Natalie Ilott, Senior Study Abroad and Exchange Officer, ECU International said.
“We can’t believe it is time to say goodbye to them all but we hope they have had a positive and rewarding study abroad experience and we wish them all safe travels back home.”
“We are also very proud of our 35 ECU students who are taking on the challenge of studying overseas next semester as part of their ECU degree. They will all be great ambassadors for ECU in their host countries and we look forward to hearing their exchange stories on their return. Bon voyage!” Natalie said.
The function was held at the Joondalup Campus, with Deputy-Vice-Chancellor (ECU International) Professor Tony Watson officially farewelling the students as they either head home, or embark on a new adventure overseas.
