The students spent the day touring the campus and attending workshops to give them a better understanding of what to expect at uni.
A 'speed dating' style session gave students a chance to quiz university staff about the courses available at ECU. The students learnt about their options in Year 12 and the different entry pathways ECU can provide.
Following a barbecue lunch, the students attended a study skills workshop on how to prepare for the TEE while still maintaining a balance between study and life.
Woodvale student Megan Bilaloski said the day was very helpful and informative.
"A lot of emphasis is placed on our final year but it's been good spending the day at ECU and learning about what university will be like," she says.
Adam Sampson is looking forward to going to university and taking a more independent approach to his study.
"The atmosphere here is more relaxed than high school and I'm looking forward to studying subjects that I really care about," he says.
Georgie Monkhouse from the School of Education said that ECU prides itself on the strong partnerships and links it has established with local schools.
"As part of our philosophy on partnerships, we encourage local schools and community groups to visit the University," she says.
"It's a great opportunity for year 12 students to experience university life, view the facilities, and learn about the courses on offer at ECU."
"Students leave at the end of the day with a better understanding of the admissions process and the course options that are available."
