Student prizes

Each year the School recognises the outstanding achievements of our students by awarding prizes at a formal ceremony held at Frasers Restaurant.

Prize selection is awarded according to eligibility criteria, generally the highest unit mark or the highest Weighted Average Mark (WAM) in a course.

Students who have won a prize are notified by February and are invited to attend the annual prize ceremony in March each year. The Student Prize Evening is an important event for our School. We are proud of our students and delight in celebrating their outstanding achievements.

Please contact the Office of Teaching and Learning at SBLTandL@ecu.edu.au should you require information about your eligibility for a student prize.
