Have you thought about studying overseas? It’s a great chance to see the world, make new friends and gain valuable experience for your résumé – all while gaining credit for your degree.
It’s something I can personally recommend. Shortly after completing my studies at the Newcastle University in the north of England, I moved to Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) on a NATO Fellowship. It was an experience that opened new doors and really changed the course of my life for the better.
In a way, it eventually led to me moving from Scotland to Western Australia to become Vice-Chancellor here at ECU.
Studying overseas through ECU can take a range of forms, from spending a semester or two at one of our more than 100 partner institutions, to joining one of the many study tours we regularly offer.
ECU also provides financial support which may assist you when studying overseas.
My advice is to talk with your lecturers or course coordinator to understand the different options for study abroad, exchange or study tour.
You can also check out our Study abroad and exchange webpages for more information.
