Tailored Study Abroad Programs

At ECU, we teach and graduate global citizens who understand their role in the international community. They achieved a high-level of cultural competency and they know how to apply it. They are world ready.

We work with partners who mirror this ambition to meet their internationalisation goals.

One of the ways we do this is through our Tailored Study Abroad programs, which welcome cohorts of international students to ECU to study English language and academic classes. This is supported through our award-winning Experiencing Australia Program (EAP): a social and cultural engagement component that creates an environment of inclusivity for visiting students.

The EAP is enabled by ECU student volunteers called buddies. Together, students and buddies attend activities on and off campus, exploring the ECU community and iconic Perth locations.

This creates important peer networks that often extend well beyond the Study Abroad course.

ECU has considerable experience developing these dynamic programs to match partner goals. Programs range from three weeks to one semester, with cohorts of 15 students to upwards of 100.

Fast facts:

  • ECU has supported nearly 1,000 international students to complete a tailored program
  • We can develop tailored programs for all ECU partners
