Fantastic facilities and programs

ECU offers a diverse range of courses, and our facilities are some of the best you'll find at any university in Australia.

We have one of Australia's fastest growing Engineering Schools, the largest Nursing program in Western Australia, and our exercise science laboratories are considered among the best in the Southern Hemisphere.

The oldest and most popular School of Education in Western Australia can be found here, along with one of the most comprehensive Arts and Humanities Schools in the Southern Hemisphere.

We're also home to WAAPA, one of the world's leading performing arts academies.

Our graduates rate us 5 stars

In the latest Good Universities Guide*, our graduates gave us a 5-star rating for teaching quality and for the salaries they've started on since graduating.

We've achieved consistent 5-star ratings for the past seven years, including categories such as overall graduate satisfaction and generic skills development.

No other public universities in Western Australia and very few across Australia have comparable results.
