Start your mid-year study at ECU
At ECU we think everyone has the potential to be whatever they want. We help all kinds of students to consider their options for entry into university. One of those options is being able to start a course in mid-year, or Semester 2 in July. Why wait until Semester 1 comes around each year? Start university now.
What can you study from mid-year?
Just about anything! Here's a list of courses to choose from, grouped into our eight study areas.
Within each study area you can choose an undergraduate or postgraduate degree. And within most undergraduate degree courses, you can choose a specialisation, or major.
Become World Ready
At ECU we attract lots of students who aren't fresh out of Year 12.
That's because we offer different options for entry into our undergraduate programs.
These include our Experience Based Entry Scheme or UniPrep, both of which can lead you to a degree course.
You could also be awarded credits, based on previous study or training.
ECU offers a diverse range of undergraduate courses and our facilities are some of the best you'll find at any university in Australia.
"Being at WAAPA gave me the opportunity to hone my skills and get them industry ready"
It gave me an understanding of how the industry worked and the work ethic you need to be successful in it.
"Anything is achievable"
Coming from a farming background, I was always interested in studying biology. So I made the decision to move here and begin my studies at ECU.
ECU offered me a course with exciting fieldwork and lecturers who were so welcoming. They even helped me find work experience positions! I have completed volunteer work at the Western Australian Herbarium.
I’ve learned that anything is achievable if you set your mind to it and focus on your goals and dreams.
"I've always wanted to pursue a career in medical research"
I heard ECU's Biomedical Science course covered many different aspects of medical research, including genetics and human biology, so I saw this as a prime opportunity to further my education in this field.
I've been able to gain practical experience in a laboratory outside of university and found this has increased the value of my CV immensely.
My greatest achievement would have to be the International Science Project unit where we visited Tianjin Medical University in Tianjin, China. The trip and experiences have been invaluable!
I've also received the Fertility North Prize in Reproductive Biology. This award has opened the door for possible postgraduate studies in an established laboratory.
