Mid-year FAQs

Latest answers to common questions about studying in Semester 2 and beyond.

  • Not exactly. Lectures with more than 40 students will continue to be provided online due to social distancing requirements.

    We expect that all lectures of fewer than 40 students, tutorials, workshops, labs and pracs will, at this stage, be delivered on campus, provided they can be done so safely and according to Government requirements.

    When the restrictions are eased, we'll return to normal campus life, but that will depend on advice from the WA and Federal Governments.

    Also, students who are considered vulnerable according to the Government's COVID-19 guidelines will require special arrangements.

  • Scroll down to the Courses section to find full-time and part-time courses available for Semester 2 start. It's most of the courses we offer in Semester 1.

    Part-time courses available for mid-year entry

    In the Courses section below, open one of the eight study areas and you'll see a list of courses offered, including some that display 'PT', meaning part-time. Part-time study means enrolling in one or two units maximum per semester.

  • We encourage students to apply as soon as possible so they don't miss out on places, especially for popular courses that can be over-subscribed. Applying and acceptiing an offer is also best done before your Orientation Week starts on 20 July.

    For closing dates and times, check our Important Dates page.

  • Semester 2 will commence on Monday 27 July. All new students will be asked to participate in an online Orientation program, starting on 20 July.

    Orientation Week helps you prepare for uni life, including understanding more about the course you've enrolled in, what systems you'll be using as a student, and even getting to know some of your (virtual) peers.

    Orientation Week activities are designed for domestic, international and online students.


What can you study in Semester 2 2020?

Most of our courses will be offered in Semester 2. However, you may find that some courses with mandatory practical units aren't being offered until 2021 as they can't be completely taught online.

If you planned to study one of those courses, please talk to us.

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.

Student stories

  • Jordan Butler

    Jordan Butler

    ECU Civil Engineering graduate

    "If you want a well-rounded and practical experience, definitely study Engineering at ECU"

    My advice to students would be to study to get a job, not to get a degree. Maximise your opportunities to get experience that will get you a career. So for me, that was participating in Engineering societies, going overseas, joining the Vice‑Chancellor's forum and so forth. All of these gave me interpersonal skills and international experience.

    I was also named the WA Young Professional Engineer of the Year 2018 at the Engineers Australia WA Engineering Excellence Awards.

    If you want a well‑rounded and practical experience, definitely study Engineering at ECU.

  • Sharna Allan

    Bachelor of Science (Nursing)/Bachelor of Science (Midwifery) student

    "ECU South West is a tight-knit community where you get a sense of belonging"

    After graduating from high school in 2015, I had no idea what area of study I wanted to pursue at university. I decided to attend the ECU South West Open Day and found out they were offering a dual degree of Nursing and Midwifery. I was very excited I was able to find a course that was interesting to study and be able to stay at home.

    WAAPA Performing Arts graduate

    "The best part of being at WAAPA is having the access and privilege of being taught by some incredible teachers, being surrounded by creativity day in and day out and having the space to fail"

    The arts industry in Australia is benefitting from some very clever, creative young theatre makers. Makers that I am extremely proud to be in the WAAPA alumni pool with.
