What can you study here?
To help our students with a career direction, we group similar fields of work into study areas.
Within each study area below you can choose an undergraduate or postgraduate degree. And within most degree courses, you can choose your speciality, or major subject.
World Ready Experience
We equip you with the confidence and practical skills to deal with whatever challenges may come your way, no matter where you are in the world.
Stay longer on your student visa
From November 2019, international students may be eligible to stay in Western Australia for three years after completing their undergraduate or postgraduate study.
A post-study work visa may give you the opportunity to gain more work experience and you could be eligible for skills assessments required for a skilled visa application.
There may also be an opportunity for you to apply for a limited number of scholarships, providing up to $15,000 per year to support study and living expenses. For ECU, the scholarship would require you to study at our South West Campus in Bunbury.
Note: These announcements are a positive development for international students interested in studying in Perth, but are subject to change as they are formally implemented by the relevant state and federal government departments.

"This place is definitely a home away from home"
I have been working as a marketing professional for over six years in the Philippines. That is why I chose to study Marketing and Innovation Management to enhance my marketing skills and acquire knowledge on an international level. I chose ECU because I know Filipino friends who have studied here, had a great experience, and they feel really at home in this university.
I have made a lot of friends in this university, who all come from diverse backgrounds, and they bring out a great atmosphere in my learning experience. Most importantly, the lecturers are organised and highly professional; they have constantly guided me in my studies, and some I have considered as mentors in my career.
The thing I love about Perth is that everything I love is very close to me. The lifestyle is mainly spending your free time outdoors. This place is definitely a home away from home.
"ECU has the best engineering laboratory facilities in Western Australia"
I chose ECU for its high-quality teaching standards and world-class laboratory facilities. I was interested in mathematics and physics in high school. However, the main inspiration behind choosing electrical engineering was my passion for renewable energy.
ECU provides a very friendly environment for studies, the classes are smaller which allows lecturers and student to engage in an effective manner. I also joined a couple of academic and social clubs at university and made so many good friends and industry connections.
I took an internship program in my last semester and I’m still working with that company. It is an amazing experience to realise that the concepts and theories which I learn at the university have numerous applications in real life.
The best features of Perth are its weather and very friendly people. I like to hang out with friends and colleagues, do rock climbing, go to the beach and play badminton.
ECU has the best engineering laboratory facilities in Western Australia. I would strongly encourage local and international students to choose ECU and pursue their career in STEM.
"I feel safe and a sense of belonging when I am at ECU"
I chose ECU for biomedical science because it has a flexible course structure. In my three years of studies, I was allowed to take units that interest me as electives, while also completing compulsory (core) units. It enhanced my whole study experience.
The atmosphere at ECU is inclusive and has a community feeling to it. I feel safe and a sense of belonging when I am at ECU. Lecturers are very engaging and approachable which helped me keep track on my studies. They are knowledgeable and passionate about the things they do.
If you are an international student who is new to ECU, get yourself involved as much as you can in whatever interests you. Help is always available and there are people ready to advocate for you if you need them. Join a club or a University activity, volunteer your time and put yourself out there!
