Online Study at ECU
Choose the flexibility of studying online for many of our courses. This includes online degrees in areas like nursing, psychology, law, nutrition and masters courses.
At ECU we understand that everyone has different work arrangements, different family responsibilities, different locations or even different learning styles.
So why not balance your study with family and/or work commitments?
Not being on campus doesn't mean we'll forget you either. Over 5,000 of our students are studying online courses, and they're well supported too.
At ECU you can study online degrees, diplomas and even some doctorates.
Some of our courses are ideal for distance study as they're completely online.
Others, like Engineering or Paramedicine for example, have practical, hands-on units that require you to spend some time on-campus and/or on an industry-specific placement.
Theory-based units can be completed online to complement the ones you have to complete on-campus.
"The knowledge I have learned has really improved my capabilities and I have noticed a confidence in my practice"
I am currently working in physiotherapy and wanted to specialise in neurological rehabilitation. I chose ECU as it was the only university in WA offering postgrad studies designed for increasing knowledge in neurological rehabilitation.
I am enjoying studying online and the weekly modules are motivating. The content is relevant and thought provoking, and there are are plenty of opportunities to collaborate with peers using the discussion board.

"Combining work with online postgrad study"
Master of Clinical Nursing student Anhnie Nguyen talks about combining online study at ECU with her nursing work.
"The content covered in class has allowed me to better engage with my clients and further develop myself as a clinician"
I am an Occupational Therapist with a strong background in mental health, sub-acute and community services. Studying Neurological Rehabilitation at ECU really opens my career options in acute environments and provides the opportunity to specialise in an area I am passionate to work in.
Having the flexibility to complete the course online, with only some required face-to-face contact has been fantastic. It has provided me the opportunity to commence studies again by allowing me to fit study around work and other commitments.
ECU has a sound reputation for education and the staff have been supportive and encouraging. They are responsive to queries and continuously provide constructive and supportive feedback.
The content covered in class has allowed me to better engage with my clients and further develop myself as a clinician. It enables online interactions with peers and is a platform to network and share knowledge with one-another.
