South West Study
South West Campus at ECU
Our South West Campus at Bunbury is Western Australia’s largest university campus outside the Perth metropolitan area.
Here you can study courses in business, health sciences, nursing, teaching, science and social work.
You can also complete a University Preparation course or explore your entry options as an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander student.
ECU is at the centre of education and health in the South West.
We share a precinct with South West Regional College of TAFE, Manea Senior College, the Rural Clinical School, South West Aboriginal Medical Service, Bunbury Regional Hospital and St John of God Hospital.
We also have strong links with the surrounding South West community. This helps us provide our students with invaluable industry placement opportunities and the practical 'hands on' skills that ECU is known for.

Getting to campus
"The level of personal attention offered by SW staff is hard to beat"
Nursing student Lachie came to ECU via UniPrep and is now fulfilling a dream by studying at university in the place he loves.
"I love the classroom experiences we get at ECU South West"
Primary Education student Rebecca is bringing her two passions together - teaching and children - while studying near her home town of Bunbury.
"I love the atmosphere of being on campus; everyone is really friendly"
I chose ECU partly because it was close to home, but also because I'd heard good things from my friends who had studied here previously.
I have wanted to do nursing and Paramedicine since I was a kid. Once I decided I wanted to go to university, I did a UniPrep course at ECU and got accepted into nursing. I hope to complete the paramedic course next.
In the short time I've studied nursing, the skills I learnt through UniPrep, such as referencing, have proven valuable.
I have studied as both an online student and on campus. I love the atmosphere of being on campus; everyone is really friendly.
