Study courses online

At ECU, we understand that many people want to study, but have commitments like work and family that can make it hard to get to lectures.

It's why many of our undergraduate courses can be studied online.

  • "Field experience and flexibility"
    Holly WinkleMarine and Freshwater Biology student

    Environmental Science and Marine and Biology student Holly Winkle talks about having the flexibility to study across disciplines.

  • "My ECU degree gave me the flexibility to gain a wide range of skills that enable success in the world of business"
    Kohen Grogan
    Kohen GroganECU Communication graduate & Founder, Yappy Group

    The reason I chose a Bachelor of Communication at ECU was because I didn't really know what I wanted to do. There was flexibility within the course – instead of forcing me to specialise straight away, I had the chance to try a range of disciplines and then pick the areas I was most interested in.

    I even did some acting units from WAAPA. Being able to communicate effectively and speak in public is such an important skill to learn.

  • "WAAPA’s Arts Management course really helped me find my place in the arts industry"
    WAAPA Arts Management graduate, Harriet Roberts

    I have always craved an active role within the performing arts, but had no idea in what capacity this could be, I trusted the course to guide me in the right direction, and it did.

    For me, the course operated in a two-fold way through building my theoretical knowledge of the practicalities of arts administration in the lecture room, and in pushing me to volunteer in intern positions in the industry to gain practical experience.

    It was so beneficial to have the WAAPA name behind me when seeking these opportunities for development, enabling me to expand my networks and connections in the local industry. Ultimately, this led to my current position of Associate Producer at the Blue Room Theatre.
