UniPrep at ECU
ECU is a leader in finding ways for people to get into University.
Especially people who thought it would be mission impossible to get a uni degree.
If you didn't get a great score in Year 12, haven't been at school for a while, or don't have any formal qualifications, UniPrep is an opportunity to change your future.
Our UniPrep courses are open to school leavers and mature age students – and they're mostly free.
If you're successful, you'll be eligible for entry into many of our degree courses.

You can also choose to attend classes on-campus, study online, or a combination of both.
"UniPrep helped me jump right into my degree"
UniPrep graduate Savanna didn’t study for an ATAR in Year 12, but found the course a great introduction to university and to the skills she needed to start a bachelors degree.
"ECU’s Indigenous University Orientation Course helped me get into University"
I have found ECU to be an adventure with opportunities to learn new and different things. Making friends has been awesome. It has helped because I have had a lot of support and help from people around me. My tutors have given me confidence in myself and my abilities. I’ve learnt I can try new things if I set my mind to it and take it step by step. It has given me the skills and confidence to be successful with my studies.
