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.
Say hello to your new future!
We offer three kinds of UniPrep course at ECU. Apart from our general course, there's one for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander school leavers and one for aspiring educators. And because we understand you need flexibility, UniPrep courses can be studied in as little as 6 months full-time or 12 months part-time. You can also choose to attend classes on-campus, study online, or a combination of both.
"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.
"Everyone works together for a common learning goal"
The Bachelor of Aviation course is the only one of its kind offered in Western Australia. The facilities at ECU are amazing, the way that everyone works together for a common learning goal is very apparent. Many people notice this if they have studied at different universities.
A work placement with Virgin Australia Regional Airlines gave me an insight into their operations department, an amazing experience to see how they handled problems. There are so many people working behind the scenes that you don’t normally consider when a passenger boards a flight.
As a mature age student, I took the University Preparation Course. I feel my UniPrep lecturers and tutors were very good at setting a positive university framework from early on in the program.
I love being a university student, these memories I will treasure for the rest of my life! I feel so excited about what the future will hold.
"My ECU studies have taught me that hard work pays off"
My study experience has been amazing and I am grateful for the connections I have built with friends from my futsal team, who I now consider my family.
I first began my journey with ECU through the Indigenous University Orientation Course. This pathway gave me the guidance and time to help me pick a career I am passionate about.
The lecturers offer great support and will always do their best to help you out when you need.
My ECU studies have taught me that hard work pays off and I am proving that more and more each semester, as I get closer to the end of my studies.
