The Faculty of Regional Professional Studies is located at ECU’s South West Campus (Bunbury), Western Australia’s largest university campus outside the metropolitan area. We offer a comprehensive range of courses in arts, business, nursing, teacher education, and social work.
We pride ourselves on our continual engagement with the South West community providing our students with invaluable industry opportunities and gaining the practical 'hands on' skills that ECU is so well known for. Our advanced facilities, combined with small class sizes and on-campus accommodation, allow you to apply your newfound knowledge immediately, giving you the extra edge and confidence needed when you go out into the work force.
We believe in integrating teaching, learning, research and engagement to maximise the value of activities on our campus, providing a supportive environment on which students can achieve and create.
