How to get into ECU

If you are currently studying Year 12, we've compiled all the information you need to know about our ATAR and non ATAR pathways, which are applicable to current Year 12s

Alternatively, if you have already completed year 12 and will be under the age of 20 either:

There are several entry pathways you can use to gain admission into undergraduate courses at ECU as a school leaver.
