As part of your preparation for the start of uni, you should acquaint yourself with some logistics – like finding the best way to get to a campus, and then finding the building/room you need.

Lots of students choose to drive to a campus, but this can get tricky at times, especially when the carparks fill up.

We encourage everyone to think about sustainable transport when travelling to and from campus, and fortunately we're easily accessible by public transport.

Here's a useful starting point to help with your travel planning. It includes interactive maps that let you search and zoom in to find specific locations and routes. We also have access and mobility maps to help people make informed choices about safe and accessible routes to and from campus, and while on campus.

Student concession for public transport

If you're enrolled as a full-time student at ECU you'll qualify for a Transperth student concession.

For starters, your SmartRider needs to be combined with your ECU Student ID card.

You'll then need to complete a consent declaration to activate your concession.

What does
that mean?
Here's a quick guide to some of the things we mention during the Preparing stage.
  • If you're enrolled in 3 or more units in a semester this is considered full-time study. To complete most 3-year degrees studying full-time you'll need to complete 4 units per semester, i.e. 24 units over 3 years.

    Note: If you're an International student on a student visa, you must enrol in a full-time study load, usually 4 units or 60 credit points.

  • The majority of undergraduate study units at ECU are worth 15 credit points. You can find out the credit point value of your units by checking the handbook.

    Full-time study is when you're enrolled in 45 credit points or more. This is generally three or more units per semester.

    Part-time study is when you're enrolled in less than 45 credit points. This is generally one or two units per semester.

    Note: If you're an International student on a student visa, you must enrol in a full-time study load, usually 4 units or 60 credit points.
