ECU signs MoU with Norvic Institute

Friday, 20 July 2012


Edith Cowan University (ECU) has signed a first-of-its-kind Memorandum of Understanding with the Norvic Institute of Nursing Education that will give Nepalese students the opportunity to study in Australia.

Under the terms of the MoU, nursing students from Nepal will study part of the international program at Norvic’s Kathmandu campus and finish the remaining portion of the course at ECU’s Western Australian campuses.

Students successfully completing the course will be awarded a degree by ECU.

ECU Deputy Vice-Chancellor (International) and President Professor Tony Watson announced the MoU at a meeting with Norvic representatives in Kathmandu today.

“This Memorandum of Understanding is an exciting opportunity for both ECU and Norvic,” Professor Watson said.

“Not only does it provide a unique chance for Nepalese students to expand their studies by studying abroad in Australia, but it paves the way for closer links between the two institutions. We look forward to developing further opportunities with Norvic, which could include study tours and staff and student exchange.”

ECU’s runs the largest undergraduate nursing program in Western Australia. The Bachelor of Science (Nursing) program includes unique training innovations, including scenario-based learning, ‘real life’ simulations and resources such as DVDs for self-directed learning.
