The commencement of the ECU Excellence Scholarship cannot be deferred. Offers are expected to be made in the January of each year and the student is expected to enrol and commence their study in the first semester of that same year of study.

*Duration of Course - ECU undergraduate courses are generally 3 or 4 years full time study (based on completing 60 credit points per semester) or the equivalent part time. The scholarship's total value is calculated on the duration of the course enrolled in at the time the scholarship offer is made, up to a maximum of $20,000.

If a recipient changes units/course during the life of the scholarship, which then extends the completion/ duration of the course, the scholarship will not be extended.
