Short Courses for Credit Program

ECU’s School of Arts and Humanities invites you to join our Short Courses for Credit Program. These FREE courses are designed to introduce high school students to university life, offer an engaging, hands-on experience in a discipline of their choice and give them a head start at university. Our short courses are aimed at motivated year 11 and 12 students who have an existing interest and passion for the Arts and/or Media. These week-long specialist courses cover areas of study offered at ECU, promoting aspirations for tertiary education. Students gain a deeper understanding of the  way university works, helping them to overcome any anxiety they might have about higher education.

Students develop self-confidence and public speaking skills, team work and group collaboration techniques and produce high quality written and digital works. They expand on skills that support their school work and come to discover that university is an option they might not have considered  before. Importantly, students who pass the requirements of these courses will receive Advanced Standing (credit) for a first/second year unit once gaining successful admission to an applicable ECU undergraduate course. This means students will save time and money before even commencing their university studies.
