Edith Cowan University
Top quality teaching and highly satisfied graduates.That's how university should be.

Edith Cowan University (ECU) is a large, multi-campus institution serving communities in Western Australia and internationally. The University has two metropolitan campuses at Mount Lawley and Joondalup, and also serves Western Australia’s South West Region from a campus at Bunbury, 200 km south of Perth.
ECU was awarded university status in 1991, but despite this apparent youth, the University has a proud history of more than a century of service to education in Western Australia and has become recognised for its teaching and learning, excellence in research and partnerships with the community.

With almost 23,000 students at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, ECU is the second largest university in the state. Approximately 3,600 of these are international students originating from more than 104 countries.
ECU offers study paths to prepare students for the real world with the right balance of practical knowledge and academic excellence. More than 320 courses are offered across four faculties.

For the past six years ECU has received five star ratings for teaching quality and graduate satisfaction in the annual Good Universities Guide.

ECU has advanced standing arrangements with Singaporean institutes such as Nanyan Polytechnic, Singapore Polytechnic, Republic Polytechnic and Temasek Polytechnic.
