About Edith Cowan University
ECU is located over three campuses in beautiful Western Australia. Two are in metropolitan Perth, and the other is 200kms away in the south west region of Bunbury. ECU's headquarters are at the stunning Joondalup campus, 25km north of Perth. Facilities here include a new Health and Wellness building, multi-million dollar sport and fitness centre, award-winning library and student hub, outdoor cinema and student accommodation.
The Mount Lawley campus is close to the Perth CBD and is home to extensive media training and performing arts facilities, a sport and fitness centre, and student accommodation. The campus also hosts the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA), one of Australia's most successful arts training institutions. (A certain Mr Hugh Jackman is one of our most notable alumni!)
Last but not least, the South West campus is located in Bunbury, which is a two-hour drive south of Perth. It's the largest university campus outside of Perth, and features modern facilities plus a comprehensive range of courses and student accommodation. ECU offers the following eight teaching schools:
- Business and Law
- Arts and Humanities
- Medical and Health Sciences
- Nursing and Midwifery
- Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts.
ECU's state-of-the-art technology and facilities are second to none. In addition, every course that ECU offers is developed in close consultation with industry, with teaching staff also having extensive industry experience and networks.
ECU's close connections with industry groups and professional bodies enable students to experience work placements, fieldwork, networking events and volunteering opportunities, and to complete their studies 'job ready'. ECU is very proud to have been ranked in the world's top 150 universities under 50 years old in the 2018 Young Universities Rankings (formerly known as the Times Higher Education 150 under 50).
ECU is equally proud that in The Good Universities Guide, our students have given us a 5-star rating for teaching quality eleven years in a row. ECU students and graduates are among the best in the world, with many fulfilling crucial roles in our society. Their outstanding achievements have been recognised not only in Australia, but internationally, through awards, grants, scholarships and prizes
