Why Study at ECU?
ECU is one of the world’s best young universities*
We’re young and we’re curious. We’re constantly scanning what’s happening in the world to help us design courses that are challenging and practical.
To keep things real, we develop our programs by consulting with industry groups and others who know what’s needed from the next wave of graduates.
And our students don’t spend all their time in classrooms. There are field trips, work placements with employers, networking events, international study tours and opportunities to study overseas at other unis.
That’s how university should be.
