Some info on Edith Cowan University

Edith Cowan University (ECU) has 2 campuses in Perth, Mount Lawley and Joondalup as well as a regional campus located in Bunbury, south of Perth.

According to our 2018 University rankings, ECU ranks #5. We have a range of Edith Cowan University reviews across different undergraduate and postgraduate courses as well as different topics, including Arts, Engineering, IT, Commerce, Science and Health.

Based on the ECU student reviews that we've collected, here's some advice for future students:
Prepare your week, be organised and don't fall behind or leave things to the last minute;
Consider the Uni prep course, it will give you a better understanding than school does;
If you can, look for opportunities to work in your industry while studying, it's better to grow a network before you finish;
Utilise the teaching staff/faculties - ask questions, understand better and find out about placement opportunities;
Don't cram - try to study during the term session;
Make use of the student support services & systems;
If there's an industry trip or networking night, make sure you go, ask questions and get peoples contact details.

Positives: The positives of my course is that not many people do it, giving me a competitive edge in the industry

Negatives: The negatives are that you can only do it in Perth on campus. There is no course flexibility for those with full time jobs or those who wish to complete the course and live interstate or overseas, because their job has taken them there.
There is also very little flexibility with units that you can do online. And the staff and unit coordinators are not much help in tailoring the course to people who have established careers

My advice to future students is: This course is not worth the time unless you live in Perth. Don’t make any special move over to study as you are on campus roughly 7hours a week and there is very little theatre or performing arts work outside of Uni, so I am unable to work in my field when I’m not at uni
