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 Lecturers and Tutors do attend classes without fail, are very supportive and Knowledgeable of the units they are teachings. We are also provided with links to reference books that actually exist in the library, and can contact the lecturers/tutors at any time for consultations, clarifications or other general help. Overall, this sets up a good environment for one to succeed

Negatives: I can say that the cost of tuition fees is a bit high, more so if you are an international student. There is also arbitrary increase in fees by up to $500 or more for each semester . So that's the most tricky part of sustaining study.

My advice to future students is: I would advise future potential students that they should be prepared to work hard, have an open mind and have adequate funds for sustaining your stay in Australia since the bills are too much e,g, rent, food, transport etc.

The course I am taking is master of engineering major in civil. The best aspect of this course is that it will give us vast knowledge in engineering products and markets there by helping us move forward in our career. However, as the course is general, it touches all the engineering subjects in brief only. We cannot specialise in a particular field. Thus, if one is looking to become an expert in one specific area then this course is not the best option.

My advice to future students is: Only advice I would like to give the new prospective student is ECU is best if you are opting to study business or any undergraduate course as there are many options to choose. But if you are a master of engineering student and looking to specialise I one particular area then you got to think wise. Nevertheless, ECU has perfect student support systems as well as teaching faculties.
