At ECU, we are guided by our values of integrity, respect, rational inquiry, and personal excellence. Our focus on teaching and research is inspired by engagement and partnerships with those in the many communities we were established to serve. Research at ECU extends knowledge and improves the quality of life for Australians and people across the globe. Our research priorities focus on solving real-world problems across social, economic, physical, and environmental domains.

Established in 1991, ECU has multiplied into a quality university with excellent student satisfaction and internationally recognized research. Students and graduates at ECU are amongst the best globally, with many fulfilling crucial roles in our society. Their outstanding achievements have been recognized throughout Australia and internationally through awards, grants, scholarships, and prizes.

ECU is committed to widening participation and breaking down barriers that restrict entry to education. We are continuing our work on the enhancement and development of alternative entry pathways to higher education. We are a university that values diversity, and this is exemplified by our multicultural student cohort spanning a wide range of ages. We also support gender equality, and ECU is advancing this commitment through our membership of the Athena SWAN Charter in Australia.

Edith Cowan University (ECU) provides the ideal learning environment for people who want to reach their potential. Located in Western Australia, our industry-relevant teaching and research, supportive study environment, and award-winning facilities enable ECU students to do more than survive in this world – they thrive in it.

ECU courses are developed in consultation with industry, and teaching staff has extensive industry experience and networks. It is why ECU students can expect placement opportunities, fieldwork, practicums, and networking events as part of their studies. This approach has been rewarded with five-star ratings for teaching quality over the past eleven years, along with consistently high ratings for overall education experience and skills development, as reported in the Good Universities Guide.

ECU has more than 30,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students. We also annually welcome close to 6,000 international students originating from more than 100 countries. Our eight Schools collectively deliver more than 250 diverse courses across Medical & Health Sciences, Engineering, Education, Arts & Humanities, Business & Law, Nursing & Midwifery, Science, and the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts.

ECU incorporates the world-renowned Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, the oldest and most popular School of Education in Western Australia, the most extensive Nursing program in the State, and Kurongkurl Katitjin, our Centre for Australian Indigenous Education and Research. Guided by our strategic goals, ECU builds on our reputation for excellence in teaching, developing the quality and volume of our research outputs, and increasing international programs and collaborations.
