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.
