What's new

What's new

In light of the Covid-19 pandemic and the ongoing restrictions to regular activities, Edith Cowan College has implemented a number of changes to ensure that it continues to deliver high-quality education to its students, as well as keeping them safe and secure as circumstances evolve.

The college has introduced a range of support services to assist students during this challenging period. These services have also been carefully migrated to an online virtual environment to allow students and staff to access them safely. This includes personal, academic, or financial support. In order to access some services, evidence of certain circumstances or hardship must be provided alongside a student's application for the service in question.

The college's Student and Academic Services team (SAS) is always on hand and available to for students of ECC.

In response to the possibility that some students will experience difficulty in accessing computer and digital resources at home, the college has ensured that all students can freely access Edith Cowan University's computers and complimentary Wi-Fi network across all ECU sites from 8am to 8pm every day.

The college has also provided a number of specific financial support packages in response to the Covid-19 crisis and associated disruption, and is committed to ensuring that students in need are able to access them.

Entry requirements

Entry requirements

Prospective students who wish to apply for entry into Edith Cowan College will be assessed according to their academic background and achievements to date, in addition to their English language proficiency. The college also accepts applications from mature-aged students and may admit them with an advanced academic standing if they demonstrate relevant professional or academic experience in their application.

All courses and diploma programs at Edith Cowan College are taught in English. As a result, applicants to an ECC course must demonstrate a minimum of English language proficiency before they will be admitted to an ECC program.

The college accepts several methods for demonstrating English language proficiency, including submission of evidence of Year 12 Australian studies or equivalent IELTS Test Scores. Alternatively, Pearson English Test scores or other equivalents are also accepted. The minimum required scores will differ according to the grading method employed by each English test type.

For mature aged students aged 20 or more, acceptance into a program without satisfying the formal academic requirements may be considered in some circumstances. In order to achieve this, the applicant will need to submit their application through portfolio entry and must accompany their application with documentary evidence of their work experience, an up to date CV, and a written personal statement. Other support documents may be required depending on the program selected.
