Pathway to Edith Cowan University

  • Edith Cowan University (ECU) is an Australian public university located in Perth, Western Australia. It was named after the first woman to be elected to an Australian Parliament, Edith Cowan, and is the only Australian university named after a woman. It’s also one of the world’s best young universities under 50 years old. But being young has never stopped ECU from making its mark on the higher education landscape.
  • ECU is situated in Western Australia, with more than 30,000 students at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, approximately 6,000 international students originating from over 100 countries outside Australia.
  • ECU was granted university status in 1991 and was formed from an amalgamation of teachers’ colleges with a history dating back to 1902 when the Claremont Teachers College was established, making ECU the modern descendant of the first institution of higher education in Western Australia.
  • Whether you’re an Australian or international student, you’ll benefit from ECU’s long and successful partnership with ECC through our established academic and English entry pathways.
  • ECU provides the ideal learning environment for people who want to make a difference in the world. Our industry-relevant courses, supportive study environment and world-class facilities enable ECU students to become truly world-ready.
  • ECU courses are developed in consultation with industry, and teaching staff have extensive industry experience and networks. It’s why ECU students can expect placement opportunities, fieldwork, practicums and networking events as part of their studies.
  • This approach has been recognised through 5-star ratings for teaching quality for fourteen years in a row in the Good Universities Guide.


  • For an amazing fourteen years in a row, the university’s teaching quality has been rated 5-stars by graduates in the annual Good Universities Guide (2008-2021).
  • We’ve also been ranked Australia’s best public university for undergraduate teaching quality and skills development for five straight years, according to the government’s annual QILT (Quality Indicators for Teaching and Learning) survey.
