ECU Study Abroad and Exchange Program
The ECU Study Abroad and Exchange Program offers an enriching international experience that can help you reach your potential through broadening your academic, professional and personal horizons.
Through the ECU Study Abroad and Exchange Program, you can study at ECU for one or two semesters as part of your degree in your home country.
The ECU Study Abroad and Exchange Program attracts over 100 international students each year from many countries, including Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, England, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Taiwan and the United States.
If your home university has an official exchange agreement with ECU, you can apply through your home university to be nominated to ECU as an exchange student. As an exchange student at ECU, you continue to pay your tuition fees to your home university while on exchange and you would not pay any tuition fees to ECU. You should contact the International Office at your home university for further information on how you can be nominated to ECU as an exchange student.
Study abroad students
If your home university does not have an official exchange agreement with ECU or if your home institution is unable to offer you an exchange place at ECU, you could apply to study at ECU as a study abroad student. Study abroad students pay a set study abroad tuition fee per semester to ECU, which is subject to annual change.
We offer a diverse range of units across eight broad study areas:
