Edith Cowan University (ECU) encourages you as a student to broaden your skills, knowledge and intercultural awareness by undertaking part of your study overseas.
Overseas study gives you the opportunity to travel while gaining credit towards your degree; it widens your horizons intellectually, culturally and socially; it provides plenty of opportunities for personal growth; and improves your employment options. It looks great on any résumé, which may give you a competitive edge in a tight employment market.
