Edith Cowan University encourages students to strive for personal excellence in all aspects of their life. The University recognises and promotes the value of combining both sporting and academic aspirations. This is why ECU is a member of the Elite Athlete Friendly University (EAFU) network. As an Elite Athlete Friendly University ECU has an agreement with the Australian Sports Commission to support elite athletes in achieving and balancing both their academic and sporting pursuits.
There are currently many elite athletes studying at ECU who are engaged nationally and internationally in a broad range of sports including AFL football, water polo, soccer, netball, athletics, swimming, cycling, golf, rowing, volleyball, hockey and wheelchair sports.
