Hands-on, experiential and impactful


In a world defined by rapid advancements in medical science and health innovation, the demand for skilled and dedicated professionals has never been more critical, especially as the global population expands along with new health and environmental challenges. Edith Cowan University (ECU) is leading the way in responding to these challenges by training students to become proficient and compassionate medical and health science practitioners who can enhance the lives of others in a changing world — starting by making a wide range of its five-star qualifications accessible to all. 

Committed to academic excellence, the School of Medical and Health Sciences conducts dynamic teaching and performs impactful research in Medical and Biomedical Sciences, Allied Health, and Exercise and Sports Sciences, as well as in Public, Occupational and Environmental Health. Its programmes can be pursued in a flexible online format, enabling students to join from any corner of the world. While most offerings are entirely online, a select few may entail occasional in-person attendance, particularly for workshops and practical sessions. 

This combination lets students immerse themselves in the school’s vibrant campus in Perth, Western Australia for a concentrated two-week period. It’s a seamless integration of study, work and life — of course, with a raft of support services available should anyone need help, guidance or advice. Online classes are designed to be interactive, experiential and inclusive.

Learn to enhance the quality of people’s lives, from anywhere in the world

Ensuring every international student feels at home

With a knack for innovative techniques, it’s easy to understand why ECU ranked in the world's top 100 universities under 50 years old in the Times Higher Education Young Universities Rankings 2023 and among the top 400 universities in the world by the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2024. 

Academics aside, ECU is equally excellent in creating a home away from home for international students to grow, learn, and build connections that last a lifetime. On campus, they can come together over coffee and afternoon tea at the International Café, a space reserved for them to learn and share experiences about life and study in Australia. It even hosts guest speakers to share valuable information about services and activities available to students. It's this holistic approach that sets ECU apart and makes it a top choice for creative thinkers and aspiring world-changers from around the world.
