The International Accommodation bursary recognizes that the cost of living in Australia is significantly greater compared to the cost of living in other countries. The scholarship provides a discount in lodging expenses of up to fifty percent to students who sign a contract to live at the ECU Mount Lawley Student Village for either twenty-two or forty-four weeks.
This option will be made available to new international students who have been accepted to ECU and who want to attend classes on campus beginning in the year 2023. Additionally, returning ECU students who had to start their on-campus course online (because to COVID-19 travel restrictions) and who would be studying on-campus for the very first time in the subsequent semester are eligible for this Bursary.
About the Scholarship Sponsor:
Perth, in the Australian state of Western Australia, is home to Edith Cowan University, a public institution of higher education. The university can trace its roots back to Claremont Teachers College, which opened in 1902 and was the first higher learning establishment in Western Australia. Over the next few years, several other colleges, such as Mount Lawley Teachers College, Churchlands Teachers College, and Nedlands College of Advanced Education, followed in its footsteps. When these two schools merged in 1982, it created what is now known as the Western Australian College of Advanced Education. It was granted university status on January 1, 1991, and was subsequently renamed Edith Cowan University in honor of its namesake.
The Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA), the School of Business and Law, the School of Arts and Humanities, the School of Medicine, Health, and Allied Sciences, the School of Nursing and Midwifery, the School of Science, and the School of Medicine and Health all contribute to the university’s extensive curriculum of more than 400 courses across a hundred disciplines.
The University provides a wide variety of academic programs, including but not limited to the following: business, law, communication, arts and humanities, psychology, social sciences, social work, criminology, justice, early childhood, primary, and secondary education teaching, all branches of engineering, exercise and health sciences, medical science, biomedical science, speech pathology and paramedicine, nursing and midwifery, biology and environmental sciences, mathematics, physics, and more.
More than that, this university is home to numerous research facilities. A trio of research institutions focusing on business and society, the Centre for Innovative Practice, Markets and Services Research Centre, and Markets and Services Research Centre. At the University of California, Los Angeles is the Center for Research in Entertainment, Arts, Technology, Education, and Communications, which focuses on the intersections between these fields and their application to the study of communications and the creative arts. There is a center dedicated to studying law and social change called the Sellenger Centre for Research in Law, Justice, and Social Change. One of the many organizations focusing on improving the health of children and families is the Centre for Nursing, Midwifery, and Health Services.
This school has a substantial presence in the environmental and sustainability fields, as evidenced by the presence of the Ecosystem Management Centre, the Marine Ecosystems Research Center, the Natural Resources Modelling and Simulation Research Group, and the Western Australian Marine Science Institution on its campus. Among the many prestigious research centers and institutes housed at this university are the Western Australian Centre of Excellence for Comparative Genomics, the Exercise Medicine Research Institute, the Exercise and Sports Science Research Group, Melanoma Research, the Centre of Excellence for Alzheimer’s Disease Research and Care, and the Exercise and Sports Science Research Group. The university’s security, law, and justice programs include the ECU Security Research Institute, the Sellenger Centre for Research in Law and Justice, and the Social Change Institute.
Mount Lawley and Joondalup are two of the university’s metropolitan campuses in Perth, and there is also a campus in Bunbury, 200 kilometers south of Perth, to accommodate the growing South West Region of Western Australia.
