Who WAS eDIth CoWAN?

Born in 1861 in Glengarry, near Geraldton, Edith

Dircksey Cowan believed education was the key to growth, change and improvement. Edith’s contribution to the development of Western Australian education was significant. She strove to achieve social justice and campaigned for the rights of women, children and families, for the poor, the poorly educated, and the elderly. So it is fitting that the oldest education institution and newest state university, Edith Cowan University, bears her name. 2011 marks the 150th anniversary of

Edith’s birth and the 90th anniversary of her election to parliament.

StuDYINg IN perth

Perth, the capital of Western Australia (WA), is one of Australia’s most affluent cities.

Situated on the banks of the Swan River, Perth is a beautiful, friendly and safe city packed with boutiques, art galleries, eateries and cafés, cinemas, nightclubs and music venues.

The weather is fantastic, with a Mediterranean climate with hot dry summers (December to

February) and mild wet winters (June to August); perfect for sporting and leisure activities, everything from tennis to golf through to whale watching and sailing.

You can catch a game of cricket, Aussie Rules football or rugby at one of Perth’s sporting stadiums and, with over 80 kilometres of clean white sandy and uncrowded beaches, Perth is ideal for swimming and surfing.

Perth has reliable, convenient, and safe public transportation, which includes buses, trains and ferries. Free buses get you around the Perth Central

Business District (CBD) as well as in Joondalup (where

ECU’s head campus is located).

Perth is a vibrant sophisticated city and is the closest

Australian capital to many cities in Asia, Africa and

Europe, with a standard of living that is amongst the highest in Australia and the world.

Our students have access to 24-hour on-campus computing facilities, enabling you to carry out study or research at a time convenient to you. ECU students have access to the latest and best wireless technology whilst on campus.

off-CAmpuS Support

ECU offers courses available in the Off-Campus Mode to support opportunities for students whose circumstances do not permit them to come to Australia to study.

Indeed, as an international student, you are able to study ECU courses that are available in the Off-Campus Mode, if you do so from your home country. This means that if you decide to study an ECU course in the Off-Campus Mode, you will not travel to Australia so you will not need to apply for an Australian

Student Visa.

Students are supported through mailing services from the library, telephone and email-supported services like counselling and career advice, and online access to enrolment tools and unit materials. Visit

www.reachyourpotential.com.au/off-campus-study

for more information.

fAmILY frIeNDLY eCu

ECU is a family friendly University, committed to ensuring students with family responsibilities have full access to education, employment and other services. We offer services to assist parents on campus, including childcare (Joondalup and Mount

Lawley), parenting rooms (Joondalup and Mount Lawley), a crèche (Joondalup) and the ECU Kids Holiday Program

(Joondalup and Mount Lawley).

SChooLINg of DepeNDeNtS of eCu StuDeNtS

If you intend to bring dependent children to Australia, you will need to consider specific arrangements for their visas and schooling. In Australia, it is compulsory for school aged children

(6 – 17 years of age) to attend school.

Cost

If you are studying an Undergraduate Course or a Graduate

Diploma, you must enrol your child in either government or private schools on a fee-paying basis. You are required to pay the school fees directly to the school prior to your child’s enrolment.

Some school tuition fees are voluntary in Primary Schools, and in Lower Secondary / Secondary Schools the fees vary according to individual subject selection. Optional courses of study and excursions will attract additional costs. You will also be required to pay for your child’s school uniforms and school books.

English as a Second Language

If your child is enrolled in a public or private school and requires either English as a Second Language or learning difficulty / disability support, you will need to pay for these additional expenses. Neither ECU nor Education and Training International will cover these fees. These fees can be AUD2000 or more, per child / per year.

These costs will vary and may involve your child moving to a school, specifically designed to provide the required support.

We recommend that your child commences English language training prior to arriving in Perth.

When it comes to studies in the Environmental Science area,

ECU’s world class research in Environmental Science (ERA

2011) and recognised excellence in teaching ( The Good

Universities Guide 2011) leaves other universities green with envy. You will find a range of relevant and practical degrees that can lead to distinctly different careers in fields such as

Biological Sciences, Environmental Management, Chemistry,

Conservation and Wildlife Biology, Marine Biology and more.

NeW eNVIroNmeNtAL CourSeS

In 2011, ECU created two new courses to meet the demand for environmentally focused courses.

bACheLor of SCIeNCe (eNVIroNmeNtAL mANAgemeNt)

„

The strong management focus of this course prepares graduates for careers in government agencies and industries which deal with conservation of biodiversity, environmental impact assessment, environmental planning, and the management and rehabilitation of specific ecosystems such as wetlands, forests, coastlines and arid regions.

bACheLor of SCIeNCe (eNVIroNmeNtAL

SCIeNCe)

„

Provides graduates with practical and relevant skills that prepare them for work as environmental professionals in a variety of roles including consulting, industrial development, regulation, and research. Key strengths of graduates in this course include investigation skills, monitoring experience and application of management techniques for environmental problems.

See page 26 for more details on these courses.

reAL-WorLD experIeNCe

Our students are immersed in a stimulating and highly supportive teaching and learning environment. All courses are structured to have a strong practical component and most include a requirement for students to be involved in work experience practice. Industry professionals are regularly brought in to give guest lectures, and students are exposed to the ‘real-world’ in the laboratory and on field trips. Our students also get the chance to conduct research that will benefit the community and ecosystem.

teAChINg AND LeArNINg exCeLLeNCe

ECU is committed to teaching and learning excellence and boasts a five-star rating for Teaching Quality and

Graduate Satisfaction in the 2011 Good Universities Guide.

In the areas of teaching quality, generic skills and overall satisfaction for Science and Environmental Studies areas, the guide’s ratings place ECU in the top five nationally.

All Biology, Chemistry and Environmental Science courses offered are regularly reviewed by Course Consultative

Committees (consisting of industry and government representatives) who provide valuable feedback on our approaches and content. This means that all degrees are tailored to the needs of the discipline, our students, and potential employers.

StAte-of-the-Art fACILItIeS

Our science students and researchers have access to the latest facilities and equipment in the University’s state-of-the-art, award winning, purpose-built $28 million

Science and Health Building. This environmentally-friendly building includes a range of features to reduce energy consumption by maximising the use of rainwater, solar energy and natural light. The principles of sustainability are also reflected in its design.

My course allows me to do things most people only dream of.

The Biological Science course at ECU has given me a good understanding of the fundamental concepts of biology and how they connect with and help me critically analyse the results from advanced research.

Fieldwork is an important part of my course. I’ve helped with reptile surveys and research projects all over the state. These opportunities took me to stunning areas of WA, including the Kimberley and allowed me to get up close and personal with elusive species of native fauna that most people don’t even know exist.

Start your career journey with an ECU Business degree and you’ll graduate with the right balance of theoretical knowledge and practical skills that employers are looking for.

With an ECU Business degree, you have the freedom to experience a variety of subject areas, ranging from traditional disciplines, such as Accounting, Economics and Management, through to more contemporary disciplines, such as Management of Information Technology (MIT), International Business, and

Human Resource Management.

eCu grADuAte WINS 2010 WeSterN AuStrALIA buSINeSS ICoN CompetItIoN

The Western Australia (WA) Business Icon competition is an annual event, inviting young people to compete in a range of activities over a 10-day period, and mixes the best elements of competitive TV shows such as The Apprentice.

Ben Smith, 2009 ECU Sport Management graduate and 2010 winner of the WA Business Icon competition said, “I could put all the skills I had attained at ECU right into play. Taking the cake from 600 other applicants reinforces why ECU is such a great place to study.”

This is the second consecutive year a Faculty of Business and

Law student has won the award.

StuDeNtS Work WIth reAL CompANIeS

The Business i Lab initiative is an innovative collaboration between the City of Wanneroo and ECU. It provides an opportunity for

Business students to utilise the employability skills developed in their ECU Business Edge units in real-life scenarios, working with local companies facing everyday business issues.

Students work with local Wanneroo businesses on a series of projects, such as creating marketing plans, business plans and financial plans, to help them generate long-term solutions and achieve success.

teN SkILLS, four uNItS, oNe progrAm

� eCu buSINeSS eDge

Think again. Business is different at ECU. ECU believes in the importance of developing your employability skills to better prepare you for your future career in the workplace. In 2007,

ECU was the first university to launch Business Edge; a program of four units that are core to the Bachelor of Business degree.

So what are employability skills? They are a list of skills, behaviours and attributes commonly referred to as key, core or generic skills. They are considered essential if you want to be ‘job-ready’ when you finish your degree. While fostering skills, attributes and knowledge to better prepare students for the workplace is not a new concept, it is now recognised in both education and industry as being a pivotal element of

Business education.

ECU wants you to have a competitive edge in the job market when you graduate, so regular reviews of the Business

Edge program are made to keep it up to date and relevant.

With changing global and national business environments, a contemporary framework has been developed to reflect evolving industry requirements. The inclusion of self-awareness, an important aspect of emotional intelligence, supports industry’s call for graduates to actively reflect on their strengths, weaknesses and personal practices. The international concern for our environment dictates nurturing responsibility and sustainability in Business graduates, as well as critical thinking, which has long been considered the skill that differentiates graduates from other employees.

ECU Business Edge employability skills include:

„ „

„ „

„ „

„ „

„ „

„ „

„ „

„ „

„ „

„ „

Working effectively with others

Communicating effectively

Self-awareness

Thinking critically

Analysing data and using technology

Problem-solving

Developing initiative and enterprise

Self-management

Social responsibility and accountability

Developing professionalism

ECU Business Edge is taught in specially designed classrooms with enhanced technology to allow you to work with others on real-world problems. Teaching is student-centred so there are plenty of role-plays, scenarios, interactive multi-media and activities where you develop your employability skills by ‘doing’

– the best and most enjoyable way to learn. You also get the opportunity to undertake practical work integrated learning with local businesses to really extend your skills and abilities.

Out of all the universities in Australia, ECU was my first choice.

I was attracted to Perth’s relaxed lifestyle and ECU offered the right combination of flexible class times and academic support, as well as access to the latest technology. Being able to log onto ECU ’s wireless network means I am able to access library books and resources while enjoying the outdoors.

ECU offers students a complete package ranging from free classes that teach you how to reference correctly, to free services that help you apply for your dream job.

Marketing professionals are employed by organisations to develop and manage marketing and communication strategies, with advertising and public relations the cornerstone of business communications. These elements are strategically integrated into this cross-discipline course combining managerial with creative skills.

It includes elements of production, marketing, public relations, visual arts, communications research and interactive multi-media to develop and showcase the strengths of individual students.

Public Relations develops communication in a variety of contexts, researches the effectiveness of communication and plans the strategy behind communication campaigns.

Graduates of this course will have the ability to critically analyse, evaluate and compile new communication strategies; to function as skilled communicators; and to establish and manage media relations industries.

Provides a high-quality and broad-based coverage of multi-disciplinary engineering. In the modern engineering environment, large-scale engineering projects are increasingly likely to be of a highly multi-disciplinary nature, requiring engineers from diverse backgrounds to be able to work effectively as a team to deliver the outcomes. In such environments, a broader understanding of engineering, beyond one specific area of specialisation, is highly desirable and advantageous.

Developing such breadth in four-year engineering courses is a challenge as it compromises the level of specialist knowledge that is also required from a graduate engineer.

LAW & JuStICe

ECU’s Law and Justice courses will open career doors to and beyond the courtroom, and equip you with a practical legal education to pursue social justice and make a difference in this world.

Students have the opportunity to specialise across an extensive range of contemporary issues such as Family Law, Mediation,

Youth Awareness, the Psychology of Criminal Behaviour, offender management, and effective Forensic Investigation.

eCu StuDeNtS heLp purSue SoCIAL JuStICe

WIth the CrImINAL JuStICe reVIeW proJeCt

Criminology, Law and Forensic Investigation students work with ECU academics and criminal barristers on the

Criminal Justice Review project to develop skills in case file management, investigative techniques and research.

The project is committed to exonerating innocent persons who have been wrongly convicted.

The Joondalup Community Legal Centre (JCLC) is a joint initiative of ECU and the Northern Suburbs Community

Legal Centre (Inc).

The JCLC office is located at ECU’s Joondalup campus and aims to:

„ „

„ „ facilitate access to legal assistance for communities in the northern suburbs provide an opportunity for ECU Law students to gain experience and practical skills in the legal field and reach out to local communities

JCLC provides legal information and advice for the community in the areas of family and criminal law, domestic violence, tenancy, elder abuse and some areas of civil law.

eCu LAW StuDeNtS get hANDS-oN experIeNCe

IN moot Court

In 2010, a team of ECU Law students participated in the annual Malcolm McCusker Criminal Law Moot at the WA Police

Academy moot court.

The competition is an internal law moot (a simulated court proceeding) run by the Law Student Body and the North Law

Society, and judged by Academic Competitions Coordinator and

ECU lecturer, Mr Michael Crowley.

The 2010 moot involved the review of a trial judge’s directions to the jury. Competing teams made submissions both for and against the judge’s directions, providing ECU Law students with a great opportunity to cultivate their skills.

AND orDer AND CSI?

If you have ever imagined yourself in a scene from Silent

Witness, Law and Order or CSI and in pursuit of justice, consider a career in solving crimes. ECU’s Bachelor of Forensic

Investigation differs from other forensic courses by combining applied science with relevant Law and Justice units. Graduates will be able to collect, analyse and interpret forensic data and present that evidence in court.

eCu LAW AND JuStICe CourSeS CoNNeCt theorY

AND prACtICe

ECU Law and Justice students are given a broad range of opportunities to gain practical experience by working with trained professionals and engaging with the community.

Students participate in client interviewing, competitions, moots, legal research and writing clinics. Law students add an important practical component to their studies by assisting with real-life case studies under the supervision of legal practitioners at the on-campus Northern Suburbs Community Legal Centre.

I am completely satisfied that I have chosen the best university possible to complete my studies.

I chose ECU because of the significance of the lady behind the name (Edith Cowan). I have grown up with a sense of social justice and have always had strong female role models in my family. ECU Business and

Law lecturers have a passion for law and justice that exceeds their role as lecturers. Their commitment to involve students in their work is impressive and gives students an opportunity to gain practical insight into their particular field of study. I find the library and IT resources at ECU to be exceptional. Research seems so in depth due to the great expanse of information available via the online databases.

NurSINg

ECU boasts the largest undergraduate Nursing program in Western Australia, and is recognised as the premium provider of Nursing education. Students have access to state-of-the-art facilities including simulation suites and demonstration wards that promote ‘scenario-based’ learning, ensuring graduates are job ready. What’s more, selected students have the opportunity to participate in

Nursing partnership programs, allowing them to undertake their clinical placements with one health service throughout the program.

NurSINg StuDeNt‘S prACtICAL pLACemeNt IN eASt AfrICA

As part of her ‘practical placement’, a unit within the ECU

Bachelor of Science (Nursing) Degree, undergraduate student Charlotte Keneston spent two weeks visiting and treating hospital and community health centre patients in Tanzania, East Africa. Charlotte developed a new appreciation for Australian healthcare after witnessing the adverse conditions in which Tanzanian nursing staff work, including no running water and no electricity in many parts of the hospital. Not only did the unit allow Charlotte to travel and experience a different healthcare system first-hand, it also offered her the chance to put the theory she had learned in her course into practice, performing observational work and offering advice and help to patients.

She commenced an 18-month graduate program at

Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital in 2011.

WorLD-CLASS fACILItIeS

The School of Nursing, Midwifery and Postgraduate Medicine is located in the purpose-built Health and Wellness Building at

Joondalup campus. The Health and Wellness building incorporates the ECU Health simulation centre and demonstration wards which provide a safe and authentic environment for clinical skills development to increase the competence and confidence of students and healthcare professionals.

Demonstration wards comprising 52 beds are designed to meet

Australian healthcare standards. The facilities at the Health and

Wellness building give students the opportunity for experiential hands-on practice to learn and master nursing, midwifery and paramedical skills in a variety of simulated healthcare settings.

The nursing facilities on our ECU South West (Bunbury)

Campus are the most sophisticated in regional Western

Australia. They include a nursing demonstration ward and a high dependency ward. The technology used in Bunbury is the same as in Perth, so all ECU nursing students receive access to the same supportive environment.

Prepares students to be registered with the Nurses and

Provides a broad knowledge and skills base that will enable the graduate to act independently as well as interdependently within the healthcare context. The graduate will practice as a registered nurse who has professional competence and who is responsible, accountable, empathetic and willing to participate in professional activities. The course comprises five broad streams of study: Nursing Issues, Nursing Practice,

Nursing Science / Health Science, Nursing Studies and

Nursing Theory.

My ECU Nursing degree helped me help people in need.

My aunt died in a hospital in the Philippines due to a lack of proper care, so I wanted a degree that could help make a difference in the world. With ECU’s overseas partnership I got the chance to work in rural parts of

Laos. We had very basic equipment, if any to work with, and our patients needed so much more than we could provide. However, practicing nursing in another country was an experience I will treasure for years.

The study of Psychology, Social Science and Social Work is based around developing a clear understanding of human behaviour. The study of Speech Pathology encompasses the diagnosis and treatment of children and adults with communication and swallowing disorders. At ECU, we have a passion for finding better ways to educate and train students in the academic disciplines and professions of Psychology, Social

Science, Social Work, and Speech Pathology. ECU is the largest provider of Psychology, Social Science, and Community Studies courses in Western Australia (WA) and is also one of only two universities in WA to teach Speech Pathology.

If you are interested in how people think, feel and behave, study

Psychology at ECU. This fascinating area of study provides students with knowledge of how humans think, function and behave in a multitude of settings, and the various factors that can impact on normal function. As a Psychologist, you can play an important role in ensuring the wellbeing of individuals, families and organisations.

ECU’s Social Science and Social Work courses have a focus on professional practice that include non-traditional and emerging study areas such as social justice, human rights, crime and inclusion. Social Science and Social Work graduates will be able to provide much needed support to the community, based on the practical skills they acquire during the course.

Speech Pathology students at ECU gain the practical skills to help adults and children with communication, voice, and swallowing impairments. As a Speech Pathology student at ECU, you have access to a state-of-the-art laboratory with the latest audiology equipment and acoustic analysis software.

CLoSe LINkS WIth INDuStrY

ECU has close links with the profession of Psychology and the professions of Welfare and Community Work. Our approach to teaching, as well as our course content, is guided by industry, the Australian Psychological Accreditation Council, the

Australian Institute of Welfare and Community Workers Inc., and the Australian Association of Social Workers.

I graduated with a variety of experiences and a competitive advantage.

The School of Psychology lecturers are very easy to approach and knowledgeable in a wide range of disciplines. The fact they are all passionate about different fields of psychology helps you to identify areas that you could pursue. Studying externally was fantastic as it gave me the flexibility and freedom to manage my own study, travel overseas and also maintain my job working in a psychology practice. As a result, I graduated with a variety of experiences and a competitive advantage.

This is a progressive course dedicated to producing future teachers ready to enter the Primary education profession.

The course includes the opportunity to complete a fast tracked final year and achieve eligibility for employment in schools from term four of that year. A key feature of this course is the range and number of professional practice experiences offered to teaching students which ensure they can make the essential connection between theory and practice, while building both professional and generic employability skills in real teaching environments.

Partnerships between ECU and over 500 schools allow for teaching students to gain experience in diverse settings, including public, private, city or remote schools, working with children from differing economic, social, ethnic and educational circumstances.

Of particular importance within the course is an emphasis on the use of Information Technology in learning and teaching.

As well as gaining the professional knowledge needed to successfully incorporate IT into learning programs, teaching students develop their own IT skills, ensuring graduates are professionally prepared for teaching.

Likewise opportunities exist in the fourth year of the course for teaching students to focus on a specialised curriculum area.

Units are available in the degree enabling students to complete accreditation requirements to teach in Catholic schools.

Successful completion of the course presents graduates with the opportunity to take up employment as outstanding teachers equipped with the knowledge, skills and experience to make a difference to the lives of young people and take on a classroom of their own.

Start your career journey with an ECU Urban and Regional

Planning Degree and you’ll be able to help create communities that people will love to live in.

Ever looked at a street, a community business district or the layout of a shopping complex and thought it could have been planned better? Then consider an ECU Planning Degree.

Planners forecast the future residential, commercial and recreational needs of communities, and develop policies and plans for the best use of land and resources to create sustainable living environments.

With ECU Urban and Regional Planning courses, the road is open to a wide range of career choices within government and private industry.

Your future‘S IN gooD hANDS WIth A pIA

ACCreDIteD Degree

ECU’s Bachelor of Planning degree is accredited by the

Planning Institute of Australia (PIA), meaning ECU Planning students acquire the right skills and knowledge, through a balance of theory and practice, to be job-ready when they graduate.

StuDeNtS LINk ACADemIA WIth the reAL WorLD

Field trips and live projects are key elements of student learning and assessment, to ensure you have the necessary real-world experience to complement your studies. In 2010 students visited the Midland redevelopment authority area to observe how land is being developed into a healthy lifestyle city, where urban structure is balanced with natural landscape, and cycling, transit and walking are promoted as the dominant transport forms.

heLpINg to CreAte A SuStAINAbLe future

In cities like Perth, we can no longer assume that the water resources we currently have will be the same in future years.

Suburbs will need to be designed around the availability of water, and transport systems developed to reduce our reliance on energy intensive transportation.

The City of Wanneroo, in partnership with property developer,

Cedar Woods, has constructed their EcoVision Demonstration

Home project. This project offers the community practical and innovative ideas to help reduce the cost of living, and minimise our impact on the environment.

ECU’s Centre for Planning has been involved in the project since its inception and ECU’s Faculty of Business and Law is a proud supporter of the City of Wanneroo and a Gold Sponsor of the

EcoVision project.

eCu pLANNINg LeCturer heLpS StuDeNtS obtAIN

Work pLACemeNtS

Through senior lecturer Dr Edward Andre’s support and industry links, ECU Graduate Diploma of Planning student, Matt Robinson and Bachelor of Planning student, Daniel Bouwer, have been fortunate in gaining workplace experience to complement their studies.

Matt has recently completed work experience over the summer holidays with the City of Wanneroo and Daniel will complete a four-week placement with the WA Young Planners in the East

Pilbara region during the 2011 semester break.

The WA Young Planners work placement is a new initiative designed to interest young planners in working in regional areas.

Dr Andre said, “It’s important to encourage our students to assist with creating socially cohesive, liveable and sustainable communities. It helps them take theory out of the classroom and apply it in the real-world. It also provides an opportunity to explore the different aspects of the planning industry and identify their area of interest.”

Thanks to opportunities ECU has provided, I now have an interesting and fulfilling job in a field I’m passionate about.

Throughout high school I was interested in geography but I was unsure how I could apply these skills in the workplace. I attended an ECU information evening and this helped me to decide on studying Planning at ECU.

The aspect I enjoy most about ECU’s Planning degree is the wide range of subjects available including ecology, business studies, geography and community work. In my second year of uni I received a scholarship which secured me a 12-week paid work experience at the City of Joondalup. At the conclusion of my scholarship I was offered a permanent position. The ability to combine what I have learnt at university with real-life experience has helped me to understand how it all comes together.

WeSterN AuStrALIAN ACADemY of performINg ArtS

The Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) at Edith Cowan University is a world renowned performing arts training institution.

WAAPA is recognised nationally and internationally for the quality of its graduates. It provides the most comprehensive range of performing arts training in Australia – both on stage and behind the scenes.

Entry into each course is competitive, and prospective students undertake an audition and/or an interview as part of the application process.

ShoWCASINg Your tALeNt

Each year students, staff and critically acclaimed guest artists collaborate to present over 300 performances across a range of concerts, plays, dance, music theatre, opera and film. Many of these take place in WAAPA’s own performance venues at ECU’s

Mount Lawley Campus. Exciting community partnerships also enable WAAPA to perform in a diverse range of spaces in the

Perth metropolitan area and beyond.

StAr grADuAteS

WAAPA graduates excel in their chosen professions. Arts management, production and design graduates hold positions across a breadth of performing arts companies, festivals, venues, film, television, major events, arts organisations and teaching institutions around the globe.

Dancers, singers and actors have established flourishing careers on stage, film and television. Musicians perform regularly and record often.

Many graduates are highly celebrated (think Hugh Jackman, Tim

Minchin, Rachel Durkin, Dustin Clare, and Meow Meow). Many may not be as well known, but they nevertheless are leading lives of artistic passion and great commitment.

ACtINg

Studying acting at WAAPA is an inspiring and all-consuming experience. The Acting course provides graduates with the skills and experience required to engage in professional theatre practice and contemporary screen work. The Acting program trains students as a theatre ensemble. The ensemble develops performance skills in acting, voice and movement by exploring a wide range of works and performance styles, as well as through improvisation and devising original works.

While theatre is the core focus of the course, students are also trained in acting for television, film and radio. Working with guest artists and leading industry practitioners facilitates the transition from student to professional life. Full-scale acting productions provide the opportunity for students to collaborate with their WAAPA peers from other disciplines, such as

Production and Design and subsequently learn more about the complete theatrical production process.

INterVIeWS, AuDItIoNS AND foLIoS

All of WAAPA’s courses require applicants to complete an interview and/or audition, or submit a folio of work, as part of the selection process.

Graduates of the classical music program can be found in major opera houses, symphony orchestras, and in educational institutions the world over.

Classical performance students follow one of three streams: vocal studies, instrumental studies or keyboard studies.

In addition to a core academic program, all students receive individual lessons and specialist performance classes and participate in a large range of ensembles, which may include chamber music groups, the symphony orchestra, fully staged operas and cutting edge new music.

Each stream has its own discrete specialist classes, for example, vocal students study acting, languages and movement skills.

Instrumentalists study chamber music, early and contemporary performance practices and pianists study in solo repertoire, accompaniment and vocal coaching.

grADuAte CertIfICAteS

A Graduate Certificate is a great way to diversify your current skills and knowledge with courses of only three or four units. Enhance your employability, develop a specialisation, move in a creative direction or simply formalise your existing skills and knowledge. The best part is that they can be completed in as little as six months full-time study.

There are two kinds of Graduate Certificates. The first type can enhance your current knowledge (like the Graduate

Certificate in Early Childhood Studies for currently qualified Teachers) and the second can diversify your knowledge (like the Graduate Certificate in Environmental

Management). Graduate certificates range from Business,

Justice, Science, Health, Education, Indigenous Services

Management to Photography, Writing, Children’s

Literature or Aviation Medicine to name a few!

poStgrADuAte DegreeS

People undertake postgraduate study for a wide range of reasons. Generally, their reasons can be attributed to the following criteria:

„ „

„ „

„ „

„ „

Development and extension of knowledge and skills derived from previous study or vocational experience

Career progression (differentiate yourself from others, gaining a competitive advantage, increased earning potential, professional recognition)

Change in career

Desire to enter academia

All ECU postgraduate degrees are recognised nationally and internationally. Rigorous accreditation procedures used by the University, and in consultation with professional and vocational groups, ensures that there is appropriate professional recognition of all courses.

Programs include; Graduate Certificate, Graduate

Diploma, Master by Coursework, Professional Doctorate,

Master by Research and Doctor of Philosophy.

hoNourS

If you are passionate about a particular subject, an

Honours course will enable you to explore this area in greater depth. You will be actively contributing to the global body of knowledge in that field.

An Honours course is a fourth year of study at undergraduate level, which includes some coursework units and a research thesis or project.

In certain four-year degrees such as Engineering, dependent on the student’s total weighted course average and the final year project mark, students may be automatically awarded an Honours degree.

An ECU Honours course may enhance your employment opportunities. Honours graduates are highly valued by prospective employers for their excellent writing, research and communication skills allowing them to put their mark on complex projects.

Entrance to the Honours course is normally through invitation by the School to students with a course average of 70% or higher. Students who have a course average close to 70% and who have demonstrated an aptitude for research and independent study may apply to be considered for Honours. External prospective students are also welcome to apply. To discuss possible topics, available projects and potential supervisors, talk to the Honours Coordinators of the discipline you are interested in.
