Welcome to Edith Cowan University
I congratulate you on your decision to enrol at PIBT, which provides university pathways to ECU for both Australian and international students.
Perth is one of the most beautiful and friendly cities in the world. Each year ECU is pleased to include some 5,000 students from almost 90 countries as an important part of our student ranks, which now total about 25,000. We offer a wide range of courses, delivered by first-class teachers, and underpinned by top research.
Much of our academic work is aimed at social and economic relevance to the communities we serve. Importantly, we strive to model our approach to scholarship in our everyday practices. In line with this approach, our sustainable communities policy, which encompasses environmental and social sustainability, has resulted in a reduction in the University’s carbon footprint and our energy and water consumption, and an increase in health and wellness initiatives. We are very pleased that from 1 January 2012, all campuses at ECU will become smoke-free further strengthening our commitment to apply knowledge in a timely way.
I hope you will join us at ECU on a journey from which you will benefit.
Kerry O. Cox
