    I just came here to say that Uniprep really set me up for my first semester, and I truly appreciate it. I learnt to write an essay again, use APA7 formatting, and create a semester planner, which is my favorite part. Handy for someone who has been out of school a while (:

    poor treatment of students

    I was initially excited to join ECU. However when I studied as an international student I was very disappointed by the lack of support that I received. My concerns were never addressed when I made them and the staff in student Central were always very quick to disregard me or threaten me when I had any issues and never offered any help. I was just another number to them who was a source of income for the school. I didn’t get good placements for my nursing practicum which left me feeling very unprepared for my career after school. I will never recommend this school to anyone!!

    Excellent support

    I have found ECU Joondalup to be an excellent university. The ambiance is very relaxed, and the lecturers and tutors have all been wonderful in my experience.
    There is excellent student support and lots of workshops to help should you need them.

    Poor International Lecturers in School of Business (accounting)

    Unfortunately as both an ex staff member and student I can say the academics they have appointed within accounting are home grown Ph.D. and limited I.e. No more than 1-3 years real world experience. The Indian (chandra) and srilankankan (kapu arach) English is sub standard and student focus terrible i.e. They will respond instaneously if you cc superior but won’t respond to 2-3 emails on a particular survey.

    The UTEI survey is not taken seriously good survey results are seen as random or low sample, while bad are seemed as valid and reliable.

    I have been at a few other unis in Australia and you wouldn’t have 30 plus students in a tutorial especially when they are well funded I.e. 90% of students are Chinese from Anhui province in China. A large tutorial group in some of the better unis would be 20 and 25 students would be max.

      What you wrote was really helpful. Thank you.
      But were you able to complete your course and to succeed despite having difficulties to understand what your lecturers taught? What about the course itself? Was it well organised and up-to-date? Could you engage with the other students for some group work? By the way, are you an international student? What does the UTEI survey refer to? Besides is there any university you would recommend me for a Bachelor of Commerce (major in accounting)?

      Kind regards,

    I thought I’d start the reviews for ECU. I completed a Bachelor of Education (secondary) degree at ECU a few years ago and am thinking about going back to do a masters course.

    The lecturers and tutors at ECU are very committed to their work and helping students to learn. I can’t imagine you would get the same level of attention at some of Perth’s other universities.

    Joondalup isn’t close to the city but we were never short of things to do in terms of parties, etc.
    I really enjoyed the course overall and definitely recommend ECU.
