Edith Cowan University is working towards growth and community interaction in 2018. 

According to ECU South West Dean Lyn Farrell, the campus has planned to increase enrolment in its arts, engineering, and business courses. 

The campus will also begin its new health courses consisting of nutrition, occupational safety and health, health promotion and addiction studies. 

This year, the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts will launch its Diploma of Acting course. 

Course coordinator Trudy Dunn hoped the course would draw those interested to the campus.

Looking back on 2017, Ms Farrell said its nursing and social work courses held steady enrolments. 

Meanwhile, enrolments in its education courses increased.
