ECU South-West Campus 2020 Open Day

After a year rocked by COVID-19, Edith Cowan University (ECU) has put its South West Open Day firmly back on the academic calendar.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Steve Chapman CBE said he was excited to welcome future university students, their friends and families on to the Bunbury campus.

The open day will be held on Sunday October 18 from 11am to 2pm.

"ECU is committed to supporting all future students in finding the right course for their future, whether they be school leavers or mature age students," he said.

"More than 1,500 students attended ECU's first ever Virtual Open Day in August.

"We are now delighted to welcome future students, their families and our wider community to our on-campus Open Day to find out what it is like to study at Australia's top public university for undergraduate teaching quality."

Some of the new courses on offer at the South West Campus include:

  • Secondary Teaching degree new to SW Campus in Semester 1, 2021
  • New Bachelor of Health Science major: Occupational and Environmental Health and Safety (OEHS) major
  • UniPrep course offered through Summer School so prospective students could get the marks they need to start their degree in Semester 1, 2021

Activities on the day include being able to explore the new high-tech nursing and midwifery simulation and demonstration ward and monitor heart and breath sounds with our life-like manikins.

The University will continue to adhere to the WA Government's COVID-19 guidelines.

Extra precautions will also be in place to ensure the health and safety of all visitors, including physical distancing, encouraging good personal hygiene, hand sanitisation stations and increased cleaning of high-touch point areas.
