Accelerated Online Study at ECU

Edith Cowan University (ECU) offers an online study format that is accelerated. Instead of the traditional two-semesters-a-year format, ECU features six 8-week study periods annually.

This accelerated approach allows students, including part-timers, to fast-track their degree by studying throughout the year, including in the summer months.

Part-time online students take one subject per study period. This corresponds to six subjects annually, rather than the normal four if they attended campus part-time. It ensures a manageable workload but also faster, more consistent progress toward a degree.
