Study Tours

Edith Cowan College (ECC) has extensive experience in designing and organising tours. ECC Study Tours combine English language tuition with cultural and leisure activities in Western Australia. The English programs are delivered by fully qualified teachers and students will develop communicative and academic skills in a way that is interactive and builds confidence.

English Language Tuition

For tours of 10 weeks or more, study tour students may join Academic English classes with other international students. However, classes are in 10 week blocks and to ensure academic rigour, students are unable to join or finish at any time except for the start and end date of that class.

Academic English start dates and study breaks:

For tours less than 10 weeks, closed classes is the only option. Students’ have their own fully qualified teacher but will not mix with other classes or students. For this to be cost effective, a minimum of 15 students is recommended. The English tuition component can be delivered in full-day or part-day modules, or a mixture of both. Classes can commence at any time except during ECC study breaks.

Please note that these courses are not available to student visa holders as their principal course.


Students can stay with an Australian host family (Homestay) giving them a unique cultural experience whilst enhancing their everyday English communication skills. Study Tours uses the quality services of the Australian Homestay Network (AHN).

Activities can be organised after class or on the weekend. For study tours, English classes can be mixed with educational or leisure activities both during the week and on the weekend.
