Your teacher/trainer can provide you with academic support, as they specialise within specific study areas. If you are still concerned we suggested you speak to your coordinator by arranging an appointment at reception.
2Stay is ECA’s preferred accommodation provider. Our students can gain direct support from the 2Stay office at our campus. 2Stay is the best option for student accommodation. They offer quality accommodation solutions for international students, housing them in modern, comfortable and secure places, ensuring that they not only have a great place to live but also a welcoming atmosphere to promote a positive and enriching experience.

We provide a variety of Homestay family types which include retired couples, single professional people, and families with children or families with teenagers.
This gives you a great opportunity to learn first-hand about the Australian way of life and to establish new friendships. Homestay generally provides a single furnished room, two meals per day (breakfast and dinner) during weekdays and three meals a day on the weekends.

If you are finding yourself feeling overwhelmed by your study or living in a new country, you are welcome to make an appointment with our professional counselling team. They will ensure that any concerns you have are addressed in the appropriate manner.
Should your attendance or course progress become concerning, you may require some counselling to get you back on track. Please ask reception to arrange an appointment if you receive a warning letter regarding these matters.
As part of our Professional Year Program and SMIPA courses students are required to participate within an internship. Our team will help you achieve this part of your course. See reception to make an appointment as soon as your course commences to maximise your chances of gaining the right internship for you.
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)
You may be eligible to gain RPL for previous studies at another college or university. If the competency/module/unit you have completed is exactly the same as the unit to be completed with ECA you may be eligible for credit.
If the unit of study is similar but not exactly the same you may wish to apply for RPL, please ask your trainer or reception for an RPL application form.
Students applying from overseas can ask for RPL for qualifications or experience they may believe they have. Students can gain RPL prior to enrolment. If this occurs the length of the student visa will be adjusted prior to embarkation and DIAC informed.
Students can gain RPL after commencing the qualification in Australia. DIAC will be informed and the student visa timeframe will be adjusted. At all times students need to comply with the 80% attendance rule and attend 20 hours face-to-face per week.
Students cannot apply for RPL or RCC at the end of their course.
Applications for RPL and RCC attract a review cost of $25.00 per unit.
Student support services
Our reception team can arrange most support services that you may require and if they can’t they will be able to direct you to the relevant department. They are helpful and friendly and look forward to discussing your needs as you complete your studies.
