Studying at WAAPA

WAAPA student facilities and services operate within Edith Cowan University at the Mount Lawley Campus. Successful applicants have full access to client support services including accommodation, welfare, guidance and appeals services of Edith Cowan University.


Orientation is an opportunity for all successful applicants to organise themselves with the workings of WAAPA and meet staff and fellow students. In February, students participate in two weeks of events and student focused workshops organised by academic departments and student services. During this time students must enrol in the appropriate units through the Edith Cowan University admissions system to commence study. Please visit the ECU Orientation web page for more information.
