“I was very impressed with the quality and quantity of the research performed at ECU and the facilities and equipment are fantastic.”

“A PhD in Sport and Exercise Science is not available in my home country of Chile so I needed to look elsewhere. I choose ECU mainly because my supervisor, Professor Ken Nosaka, is very well known in the area of sport sciences. I was very impressed with the quality and quantity of the research performed at ECU and the facilities and equipment are fantastic.

My experience with my supervisor has been just fantastic. Professor Nosaka has been very supportive and helpful in my research journey at ECU. I am glad to have him as my supervisor because he is more than a supervisor; he is more like a mentor and I learn something new every meeting, both as a researcher and as a person.

Probably my greatest challenge at the beginning was the language, especially in scientific writing. I attended writing and other workshops and got help from my supervisor. I’ve since had the opportunity to do oral presentations at three big conferences in Europe and Australia.”
