"Planning at ECU prepares you for the real challenges of the profession."

"After viewing the Planning courses offered at the other universities in WA, I found that the course at ECU provided a more tailored approach to the field, allowing you to choose the areas of planning that specifically interest you.

The skills I am attaining through my studies are preparing me for the real challenges I will face in the workforce. Not just planning challenges, but a wider range business and organisational issues. I like the fact that I could take these skills and apply them to a wide range of careers.

Overall, studying at ECU is a very positive experience. The lecturers are always available to answer your questions and assist you in any way they can."
