ECU hosted Year 10 students from Girrawheen Senior High School, Carnarvon Senior High School, Kearnan Catholic College and Harvey Senior High School last week as part of the Explore ECU program.
Explore ECU invites WA school students from years 10 to 12 to visit the University, where they are given the opportunity to learn about a range of studies options available, and get an insight into university life.
Schools attended a number of seminars, including Pick the Criminal with the Faculty of Business and Law and interactive nursing presentations lead by the School of Computing, Health and Science.
A presentation led by student recruitment also gave students the chance to learn about the different pathways to entry, admission procedures, and courses unique to ECU.
Visiting students were given an interactive tour of the campus and student village, with students from Harvey Senior High School also given the opportunity to see ECU’s WAAPA facilities at the Mount Lawley Campus.
Kearnan Catholic College student, Bryan Adams, thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
"It was great to learn about the variety of courses available at ECU and the range of different pathways to study.
“I really enjoyed the visit, and the experience gave me a valuable insight into university life."
