Students from ECU’s one year intensive Graduate Diploma of Broadcasting course are well on the way to the career of their dreams, thanks to the support of Australia’s leading broadcasters.
Seven graduating students from the class of 2016 have secured paid internships with the Seven Network, ABC News 24, Fox Sports News, Radio 6PR and WA Today to help them kick-start their careers.
Seven Network Director of Production Brad Lyons said Seven was very proud to continue the long association with ECU.
“The quality of the graduates has always been outstanding and many of the interns have stayed on and continued working for Seven.
“We love helping to train this talented bunch of West Aussies,” he said.
ECU Graduate Diploma of Broadcasting Course Coordinator Jo McManus said the internships offered students a unique opportunity to kick start their media careers.
“Feedback from the media industry is that we have the best broadcast course in the country, but we couldn’t do it without their on-going support,” she said.
Ms McManus said with a small group of just 20 to 23 students accepted into the course each year, students can benefit from one-on-one teaching from lecturers who are all broadcast professionals.
“Our students learn all aspects of broadcasting, from radio to television and online. Which means upon graduation they have the skills required to get jobs,” she said.
