"I’ve had a number of offers for Criminology positions and I haven’t even graduated."
"I chose Criminology at ECU because of the flexible study options. They made it easy to tailor a course to my needs.
Having the chance to attend a conference at the Australian Institute of Criminology in Canberra has been my greatest opportunity so far. This allowed me to meet and learn from the leading researchers in the field.
The staff make a big difference too. Lecturers go that extra mile. The time and effort they put into every student helps you get the most from your course. Thanks to them I have had a number of great employment opportunities before even completing my course."
