"ECU allowed me to tailor my qualification making me competitive in the workforce."
"ECU recognised my undergraduate qualification in Health Sciences and allowed me to undertake my post graduate studies in planning. This allowed me to tailor my qualification to my interests and goals, making me more
specialized and competitive in the workforce.
I was interested in many of the units that ECU had to offer post graduate students. I particularly liked that the core principles from my undergraduate studies were incorporated in the postgraduate units at ECU. These were included in the content of; Strategic Urban and Regional Planning; Principles of Urban Design; and Foundations of Planning.
I gained a broad understanding of the strategic issues currently affecting Perth. Having lecturers with years of experience and guest speakers from different facets of the planning industry allowed me to gain a solid understanding of planning in Perth and in a broader context.
My biggest achievements were finishing my postgraduate degree and securing employment in the planning field which both required a lot of hard work and dedication.
