"The internship I completed in my final semester has been the perfect stepping stone to advance my career"
I chose to study International Hotel and Resort Management at ECU because I had heard of the practical nature of the course. My lecturers were very experienced in the hospitality and tourism industry and provided real life examples and case studies to link theory with current industry practice.
I was lucky enough to take part in the Borneo study tour, and no words can describe how amazing that experience was. In my final semester at ECU, I was able to secure an internship placement. That experience was great, as it allowed me to put what I had learnt into practice, at the same time as learning plenty of new skills from my supervisors and colleagues. Since graduating, I have been lucky enough to be accepted in to the graduate program at Accor hotels, where I will be relocating to Broome. This is truly my greatest achievement so far, and I am excited for the new challenges ahead of me.
"Perth is one of the most relaxed and beautiful cities I've been so far."
I chose to take up my postgraduate studies at ECU because of its diversified and friendly approach among international students. Being one of the youngest university the world, ECU was recognised as one of the universities that offers quality education.
ECU facilities were top of the line and student friendly providing convenience and accessibility to all students. The campus has a pleasant atmosphere, where students feel relaxed and safe. For the past two semesters I've made friends with students of different nationalities.
Perth is one of the most relaxed and beautiful cities I've been so far. People are so friendly and welcoming. I love exploring Perth's beautiful beaches.
My study tip: Be emotionally and mentally prepared as you'll enter a challenging and life-changing journey. However, don't forget to enjoy and make the most out of your learning journey because with ECU it will be possible.
"ECU has the best engineering laboratory facilities in Western Australia"
I chose ECU for its high-quality teaching standards and world-class laboratory facilities. I was interested in mathematics and physics in high school. However, the main inspiration behind choosing electrical engineering was my passion for renewable energy.
ECU provides a very friendly environment for studies, the classes are smaller which allows lecturers and student to engage in an effective manner. I also joined a couple of academic and social clubs at university and made so many good friends and industry connections.
I took an internship program in my last semester and I’m still working with that company. It is an amazing experience to realise that the concepts and theories which I learn at the university have numerous applications in real life.
The best features of Perth are its weather and very friendly people. I like to hang out with friends and colleagues, do rock climbing, go to the beach and play badminton.
ECU has the best engineering laboratory facilities in Western Australia. I would strongly encourage local and international students to choose ECU and pursue their career in STEM.
