    Youth Work graduate

    "ECU has helped me realise the type of youth worker I want to be"

    My study experience at ECU has been really enjoyable. The lecturers are extremely helpful, providing me with career advice as well as support within the course.

    So far, I've undertaken three work placements, and all have been valuable. Not only have they helped me put theory into practice, they’ve also helped me realise the type of youth worker I want to be.

    "I have found ECU's industry partnerships really valuable"

    I was looking to study Civil Engineering and, after touring the state-of-the-art engineering facilities at ECU, my choice of university became really easy.

    I am the ECU Campus Representative for Engineers Australia and a General Committee Member of the Institute of Engineering and Technology WA Young Professionals that offers a number of networking opportunities.

    ECU Engineering also has a strong community feel and there are always opportunities to get involved, including engineering clubs, international study tours, volunteer roles, research and local projects and campus activities. These help you gain lifelong skills.

    Biomedical Science student

    "I feel safe and a sense of belonging when I am at ECU"

    I chose ECU for biomedical science because it has a flexible course structure. In my three years of studies, I was allowed to take units that interest me as electives, while also completing compulsory (core) units. It enhanced my whole study experience.

    The atmosphere at ECU is inclusive and has a community feeling to it. I feel safe and a sense of belonging when I am at ECU. Lecturers are very engaging and approachable which helped me keep track on my studies. They are knowledgeable and passionate about the things they do.

    If you are an international student who is new to ECU, get yourself involved as much as you can in whatever interests you. Help is always available and there are people ready to advocate for you if you need them. Join a club or a University activity, volunteer your time and put yourself out there!
