Student stories

    George Pullar

    WAAPA Acting graduate

    Not only does WAAPA have a great reputation among the industry, but you don't quite realise how great the training is until you are able to apply it in a professional context

    Those three years dedicated to honing my skill set gave me a steady confidence and foundation to build on.

    Doubling up for greater opportunity

    Nursing and Midwifery double degree student Jessica Burgess talks about her ECU experience.

  • Aimee Chappell

    Aimee Chappell

    ECU Design graduate

    I constantly find myself looking at signs and symbols and thinking, oh, this could be designed better

    And thinking, "What if we did this?" I was always a visual artist and I just wanted to figure out a way to get a consistent income working in that field.

    Through the units in my degree, especially the Fremantle-based unit, The Happiness Project, I realised it wasn't just about graphic design. For me, it's about design communication, designing systems and figuring out how to help people – asking why are we doing this? Who does it affect? How is it helpful? Thinking with empathy.

    I'd always wanted to help people, but I never thought as a creative that I would find a way to both earn an income and do that.
