Important things you should know if you're thinking of studying here.
"The lecturers at ECU are lifelong professionals who have extensive experience in the subjects they are teaching"
I had heard about ECU's great reputation for offering industry recognised courses and job-ready graduates, and this was a key factor in my decision to undertake study here.
During my study I've found that the lecturers at ECU are lifelong professionals who have extensive experience in the subjects they are teaching, rather than just an academic background. This makes the lectures very interesting, as we get to learn about real world issues and solutions.
The facilities at ECU are very impressive. They have the latest high-end technology, and all of it is accessible to students, which prepares you for the real world. There also are many opportunities for developing important contacts within the industry. I got the opportunity to represent the university at two major industry conferences. This allowed me to develop critical networks in Federal and State law enforcement, as well as private industry.
"During my prac placements I made some great working relationships"
Teaching was something I always wanted to do. I had already studied my undergrad degree at ECU so I jumped at the opportunity to further my career with a postgrad degree.
The lecturers at ECU have been extremely helpful, even after completing all units they still remain in contact and give sound advice when applying for jobs.
The facilities are great, with comfortable study nooks, which contributes to making your time at university enjoyable.
I did a 4-week placement at Greenwood College and a 7-week placement at St Hilda’s Anglican School. It was great to work with two different schools, and to learn how to apply general teaching materials in different ways has been useful.
During my prac placements I made some great working relationships that will assist me with job opportunities in the future. Without this practicum experience, I would not have the understanding I have today to go forward with confidence in my teaching career.
