Student stories

    Jaimee Klaassen

    ECU Speech Pathology student

    I love neurology, psychology and anatomy and Speech Pathology encompasses all of these things

    One of the best things about studying Speech Pathology at ECU is doing prac straight away, even from Semester 1 of first year. I’ve been exposed to what Speech Pathology actually looks like and what the profession entails, beyond being in a clinic, which has confirmed that this is the right career for me.

    Grace Flynn

    ECU Media and Communication graduate

    The level of practical experience I gained from the Journalism major was surprising and valuable.

    The level of independence I was granted as a Journalism student, particularly when undertaking assignments, was really beneficial for developing my communication skills and boosting my overall confidence as a student journalist.

    ECU Mechanical Engineering student
 and Engineering Excellence Scholarship recipient

    When I was awarded an Engineering Excellence Scholarship, it was an offer I couldn't turn down

    ECU was one of the few universities I was considering applying for, and when I was awarded an Engineering Excellence Scholarship, it was an offer I couldn't turn down. I've had access to an abundance of help and support, as well as making friendships with other students and my lecturers.

    First year has given me a broad overview of the engineering field and helped me decide to specialise in mechanical engineering. I've also developed a lot of teamwork skills that I believe will help me in both my studies and just life in general.
