Student stories

  • Aaron Tucker

    Aaron Tucker

    ECU Finance graduate

    "I chose ECU because it offered fully online units with fantastic student support, which was ideal when I was working full time at the start of my degree"

    My entire world view has been expanded by studying at ECU. I had no real idea how complicated Finance was before I started. The further into my studies I have progressed, the more I have leant on things I picked up in the first year introductory classes. The skills I have picked up during my course have always had a compounding effect and I now feel comfortable to market myself to employers.

    The lecturers are deeply knowledgeable and very helpful when you have concerns or questions. I have met many fellow students through my studies that I now call friends.

    I can't recommend ECU highly enough, especially given their flexibility and world class facilities.

    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.

  • Daniella Sicari

    Daniella Sicari

    WAAPA Music - Classical Voice graduate

    "WAAPA taught me all about music and what it takes to be a professional singer"

    My undergraduate course at WAAPA gave me fundamental music skills and knowledge. History lectures and invaluable theory classes set me up to recognise musical context and structural understanding. These three years were the years I fell in love with music. The Graduate Diploma taught me that there were more elements to being a singer than I had ever imagined. This was the year I began to discover what opera and art song really could be. WAAPA helped set me up for my time overseas and prepared me with specific tools for my craft. In particular, role preparation and research, and stage confidence and exploration. It also allowed me to gain efficient learning skills when presented with new music, especially in other languages.
