I have no doubt I came to the right place for my doctoral degree
I chose to do my doctorate here because I found the PhD in Business program at the School of Business and Law to be focused on conducting cutting edge and innovative research in areas that are relevant to the global community. I found my supervisors to be very supportive and dedicated to supervising my research work, they create an enabling learning environment that help me to develop my research skills and competencies.
ECU is a great place to study. It carries this climate of a modern, world-class and ambitious institution. It looks like a place I can achieve my goals and aspirations. I have no doubt I came to the right place.
ECU has a reputation as one of the leading universities worldwide for studying Sports Science.
I was attempting to make my second Olympic team while completing my Masters. The course structure, online access and availability of lecturers helped me to manage everything.
I was interested in a Masters program that would broaden my view on environmental issues
I was excited to find that ECU offered exactly what I was looking for as the units in the Master of Environmental Science program are multidisciplinary, covering areas ranging from science to business.
The work integrated learning also attracted me to this course as it offers a good platform to transition into the working environment and an opportunity to apply the skills that I will have gained. So far, the course has been amazing!
