Student stories

  • Dorian Salzmann

    Dorian Salzmann

    Bachelor of Aviation student

    "Everyone works together for a common learning goal"

    The Bachelor of Aviation course is the only one of its kind offered in Western Australia. The facilities at ECU are amazing, the way that everyone works together for a common learning goal is very apparent. Many people notice this if they have studied at different universities.

    A work placement with Virgin Australia Regional Airlines gave me an insight into their operations department, an amazing experience to see how they handled problems. There are so many people working behind the scenes that you don’t normally consider when a passenger boards a flight.

    As a mature age student, I took the University Preparation Course. I feel my UniPrep lecturers and tutors were very good at setting a positive university framework from early on in the program.

    I love being a university student, these memories I will treasure for the rest of my life! I feel so excited about what the future will hold.

    Sally Strang

    ECU Early Childhood Education student

    "ECU's School of Education has friendly and knowledgeable lecturers with industry experience"

    I have always been passionate about teaching but never considered studying at university as my family still needed me at home. I had already heard that ECU was an excellent university for Education courses, but seeing ECU students on practicum placement at my children’s school and the fact that my children are now old enough to walk to and from school is what influenced me to pursue full time study.

    ECU’s School of Education has friendly and knowledgeable lecturers with industry experience which really adds credibility to the content I am being taught. I am learning so much about how to be a good educator while establishing strong professional relationships with lecturers and tutors.

    I am loving the campus experience and making a lot of new friends, and I am really grateful for the annual practicum placement opportunities that ECU offers. It gives me an accurate look into a classroom through the educator’s eyes. I can’t wait to begin my career in teaching.

    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.
