Important things you should know if you're thinking of studying here.
"I have found ECU's industry partnerships really valuable"
I was looking to study Civil Engineering and, after touring the state-of-the-art engineering facilities at ECU, my choice of university became really easy.
I am the ECU Campus Representative for Engineers Australia and a General Committee Member of the Institute of Engineering and Technology WA Young Professionals that offers a number of networking opportunities.
ECU Engineering also has a strong community feel and there are always opportunities to get involved, including engineering clubs, international study tours, volunteer roles, research and local projects and campus activities. These help you gain lifelong skills.
"I did my research beforehand and found Exercise & Sports Science can pave the way for different career paths"
The course has taken my personal training to the next level (evidence-based training). It has also given me the opportunity to work with the West Coast Eagles.
I went to China last year and worked with coaches from China's Olympic team and I will possibly be in Sri Lanka later this year with their athletes and continue to fast track my development as a Sports Scientist.
I did my research beforehand and found Exercise & Sports Science can pave the way for different career paths. Strength & Conditioning, Exercise Physiology and Teaching Physical Education to name a few, but there are so many more.
I chose ECU because of their corporate partnerships with some of our country's biggest sporting organisations, including the West Coast Eagles, WACA, Wildcats, etc.
When asked about Ricky's placement, West Coast Eagles General Manager (Community and Game Development) Richard O'Connell said, "Ricky is actively involved in the running of our Academies, learning from experienced coaches and elite players."
"His enthusiasm is a great reflection of the support Edith Cowan University provide their students. His journey is a great path for others to follow.
"The flexibility, support and friendly vibe at ECU has made for a remarkable experience so far"
ECU was my first choice for studying nursing because of the flexibility the university provides – I wanted to study somewhere that I could also manage my family, work and home commitments.
My experience at ECU so far has been remarkable, the staff always strive to provide the best education and support to students. There is a really friendly vibe among all the students, and the cultural diversity gives you an opportunity to understand people from a wide range of nationalities.
My studies have helped me gain vital skills and knowledge and I look forward to completing my nursing degree and pursue my dream career in clinical research and trials.
