  • "My ECU degree gave me the flexibility to gain a wide range of skills that enable success in the world of business"
    Kohen Grogan
    Kohen GroganECU Communication graduate & Founder, Yappy Group

    The reason I chose a Bachelor of Communication at ECU was because I didn't really know what I wanted to do. There was flexibility within the course – instead of forcing me to specialise straight away, I had the chance to try a range of disciplines and then pick the areas I was most interested in.

    I even did some acting units from WAAPA. Being able to communicate effectively and speak in public is such an important skill to learn.

  • "I’ve always had an interest in marketing, advertising and PR"
    Pia Campbell
    Pia CampbellMarketing, Advertising and PR graduate

    Marketing, Advertising and PR work hand-in-hand in the real world, so it made sense to unite them at uni too. The combined degree at ECU allowed me to study all three. We experienced the end-to-end process from PR consultant, to journalist, to publishing in classes that mirrored the real world. One of my units was held in an awesome computer lab where we were plugged in to live blogs and industry news – this was a great way to learn how to write a timely and successful press release.

  • "As a person with two disabilities, there are many challenges to be faced in tertiary education"
    Vanessa Vlajkovic
    Vanessa VlajkovicMedia and Communication student

    I have always loved reading and writing and I have a natural curiosity about the world around me, so journalism seemed like the ideal choice of major for me.

    ECU has excellent facilities and the staff are very accommodating.

    Being deafblind means I've had to advocate a lot for myself at uni, this has lead to a great improvement in my advocacy skills and my confidence, especially when communicating what I need and what works for me.
