    ECU postgraduate Business graduate

    I never imagined that an MBA could give you so much more than knowledge

    During my studies I was taught leadership skills and have managed human resources, financial resources, and physical assets. I learnt the skills and knowledge to deliver services that align to the business objectives in a range of business areas.

    ECU Bachelor of Laws student

    My undergraduate journey at ECU has been amazing

    Returning to studies mid-life, I have embarked on an academic journey by undertaking the Bachelor of Laws undergraduate course.

    The flexibility, convenience and support offered by ECU were pivotal in my decision to take up this challenge. The lecturers and staff are extremely supportive, encouraging and approachable, and always provide the help I need. I have found the culture at ECU very empowering.

    As the recipient of the Cullen McLeod Prize in Contract Law II in 2018, I now have the chance to complete an internship at a law firm. This is a great opportunity to apply the theory I've learnt to real world practice.

  • Maharshi Maharjan

    Maharshi Maharjan

    ECU Master of Project Management graduate

    I chose ECU because I liked the units offered and the structure of the course, and the location was amazing, especially coming from a landlocked country!

    Adapting to the learning and teaching systems of a different country was a challenge, but the lecturers, tutors and many academic support networks were extremely helpful and assisted me in achieving academic success.

    Coping with living in a new environment and having to work under stress were big challenges at the start of my degree, but dealing with this pressure is now my greatest strength.
