Student stories

  • Ciara O'Halloran

    Ciara O'Halloran

    ECU Master of Professional Accounting graduate

    "My studies at ECU opened a range of opportunities, not just limited to becoming an accountant"

    The campus is modern and facilities like the 24-hour study lab make it easier to fit in study. The lecturers knew what they were talking about and tutorial notes were extensive. It is important that you get enough materials to guide you through your self-study and ECU provided that. I met some great people during my time at ECU, and am now the chairperson of the ECU Young Alumni Network, which has provided an invaluable opportunity to build my professional network.

    I always thought I would be an accountant, but upon graduating from the MPA, I was hired as a trainer at a college where I taught Business and Accounting. ECU greatly broadened my skillset, and I felt confident in the knowledge I had to pass on. Although this isn’t the career path I expected to take, I love my current role.

    The ECU facilities and services are more than enough for you to achieve your dreams. The great thing about the lecturers is that they give you the opportunity to explore and discover your interests whilst at the same time they guide you to pursue those interests.

    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.

    To the new international current and prospective students especially the graduate research students, I can assure you that ECU is a great place to study.

    ECU 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 for my doctorates degree.
