  • "Invaluable student experiences"
    Alan WatkinsLaw student

    ECU Law student Alan Watkins talks about the unexpected work experience he's enjoyed while studying here.

  • "My parliamentary internship gave me insight into the political arena of law"
    Rachel RobsonECU Law graduate

    It has definitely assisted me with my career as my research paper was published and discussed in Parliament, and my contribution acknowledged by the MP.

    Apart from the internship, I was fortunate to undertake a work placement program with the Law Society of Western Australia, in their Law Access Division. This gave me an insight into the pro bono area of work for law. I’ve had a great experience at ECU.

    You are taught to challenge yourself outside of a textbook and incorporate theoretical knowledge into practical experience.

  • "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!"

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

    The course has helped me greatly with developing time management skills. 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.

    Whilst studying at ECU I had the opportunity to complete an internship at Landgate. This opportunities helped link theory to practice in the contemporary project environment. The skills I have learnt, and the network I have been able to build though out this experience will undoubtedly help me to excel in my professional career.
