Student stories

  • Gerald Chikwanda

    Gerald Chikwanda

    ECU Master of Professional Accounting graduate

    When I think of my experience studying at the School of Business and Law at ECU, 'exhilarating' is the first thing that comes to mind

    I came to this country by myself - I had no family here at all. I found ECU, and Perth in general to be incredibly welcoming and I felt very comfortable.

    The academic staff were just awesome. The lecturers were friendly, open and very helpful. Interacting with my peers and my lecturers helped to build my personal confidence. I have also been lucky enough to secure an accounting position since graduating. However, I feel the biggest achievement of this journey were the smiles on my parents faces when I graduated. They really sacrificed a fair bit to get me here and I feel like I've done them proud.
