stories

  • "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!"
    Maharshi Maharjan
    Maharshi MaharjanMaster of Project Mangement graduate

    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.

    Angela MarcheseProject Management and Human Resource Management student

    I graduated from high school as one of the top ten achievers in my year. ECU’s School of Business and Law has an outstanding reputation so I applied for direct entry using my high school results. The facilities at ECU are exceptional and I feel so lucky to have access to them. All students have access to unlimited Wi-Fi, library resources and computer facilities as well as private study rooms and areas. The lecturers are qualified, helpful and friendly, making me comfortable in my studies. These facilities give me the ability to complete every assignment to a desired standard. I also have the opportunity to complete a work placement for a company provided by ECU that will count as credit towards my degree.
