Student stories

    Maria Daniele

    Bachelor of International Hotel and Resort Management student

    "Being amongst this great, positive, buzzing energy at campus is the best feeling and I look forward to it every week"

    I chose to study International Hotel and Resort Management, as I was already working in the industry and it had a range of units that would help me in upskilling.

    The lecturers I have had are very supportive and helpful. The skills and knowledge I've gained help me with my current job, as I am more multi-skilled and assist now in different areas. The ongoing learning also helped me with my other units, one thing flows into another which has been a big help.

    ECU has a great range of support services for students. Having not studied in many years, it took a while to re-adjust to studying at university level. The learning advisors are great, and have helped me significantly with my assignments, particularly with assisting how to write in the third person and using academic language.

    "ECU offers a high level of support for my studies"

    The skills I have developed throughout my time at ECU have been invaluable. I was fortunate enough to complete an internship within the ECU’s Corporate Marketing and Events Team, which gave me the opportunity to apply my learnings from my studies in a real world environment.

    Balancing family, work and study has been the biggest obstacle during my studies, however ECU offers a high level of support to enable me to keep pursuing my studies and move forward with a smile on my face.

    ECU Finance graduate

    "I chose ECU because it offered fully online units with fantastic student support, which was ideal when I was working full time at the start of my degree"

    My entire world view has been expanded by studying at ECU. I had no real idea how complicated Finance was before I started. The further into my studies I have progressed, the more I have leant on things I picked up in the first year introductory classes. The skills I have picked up during my course have always had a compounding effect and I now feel comfortable to market myself to employers.

    The lecturers are deeply knowledgeable and very helpful when you have concerns or questions. I have met many fellow students through my studies that I now call friends.

    I can't recommend ECU highly enough, especially given their flexibility and world class facilities.
