"My 4 years at ECU were without a doubt some of the best of my life!"
Being a mature age student, I assumed that I wouldn't make many friends as that was just for the school leavers, but I have made friends for life with people of all ages and nationalities. These friendships made for the most positive experience. The lecturers and tutors were consistently supportive and it was clear they really wanted their students to succeed.
I loved how ECU offered practical, work-ready learning methods, combined with the latest theory. I didn't realise how interactive the course would be, there were so many real life scenarios which made me feel much more comfortable about going out into the workforce.
My greatest achievement was graduating with the School of Business and Law medal for 2018. It was an incredible honour that I got to share with my family, ECU friends and all my lecturers and tutors who encouraged me to aim as high as I could.

"The internship I completed in my final semester has been the perfect stepping stone to advance my career"
I chose to study International Hotel and Resort Management at ECU because I had heard of the practical nature of the course. My lecturers were very experienced in the hospitality and tourism industry and provided real life examples and case studies to link theory with current industry practice.
I was lucky enough to take part in the Borneo study tour, and no words can describe how amazing that experience was. In my final semester at ECU, I was able to secure an internship placement. That experience was great, as it allowed me to put what I had learnt into practice, at the same time as learning plenty of new skills from my supervisors and colleagues. Since graduating, I have been lucky enough to be accepted in to the graduate program at Accor hotels, where I will be relocating to Broome. This is truly my greatest achievement so far, and I am excited for the new challenges ahead of me.
