ECU International Hotel and Resort Management graduate

    "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. Since graduating, I have been accepted into the graduate program at Accor hotels, where I will be relocating to Broome.

    ECU Master of Project Management graduate

    "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!"

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

    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.
