"ECU is definitely more hands-on"
I have a passion for helping people and a passion for food, so putting them together comes into nutrition.
ECU is definitely more hands-on, that was a big aspect of the course that I enjoyed.
Being at ECU really opened my eyes to a whole new opportunity for where I can take my nutrition degree.
"Improving community health"
Master of Public Health student, Rena Vithiatharan, talks about studying the course with ECU. Rena discusses why she chose to study Public Health to equip her to work with communities and working with people to improve their health and their lives. Her course covers a broad spectrum of public health issues, from communicable diseases, epidemiology, aspects of leadership and strategic decision making.
"I wanted the skills to implement and evaluate health promotion and public health programs"
I decided to study Health Science at ECU, as I wanted to become a health care professional and help improve the lives and wellbeing of others within a community. I have a strong passion for working with people and an interest in the field of Alcohol & Other Drugs, which led me to choose the health promotion and addiction study majors, as they go hand-in-hand. The lecturers have been so friendly and welcoming and I love ECU's facilities, in particular, the library resources and all the cafés.
