"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.
"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.
