"I'm so grateful I was able to do a practicum placement – it was significant to my success and led to paid employment."
I chose Nutrition and Health Promotion as I was interested in the idea of helping people become aware of how easy healthy eating could be and empowering vulnerable populations to make healthier choices.
The lecturers were engaging, knowledgeable and most importantly approachable, and I felt comfortable asking for help when I needed it.
The highlight of my degree was the practicum placement I undertook. I was able to use my knowledge in a practical setting and it kick-started my career, which led to a number of amazing opportunities. I am so grateful I was able to do a practicum placement as it was significant to my success and it led to paid employment.
Following on from this, I landed my dream job at Foodbank WA. This wouldn't have been possible without help from my lecturers and the practicum placements that ECU offers.
"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.
