stories

  • "I chose ECU because the course came highly recommended, and was recognised across Australia"
    Gemma Wright
    Gemma WrightECU Paramedical Science student

    The Paramedical Science course at ECU has fantastic lecturers who are very active in the Paramedicine community. They're approachable, knowledgeable and passionate.Within the course we are exposed to really diverse learning environments, including an ambulance, a simulation centre which mimics hospitals, as well as a number of practical-learning scenarios across the campus, and at the Police Academy next door.The course isn't all theory-based, which is fantastic. I've found that the course structure consolidates theory with practical units and work experience.

    I've had the opportunity to work at events giving first aid to the community, as well as complete placements with GPs and in aged care. I was also attracted to the prospects of travelling with my degree and knew ECU has affiliations with the UK and Northern Territory.

  • "I wanted the opportunity to work anywhere in Australia as well as overseas"
    Meghann LavertyParamedical Science student

    When I applied for Paramedical Science at ECU, it was the only university in WA offering the nationally-accredited course and I've stayed because of the industry partnerships with St John Ambulance Northern Territory and Falck.

    I really enjoy working with the lecturers; they all have practical experience out on road and within the industry so they can continually educate us, while providing a lot of guidance and support.
