    Abbie MilneConservation and Wildlife Biology graduate

    I wanted to pursue a career that would allow me to work outdoors. I chose the ECU course because of how practical it was. The facilities were great, the lecturers were really helpful and I made life‑long friends.

    I was also able to get real-world work experience with the Department of Environment and Conservation in Monkey Mia at the dolphin reserve. It was one of my favourite experiences throughout uni.
