    I’ve always been really interested in the natural environment and concerned with the multitude of stresses which threaten its condition.

    ECU’s course offered the perfect avenue to enable me to understand the way catchments and ecosystems function and how we can successfully manage our environment and natural resources.

    The great thing about ECU is the combination of both theoretical and practical course components which I believe will make me highly employable.
