"Anything is achievable"
Coming from a farming background, I was always interested in studying biology. So I made the decision to move here and begin my studies at ECU.
ECU offered me a course with exciting fieldwork and lecturers who were so welcoming. They even helped me find work experience positions! I have completed volunteer work at the Western Australian Herbarium.
I’ve learned that anything is achievable if you set your mind to it and focus on your goals and dreams.
