  • "My course gave me lots of hands-on experience"

    Zigourney NielsenECU Biological Sciences student

    I’ve always been passionate about wildlife and the environment, so I chose to study Biological Sciences at ECU. Before starting my studies, I didn’t know how hands‑on my course would be.

    I’ve participated in a lot of lab work, been able to use modern equipment and even gone on camps as well. The lecturers have been amazing. They are so enthusiastic about the subjects they teach and are extremely knowledgeable.

    Vanessa StylianouEnvironmental Management graduate

    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.
