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

  • "My course allowed me to do things most people only dream about"
    Marcus Cosentino
    Marcus CosentinoECU Biological Sciences graduate

    Fieldwork is an important part of the Biological Sciences course. I was able to help with reptile surveys and research projects all over the state.

    These opportunities took me to stunning areas of WA, including the Kimberley, and allowed me to get up close and personal with elusive species of native fauna that most people don't even know exist.
