Expect to get your hands dirty, because there's a strong practical component in our courses. Most Bachelor of Science courses include work experience opportunities in an organisation that relates to your studies.
"My course gave me lots of hands-on experience"
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.
"The lecturers are of the highest standard and are always approachable and personable"
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.
"I was interested in a Masters program that would broaden my view on environmental issues"
I was excited to find that ECU offered exactly what I was looking for as the units in the Master of Environmental Science program are multidisciplinary, covering areas ranging from science to business.
The work integrated learning also attracted me to this course as it offers a good platform to transition into the working environment and an opportunity to apply the skills that I will have gained.
So far, the course has been amazing. The interactive sessions during the lecture seminars have been quite informative and provided a friendly environment to exchange ideas.
I’ve also enjoyed interacting with my course mates from different countries. It’s been great to share experiences with them.
