    ECU Biological Sciences student

    "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.
