Student stories

  • Biological Sciences and Human Biology student, Zoe Mputhia

    Zoe Mputhia

    ECU Biological Sciences

    "What amazed me is the amount of practical units my course has"

    While considering my options for study, the amount of research done by the university and their facilities was a top priority. I was really impressed by ECU's research, facilities and achievements, and this led me to apply to study here.

    What amazed me is the amount of practical units that my course has – this really opens your mind and widens your experience, preparing you for life after university. The laboratory facilities and experiments I have been able to conduct have truly been amazing.

    Also, I got the opportunity to do work experience with lab technicians conducting research on ALS. This experience made me realise that the practical units carried out in my lab classes were very similar to what the scientists were doing in the labs and this was immensely gratifying.

    Studying at ECU has been an amazing experience for me.

    I wanted to pursue a career that would allow me to work outdoors. I chose the ECU course because of how practical it was. The facilities were great, the lecturers were really helpful and I made lifeā€‘long friends.

    I was also able to get real-world work experience with the Department of Environment and Conservation in Monkey Mia at the dolphin reserve. It was one of my favourite experiences throughout uni.
