"Being a mature, international student, I've felt welcome from day one"
My study experience thus far has only been amazing! One of the things that impresses me the most is the fact that ECU are really committed, being involved in both your study experience as well as your personal well-being. They offer assistance in both and I definitely feel they care about every individual student. The lecturers are the best in my field of study and are engaged with students. Being a mature, international student, I've felt welcome from day one.
My greatest achievement so far is definitely being accepted to study at WAAPA. I have worked as front-of-house staff for several student productions and volunteered at a few art events. This is an excellent way of getting in contact with organisations and individuals working in the industry. By the time I graduate, I'll have already acquired valuable experience in the field.
I love the vibrant art scene in Perth – there are a variety of events, lots are for free. Apart from art, Perth offers so much entertainment and relaxation. The parks are beautiful and well kept. I love that fact that I feel safe in Perth and that people respect one another.
"WAAPA sets you up with a solid foundation to build your career"
The course covered everything from technical knowledge to crucial people-managing skills, when dealing with musicians or fellow workers in other departments. It's a great learning environment and the connections I have made from WAAPA have proven invaluable to my career thus far.
"Going to WAAPA not only gives you a top of the line education in your chosen field, but guarantees you a group of life-long friends"
The people you meet and work with over your time at WAAPA become your second family – and having that support network for the rest of your career is so important.
My WAAPA family extends across the world now and constantly continues to grow, presenting all manner of career opportunities.
