World Ready experience
Don't just take our word for it! Here's what some of our students have to say about why they chose to study at ECU.
"WAAPA’s Arts Management course really helped me find my place in the arts industry"
I have always craved an active role within the performing arts, but had no idea in what capacity this could be, I trusted the course to guide me in the right direction, and it did.
For me, the course operated in a two-fold way through building my theoretical knowledge of the practicalities of arts administration in the lecture room, and in pushing me to volunteer in intern positions in the industry to gain practical experience.
It was so beneficial to have the WAAPA name behind me when seeking these opportunities for development, enabling me to expand my networks and connections in the local industry. Ultimately, this led to my current position of Associate Producer at the Blue Room Theatre.
"Studying Criminology & Justice at ECU can prepare you for a wide range of occupations"
