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.
"I got real-world experience with dolphins in Monkey Mia"
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 life‑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.
"Passionate about people? Study Social Science"
Social Science is the scientific study of human society and social relationships. It's a broad discipline that can lead to a range of career directions.
In this video Alfred Koech talks about his experiences as a Social Science student at ECU. Alfred came here from Kenya to study and to pursue his passion – working with people.
"Anything is achievable"
Coming from a farming background, I was always interested in studying biology. So I made the decision to move here and begin my studies at ECU.
ECU offered me a course with exciting fieldwork and lecturers who were so welcoming. They even helped me find work experience positions! I have completed volunteer work at the Western Australian Herbarium.
I’ve learned that anything is achievable if you set your mind to it and focus on your goals and dreams.
