    Vinita Pillai
    Vinita PillaiBachelor of Science (Nursing) student

    ECU was my first choice for studying nursing because of the flexibility the university provides – I wanted to study somewhere that I could also manage my family, work and home commitments.

    My experience at ECU so far has been remarkable, the staff always strive to provide the best education and support to students. There is a really friendly vibe among all the students, and the cultural diversity gives you an opportunity to understand people from a wide range of nationalities.

    My studies have helped me gain vital skills and knowledge and I look forward to completing my nursing degree and pursue my dream career in clinical research and trials.
