  • "I got real-world experience with dolphins in Monkey Mia"
    Abbie Milne
    Abbie MilneConservation and Wildlife Biology graduate

    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"
    Alfred KoechSocial Science student

    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"
    Rebecca MacMillan, ECU Science graduate
    Rebecca MacMillanECU Science graduate

    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.
