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.
"My ECU studies have taught me that hard work pays off"
My study experience has been amazing and I am grateful for the connections I have built with friends from my futsal team, who I now consider my family.
I first began my journey with ECU through the Indigenous University Orientation Course. This pathway gave me the guidance and time to help me pick a career I am passionate about.
The lecturers offer great support and will always do their best to help you out when you need.
My ECU studies have taught me that hard work pays off and I am proving that more and more each semester, as I get closer to the end of my studies.
"My undergraduate journey at ECU has been amazing"
Returning to studies mid-life, I have embarked on an academic journey by undertaking the Bachelor of Laws undergraduate course.
The flexibility, convenience and support offered by ECU were pivotal in my decision to take up this challenge. The lecturers and staff are extremely supportive, encouraging and approachable, and always provide the help I need. I have found the culture at ECU very empowering.
As the recipient of the Cullen McLeod Prize in Contract Law II in 2018, I now have the chance to complete an internship at a law firm. This is a great opportunity to apply the theory I've learnt to real world practice.
"The internship I completed in my final semester has been the perfect stepping stone to advance my career"
I chose to study International Hotel and Resort Management at ECU because I had heard of the practical nature of the course. My lecturers were very experienced in the hospitality and tourism industry and provided real life examples and case studies to link theory with current industry practice.
I was lucky enough to take part in the Borneo study tour, and no words can describe how amazing that experience was. In my final semester at ECU, I was able to secure an internship placement. That experience was great, as it allowed me to put what I had learnt into practice, at the same time as learning plenty of new skills from my supervisors and colleagues. Since graduating, I have been lucky enough to be accepted in to the graduate program at Accor hotels, where I will be relocating to Broome. This is truly my greatest achievement so far, and I am excited for the new challenges ahead of me.
