"I’ve always been fascinated by the subject of Security. And these days, it’s becoming more and more important in our society. That’s why I chose to study Counter Terrorism, Security and Intelligence at ECU. I found learning to be fun and exciting. I was very impressed by the extensive knowledge of all the lecturers and their ability to challenge your thinking whilst still keeping you focused on what’s important. Several of the units really opened my eyes and taught me about many different cultures. The ECU campus is fantastic, and in my three years here I’ve met some great people who I believe will be my friends for life. "
