"UniPrep was a great pathway into my undergraduate course"
I chose ECU after a lengthy consideration of which university could provide me with the best designed course in my chosen field.
ECU combined psychology and business with a major in HR that I felt would give me the best employability skills.
I genuinely believe that UniPrep offered by ECU provided me with both the opportunities to investigate my chosen career, and also gave me the transferrable skills I now apply every day.
The support and encouragement I have received from my lecturers and tutors has been incredible. ECU has been an amazing experience for me academically.
