Student stories

  • Gemma Wright

    Gemma Wright

    ECU Paramedical Science student

    "I chose ECU because the course came highly recommended, and was recognised across Australia"

    The Paramedical Science course at ECU has fantastic lecturers who are very active in the Paramedicine community. They're approachable, knowledgeable and passionate.Within the course we are exposed to really diverse learning environments, including an ambulance, a simulation centre which mimics hospitals, as well as a number of practical-learning scenarios across the campus, and at the Police Academy next door.The course isn't all theory-based, which is fantastic. I've found that the course structure consolidates theory with practical units and work experience.

    I've had the opportunity to work at events giving first aid to the community, as well as complete placements with GPs and in aged care. I was also attracted to the prospects of travelling with my degree and knew ECU has affiliations with the UK and Northern Territory.

    Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical Power) Honours student

    "As a mature age student, I was apprehensive about ‘going back to school'"

    I chose ECU for the high quality of courses, the friendly atmosphere on campus, combined with the opportunity to study a quality engineering course in regional WA – without having to move to the city, find accommodation, and change jobs immediately.

    I’ve found there is a great balance in the course between theory and practice, with field trips and opportunities to meet people form relevant industries.

    As a mature age student, I was apprehensive about ‘going back to school’, however the other students and lecturers could not have been friendlier or more accommodating.

    I completed Year 12 many years ago, so was able to apply direct to ECU with my old tertiary entrance score. The process was really easy – had I know it would be this easy, I might have gone back to study many years ago!

    Sport, Recreation and Event Management

    "When I enrolled at ECU, little did I know that it would lead to me being a part of something historic"

    In my last semester of my Sport, Recreation and Event Management course I got an industry placement in the Events Department of the Fremantle Dockers Football Club.

    Due to my positive work ethic, I was offered casual employment. When Fremantle made it to their first ever home preliminary final, it was so exciting to be a part of it all! On the Thursday before the finals I was suddenly asked to fly over to Melbourne to fill in for a permanent staff member. For the Grand Final, I was in charge of managing security, caterers and audio technicians.

    All the skills and theory I picked up in my years at ECU helped me play a part in running the biggest function the club ever had – their historic first grand final.
