Student stories

  • Marcus Cosentino

    Marcus Cosentino

    ECU Biological Sciences graduate

    My course allowed me to do things most people only dream about

    Fieldwork is an important part of the Biological Sciences course. I was able to help with reptile surveys and research projects all over the state.

    These opportunities took me to stunning areas of WA, including the Kimberley, and allowed me to get up close and personal with elusive species of native fauna that most people don't even know exist.

  • Mia Thompson

    Mia Thompson

    WAAPA Dance graduate

    The teachers pushed me further than I believed I could go, they pushed me out of my comfort zone

    WAAPA really helped prepare me for my future as a professional dancer.

    ECU Bachelor of Arts (Majoring in Psychology and Human Resource Management)

    The longer I've been here, the more I'm falling in love with Perth

    One of the main reasons I decided to study in ECU is because I wanted a new and modern university atmosphere. I also heard the teaching quality is good here and that's important for my development and learning in university. I chose to study psychology at ECU because this uni focuses on research as well as theory and I have an interest in becoming a researcher in the future.

    And, the longer I've been here, the more I’m falling in love with Perth.
