Student stories

    Jesse Hesford

    ECU Exercise & Sports Science graduate. Former Head of 1st Team Performance Analysis, Perth Glory

    The course prepared me for a role with Perth Glory Football Club.

    The football performance major is not just about the football. It’s not just about being on-ground, learning about the tactics or the principle of play; it’s so much more than that. Like learning about skill acquisition or learning about leadership and sports psychology, which was of great interest to me.

    I have found ECU's industry partnerships really valuable

    I was looking to study Civil Engineering and, after touring the state-of-the-art engineering facilities at ECU, my choice of university became really easy.

    ECU Engineering also has a strong community feel and there are always opportunities to get involved, including engineering clubs, international study tours, volunteer roles, research and local projects and campus activities. These help you gain lifelong skills.

    ECU Bachelor of Science (Biomedical Science) graduate

    I could not have asked for a better university experience

    There was a great balance of laboratory and practical work at ECU, alongside the theory and lectures. I now have a strong understanding of the human body, and with extensive practical experience, I believe I can transition into studying medicine. I could not have asked for a better university experience to prepare me for the next step in my life and career.
