Student stories

    ECU Speech Pathology graduate

    "It was a great hands-on opportunity to learn what a Speech Pathologist does"

    Speech Pathology is a blend of science and working with people and that was embedded throughout the course. We had practical units from first year where we would go out and observe Speech Pathologists and see how they worked and the environments they worked in. It was a great hands-on opportunity to learn what a Speech Pathologist does, so I was better prepared when I graduated.

    ECU Bachelor of Computer Science (Cyber Security major) graduate

    "I came to realise that ECU had a really good reputation when it came to collaboration with industry."

    During high school while researching courses and universities in my area of interest i.e. Computer Science, I came to realise that ECU offers a great combination of theoretical and applied coursework and had a really good reputation when it came to their collaboration with industry. During my final year of study I undertook the WIL (Work Integrated Learning) program and was able to participate in a government placement, an experience that completed my studies perfectly. I began this course with an interest in becoming a software developer, however the course has shaped my interests and I have graduated with a promising future in cyber security.

    ECU Youth Work graduate

    "ECU has helped me realise the type of youth worker I want to be"

    My study experience at ECU has been really enjoyable. The lecturers are extremely helpful, providing me with career advice as well as support within the course.

    So far, I've undertaken three work placements, and all have been valuable. Not only have they helped me put theory into practice, they’ve also helped me realise the type of youth worker I want to be.
