    It’s one of the best choices I’ve ever made

    I had never planned on getting a tertiary education until the pandemic affected my career. Now, I believe it’s one of the best choices I’ve ever made. I love attending the South-West campus, it’s a beautiful place to learn – I truly enjoy what I am learning in my course and being taught by and working with like-minded people.

    I knew I was in the right field

    A key aspect of my course was my 4th year practicum. This is where I knew I was in the right field. The face-to-face experience, the pressure-free learning and endless support from the prac coordinator made my experience amazing. To cap it all off, following graduation I was offered a position at ECU’s Vario Wellness Clinic!
