Student stories

    Sport, Recreation and Event Management

    "Work placements at sports organisations were extremely valuable"

    I have always wanted to work in sport and events, so ECU’s Sport, Recreation and Event Management course was a perfect choice, as it enabled me to mix the sport side of study with business.

    I had previously studied at two other universities in WA, and ECU is definitely my favourite. Everyone is friendly and the staff are very supportive and really want you to succeed.

    Work placements at a variety of sports organisations throughout my degree have been extremely valuable. I gained hands-on experience at organisations like the Perth Wildcats, West Perth Football Club, and Badminton WA.

    My greatest achievement was receiving the West Coast Eagles Award for Excellence. It was a great honour to achieve this award and I am extremely proud that my hard work paid off.

  • Sean Johnson

    Chemical Engineering

    "The lecturers at ECU are very approachable"

    Chemical Engineering student, Sean Johnson, talks about studying the course with Edith Cowan University (ECU). Sean discusses how the general first year is beneficial as it gives you the opportunity to consider which discipline is right for you, and there is the option to change.

    He talks about the practical nature of assignments in his course, particularly a recent assignment where he focused on beer brewing, applying his chemical engineering knowledge and process design and process criteria knowledge to the process. He says his lecturers are approachable, whether you're after information about your course or the unit you're studying. Sean chose to study Chemical Engineering at ECU because he knows the lecturers have first-hand experience in the workforce and they pass this knowledge onto their students.

    He says Chemical Engineers are high demand in the oil and gas industries, so it's important that he feels he's receiving the best possible skills and knowledge to be in the best possible position when he graduates.

    ECU Nursing and Midwifery graduate

    "ECU is renowned for offering the best nursing and midwifery courses that prepare students for the real world."

    The course was flexible, and I was able to work part-time while studying full-time with some classes online, all while managing a young family.

    My lecturers were approachable, encouraging and very knowledgeable in the subjects they taught, and I made some amazing lifelong friends who I now work with.
