A world from our alumni

“I have to say, this was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Apart from all the skills and knowledge I gained, the ECU lecturers were fantastic, the study was fascinating, and my degree was a fast-track way to get hands-on experience for my future career. In my second year I even got to go on an exchange visit to California State University where I had, as they say, an absolute blast.”
