I chose to study the Diploma of Communications at PIBT to gain entry into ECU’s Bachelor of Communications because I knew that the small size classes would ease my transition into university. PIBT has made it simple for me to move to a new country away from my family. The personalised support I have received has given me confidence in my abilities to succeed in my studies. ECU’s reputation preceded itself: the media facilities are amazing and fully up-to-date; the lecturers are supportive and very knowledgeable; and the students are so welcoming. I love studying at the Mount Lawley Campus so much that I’m considering continuing on with a Masters degree after I complete my Bachelor degree. show less

After completing my Diploma of Management at PIBT, I enrolled in the Bachelor of Hotel and Resort Management at ECU. I was aware of ECU’s great reputation in the field of hospitality and my course offered a six-month internship, which was extremely appealing to me. I did my internship at the Four Points Sheraton in Perth and I got paid for three out of the 6-month internship. Working in the real world was very exciting and it gave me a lot of confidence in the skills I learned during my studies. I was so pleased to get positive feedback from my employer and guests. show less
