Why I Studied Marine & Freshwater Biology and Environmental Sciences With ECU – Holly’s Story
March 1, 2020
My name is Holly Winkle and I’m studying
Environmental Science and Marine & Freshwater Biology at ECU.
ECU was extremely flexible for my degree. It gave me the opportunity to study within
a number of faculties as well as a range of units within my degree.
What really surprised me about ECU was how much field experience there was. Going out
in the field, working, networking and really practising what I learnt in lectures outdoors,
which is really important for the filed I was studying.
Since graduating from ECU, I now work for a number or organisations, doing a range of
jobs, including working in labs, as well as with penguins.
ECU provided me with all of the theory and field experience to use this in practice out
in the field.
