Based on the ECU student reviews that we've collected, here's some advice for future students:
Prepare your week, be organised and don't fall behind or leave things to the last minute;
Consider the Uni prep course, it will give you a better understanding than school does;
If you can, look for opportunities to work in your industry while studying, it's better to grow a network before you finish;
Utilise the teaching staff/faculties - ask questions, understand better and find out about placement opportunities;
Don't cram - try to study during the term session;
Make use of the student support services & systems;
If there's an industry trip or networking night, make sure you go, ask questions and get peoples contact details.

Positives: I need to stand out in a competitive market. Community service, volunteering, mentoring, membership in club or society, leadership positions (secretary, treasurer, president etc.) are all viewed very favourably by employers. I will take every opportunity to attend any CPA or Chartered Accountants (Australia and New Zealand) event – meet with employers, learn to sell myself and find out about potential career paths. Try to have a goal or vision of what I would like to be doing in five years’ time. Review frequently the CPA or Chartered Accountants (Australia and New Zealand) home pages for events or information regarding the accounting profession. I have to talk to as many employers and practicing accountants as I can. Sometimes I still need to look for opportunities and not wait for things to last minutes to happen. Continue to be positive!

Negatives: NO
