As an exercise and sport science student, you will learn how to integrate exercise and physical activity with health, sports performance and disease prevention. Exercise scientists help people recover from injury, maximise the performance of elite athletes, promote healthy ageing and generally improve people’s health and wellbeing.
During this three year degree, your studies will cover all aspects of exercise and sport science, including musculoskeletal anatomy, body systems, muscle mechanics and training, neuroscience, nutrition, exercise testing and prescription, and motor control and learning. This program incorporates significant clinical and professional fieldwork opportunities, providing hands-on experience with real clients in a supervised environment. Through completion of a minimum of 140 hours of approved professional experience you will learn to effectively combine the academic components of the course with the practical abilities required of the profession.
