Course overview

Take a virtual tour of our facilities

Exercise science professionals work with athletes and the general population to develop sport and exercise programs that will improve their performance and maintain their wellbeing. This may include contributing to restoring people’s health and assisting clients with disabilities. 

In this course, you will gain theoretical and practical understanding of key sub-disciplines of exercise science, including exercise and sports physiology, biomechanics, motor control, motor learning and skill acquisition, and exercise and sports psychology. 

An emphasis on client-centred practice will help you to develop strong professional skills in interpersonal communication, critical thinking and problem solving.

You will work with individuals, teams and other health professionals to assess physical abilities, design and implement training programs, and conduct performance evaluations for clients of varying exercise experience and sporting backgrounds.

Your first year is interprofessional and is taken with students from other health disciplines. In your second and third years, your studies will focus on the sub-disciplines of exercise and sports science. 

The theoretical knowledge you gain in each of the sub-disciplines will provide the foundation for your laboratory sessions and field work activities.

Curtin has partnerships with the Fremantle Football Club and Hockey Australia, meaning you could find yourself working alongside some of Australia’s top athletes through practicum placement or research.

High achieving students may complete an additional honours year enabling them to undertake their own significant research project.
