Work with individuals, teams and other groups to assess physical abilities and design and implement exercise training programs.

In this course you’ll gain theoretical and practical understanding of exercise and sports physiology, biomechanics, motor control, motor learning and skill acquisition, and exercise and sports psychology.

The course emphasises client-centred practice to help you develop strong interpersonal communication, critical thinking and problem solving skills.

In your first year you will learn the foundations of exercise science and study interprofessional units with students from other health disciplines. In your second and third years, you’ll specialise in exercise and sports science, and undertake laboratory and fieldwork.

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

All Australian students studying an undergraduate degree are automatically awarded a Commonwealth supported place.

*The indicative first-year fee is calculated on 200 credit points, which is the typical full-time study load per year, however some courses require additional study to be completed, in which case the fee will be higher than that shown.

This fee is a guide only. It may vary depending on the units you choose and do not include incidental fees (such as lab coats or art supplies) or the cost of your textbooks - visit other fees and charges for more information.
