Overview

Do you dream of coaching athletes or inspiring people to achieve better health and wellbeing? Are you fascinated by how the human adapts to participation in sport and exercise? Are you keen to probe the minds of elite athletes and uncover what gives them the winning edge? The Bachelor of Sport and Exercise Science can turn your sporting passion into a career. 

This degree provides a comprehensive study of sport sciences and how the human body responds to exercise. You’ll learn about human movement, biomechanics, movement control, exercise physiology, exercise and sport psychology, coaching and exercise prescription, with the opportunity to specialise in either business management, physical education or strength, conditioning and coaching. 

Our graduates work in many areas of sport and health, including sports psychology, nutrition, teaching, coaching, performance testing, health promotion and education. 

This degree may also provide a pathway to the Master of Teaching that can prepare students as PDHPE teachers in secondary settings.

Course Learning Outcome

GA1: Intellectual rigour

Demonstrate information literacy, critical analysis, problem solving and decision making in sport and exercise science.

GA2: Creativity

Demonstrate innovative and creative responses and solutions to problems encountered by professionals in sport and exercise science

GA3: Ethical practice

Demonstrate knowledge and application of professional conduct, ethics, legal principles and client centred care consistent with professional standards of conduct and ethical practice.

GA4: Knowledge of a discipline

Apply and integrate knowledge of evidence-based practice in sport and exercise science, including the use of technology and digital practices, to deliver a broad range of services.

GA5: Lifelong learning

Demonstrate professional self-development in the field of sport and exercise science through self-evaluation of practice and inter-professional practice.

GA6: Communication and social skills

Use a range of modalities to communicate effectively with clients and other health professionals and maintain appropriate documentation and records of services.

GA7: Cultural competence

Practice in a safe, respectful and inclusive way that is responsive to the diverse needs of people, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, gender and sexually diverse persons, persons of culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, and persons living with a disability.

You'll complete 140-hours of exercise science placement in the final year of your course. Professional placements provide the opportunity to apply theory and knowledge in practical settings.

Placements are undertaken under professional supervision in clinical settings, the health and fitness industry, community and professional sport, elite programs of state and national sport organisations, schools, academies of sport, and within the wider sport, recreation and leisure industries.

The types of positions can include, but are not limited to, assisting exercise physiologists, personal trainers, health educators, strength and conditioning or sports coaches, sporting organisations, academies or institutions, event coordinators or recreation officers.

Professional experience placements require students to fulfil certain pre-requisites prior to attending any placements (e.g. a working with children check, immunisation and National Police Certificate). Prior to applying for this course, please consider the important information regarding these requirements.
