Bachelor of Sport and Exercise Science - 274JA
Through this course, you’ll develop a broad understanding of all aspects of sport and exercise science and explore the complexity of human movement, while developing strategies to assist athletes in reaching their full potential.
Having access to UC’s innovative and unique Sporting Commons gives you unprecedented connections with community and professional sporting organisations right here on campus. You’ll be encouraged to network with and become part of the Canberra sports community in the company of Australia's leading elite sports teams and research centres.
During your time at UC, you’ll undertake regular Work Integrated Learning (WIL) in the form of professional internships and will develop a research project in an area of sport and exercise science of particular interest to you.
As this course is accredited by Exercise and Sports Science Australia (ESSA), upon graduation you can submit an application for exercise science membership. This course has a particularly strong link between professional placements and employment, with many interns securing future roles even before graduation.
High performing students may be eligible for enrolment in the Bachelor of Sport Studies (Honours), or if you’d prefer to progress to postgraduate study, you could undertake the Master of Sport and Exercise Science (Research) or one of many other related master’s programs in the Faculty of Health.
