Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Science

Federation University Australia

Become a sports scientist. Work in sports performance. Promote healthy living to communities. Help injured people through rehabilitation. With your degree at Federation University, your learning will be hands-on using our new Sport and Recreation Center and placements in the industry. In addition to the core subjects, you'll also specialize in your choice of exercise rehabilitation, health or teaching. Not only will you learn how to plan, implement and evaluate programs for athletes, but also for the general population. Our students love the amount of practical hours in this degree, where you are out in the industry learning from professionals. We also support you to get work experience throughout your degree to put your skills into action. Your subjects include health studies, injury prevention and motor control. When you graduate, you can apply for registration with Exercise and Sport Science Australia and other relevant sports organisations. You may even join our other graduates who've worked at Tennis Australia, Hockey Victoria and the Australian Football League. Or you may decide to continue your studies in exercise rehabilitation and exercise physiology with a Graduate Diploma of Clinical Exercise Physiology - or into teaching with a Master of Teaching.
