Course Structure

Postgraduate coursework degrees and combined (coursework and research) degrees comprise a number of units. Refer to the course structure for more information.

Why study exercise science?

  • You will be introduced to advanced level units within the various sub-disciplines that are informed by the latest research developments and contemporary professional practice. As part of this learning, you’ll acquire knowledge of the process and conduct of research in the biological and behavioural sciences as this applies to the field of Exercise Science
  • In addition to learning cognitive skills involved in these advanced level units, several units involve learning advanced technical and measurement skills through tutorials and laboratories. Most core and elective units for this degree offer, at the graduate level, opportunities for students to plan, prepare and conduct small research projects, and then analyse the data and report findings in both written and oral formats

  • You’ll have the opportunity to execute small research projects within many of the units for this degree. This avenue may then be extended for superior students with the opportunity to undertake up to four units of research provided you achieve the pre-requisites for this pathway. The requirement of an industry practicum for all students provides you the opportunity to relate your newly acquired knowledge and skills in an industry setting with an experienced host or mentor
