Exercise is increasingly understood by the health profession as a form of medicine. The people responsible for administering this medicine are exercise scientists and exercise physiologists, and this degree allows students to become accredited as both. You will be provided with a deep knowledge of the human body and how it is affected by exercise and learn how to design and deliver safe and effective exercise interventions for clients with chronic and complex medical conditions. In addition to the foundational coursework of this degree, students will complete a minimum of 360 hours of supervised clinical placement in exercise physiology enabling students to put theory into practice. Graduates secure the skills required to competently assess, design and deliver exercise programs to improve health and performance, prevent chronic conditions, and treat or manage clinical conditions with a strong focus on achieving behavioural change.

Accredited exercise physiologists (AEPs) work in areas like return-to-work assessment, chronic disease management, exercise prescription or special populations, weight loss management, musculoskeletal and cardiopulmonary rehabilitation. These roles may be within private practice or the public healthcare system. AEPs can register with Medicare, DVA, NDIS and private health funds to be a healthcare provider.
As a graduate, you’ll be eligible for dual accreditation as an exercise physiologist and exercise scientist through Exercise and Sports Science Australia (subject to application).
