Specific Course Completion Details
Before entry to Year 2, you must hold a current Senior First Aid Certificate (or equivalent). Students graduate with the Bachelor of Science (Exercise, Sports and Rehabilitation Science).
Bachelor Degrees typically contain a series of units which may include compulsory (core), optional or elective units to cater for student preferences. They may contain a range of majors, streams and/or minors for students to choose from to pursue learning in a specialised area of study.
In this course students will undertake a combination of theoretical and practical subjects as well as work integrated learning. Students will develop a strong understanding of the human body and human health in first year. Subsequent years will be devoted to more intensive study which will further develop knowledge and skills related to exercise sports and rehabilitation science. Development of practical skills in laboratory settings can be applied in a range of settings, working with people from all age groups. Emphasis is placed on professional development and strong interpersonal communication skills which are attributes of client-centred practice.
