The Bachelor of Applied Science (Exercise and Sport Science) develops the skills to integrate exercise and physical activity with disease prevention and the promotion of good health, rehabilitation, nutrition and sports performance.
Graduates are eligible to apply for membership with Exercise and Sport Science Australia and professional registration as an exercise scientist.
As an exercise and sport science student, you will learn how to integrate exercise and physical activity with health, sports performance and disease prevention. Exercise scientists help people recover from injury, maximise the performance of elite athletes, promote healthy ageing and generally improve people's health and wellbeing.
During this three year degree, your studies will cover all aspects of exercise and sport science, including musculoskeletal anatomy, body systems, muscle mechanics and training, neuroscience, nutrition, exercise testing and prescription, and motor control and learning. This program incorporates significant clinical and professional fieldwork opportunities, providing hands-on experience with real clients in a supervised environment. Through completion of a minimum of 140 hours of approved professional experience you will learn to effectively combine the academic components of the course with the practical abilities required of the profession.
As an exercise scientist accredited in Australia, graduates enjoy the privilege of being qualified within a country that possesses an outstanding reputation in this field. Graduates have the opportunity to utilise principles such as biomechanics, musculoskeletal rehabilitation and gait analysis to evaluate and improve the performance of a diverse range of clients.
To assist students to make informed choices about their study, we have identified and set out the Inherent Requirements for coursework award courses in exercise and sport science.
The University of Sydney welcomes and encourages applications from students with disabilities, and from diverse social and cultural backgrounds. Where there are physical, intellectual, cultural, religious or other factors that impact on a student's ability to meet the Inherent Requirements, the University will make reasonable adjustments to assist the student to meet the requirements. Please read the Inherent Requirements carefully as you consider your course choices.
The Bachelor of Applied Science (Exercise and Sport Science) course does not have a fixed ATAR for guaranteed entry. The ATAR information provided is an indication only and the actual required ATAR for entry may be higher or lower depending on student demand and availability of places in the course each year.
