Course Information

You’ll develop knowledge and skills in preparation for work in the allied health industry. The course is accredited by ESSA so you will be eligible to apply for accreditation status. The course is designed to provide a holistic understanding of the use of exercise as a modality in the treatment of musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, metabolic and other chronic and complex conditions.

Students who meet certain criteria (contact the Course Coordinator for details) can apply to complete a 24-point dissertation in addition to the coursework components. Examination of the dissertation will mimic the BSc Honours thesis examination, so that an Honours-equivalent grade can be created to allow graduates to be ranked for Higher Degree by research scholarships.

Depending on the applicant’s background knowledge from their previous studies at bachelor level, this master's course may be undertaken as a 72-point (three semester) or 96-point (four semester) program, or the part-time equivalent.

The course comprises 12 core units, which address the major knowledge and skill components for this allied health profession, as well as opportunities for mentoring and knowledge application within a series of clinical placements.

For students wishing to make the transition to exercise and sport science from other cognate disciplines, this course makes provision for up to 24 points of conversion units, selected on advice from the course coordinator.
