Bachelor of Exercise Science and Rehabilitation

University of Wollongong

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00102E

This course covers the areas of anatomy, physiology, exercise physiology, exercise prescription, clinical exercise physiology, biomechanics, and neuromechanics. Scientific training will improve students skills in data gathering and analysis, physiological systems integration and, most importantly, understanding the fundamental processes behind both healthy and unhealthy human bodies. This scientific foundation will enable students to adapt to a variety of situations in the workplace.


4 years full-time or part-time equivalent This degree includes a work experience component that requires 140 hours of placement in a community, sporting, scientific or commercial exercise setting, as well as an additional 360 hours of clinical work experience in order to gain advanced clinical training for work as an exercise physiologist. Completion of these hours is required in order to graduate. This experience is an essential part of the learning process and will allow students to put into practice what they've learned in the course to ensure that they are work-ready for industry practice in both public and private facilities with both a generally healthy as well as clinical focus.

Standard entry requirements

DOMESTIC STUDENTS - ATAR-BASED ADMISSION OPTIONS Guaranteed entry selection ranks: Entry to this course can be gained with: Minimum ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank) International Baccalaureate (IB) Interstate equivalent (such as the Victorian ENTER or Queensland OP) Results in an overseas qualification deemed equivalent to Australian year 12. The minimum score for guaranteed entry (or for consideration if this course has limited places) is an ATAR-Selection Rank of 94 or an IB of 36. This includes the effect of adjustment factors. Adjustment factors, such as the subjects you are studying, the area in which you live or equity and access schemes, are taken into consideration and these will be combined with your ATAR to adjust your selection rank and make it higher than your ATAR. These adjustments used to be called bonus points. ASSUMED KNOWLEDGE AND RECOMMENDED STUDIES The University assumes students will have studied any 2 units English and any four units of Science/Mathematics. Ideally, students will have studied Chemistry. INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS Applicants need to have achieved the required score in a qualification equivalent to the completion of 13 years of schooling in Australia. In order to succeed in the students chosen course, it is assumed they have completed relevant subjects in your senior high school studies or other relevant qualifications. This is particularly important for degrees which have a strong basis in Mathematics or Science.


This course is provisionally accredited with Exercise and Sports Science Australia (ESSA). Once reaccreditation is awarded, graduates of the Bachelor of Exercise Science and Rehabilitation are eligible to apply for accreditation as Exercise Physiologists with Exercise and Sports Science Australia (ESSA).
