M90 Bachelor of Science (Exercise Science and Rehabilitation)

The Bachelor of Science (Exercise Science and Rehabilitation) course is designed to give students the opportunity to gain in-depth knowledge and sound practical skills in Exercise Science and Rehabilitation.  This course articulates with the three year BSc (Exercise and Sports Science).


Students specialising in Exercise Science and Rehabilitation must complete a twenty-two unit major (330cp's) in Exercise and Sports Science, which includes six Australian Association for Exercise and Sports Science (AAESS) accredited Exercise Physiologist fourth year units (90cp's).  In addition, they must complete eight units (120cp's) in the Professional Accreditation Supporting Major.



The course is available by full-time or part-time study on Joondalup campus.



Exercise and Sports Science major – 330 credit points (22 units)

Supporting Major in Professional Accreditation – 120 credit points (8 units)
