Bachelor of Exercise Science
The Bachelor of Exercise Science provides students with an understanding of the biological responses during exercise, and the response to exercise by people of different ages and physical conditions. The body responds differently to various exercise doses and students will learn how to measure these differences to then be able to recommend optimal exercise doses in the treatment of disease. The Bachelor of Exercise Science will produce graduates who are critical thinkers, with strong biological understanding, and who can clearly communicate with patients. Learning strategies include a mix of lectures, tutorials and practical sessions using problem solving, case studies and clinical reasoning.
The Bachelor of Exercise Science provides a strong knowledge base for students interested in ‘exercise as the new medicine’, providing pathways into further study to become a Doctor, Physiotherapist or Exercise Physiologist. The Bachelor of Exercise Science is the preferred pathway for entry into Bond’s Doctor of Physiotherapy (DPT)*, a two year full-time course. Graduates will also be well placed to gain employment as cardiac technologists, sleep technicians, respiratory technicians, trainee sonographers and pharmaceutical representatives.
