UQ's Bachelor of Clinical Exercise Physiology (Honours) will prepare you for an exciting career as an Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP). Accredited Exercise Physiologists are the fastest growing group of allied health professionals in Australia.
AEPs design and deliver exercise interventions that prevent and manage a range of musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, metabolic, neurologic, cancer and mental health conditions. They also provide advanced health and physical activity education, advice and support to help people lead a healthy and active lifestyle. Medicare and most private health insurers recognise and cover services supplied by AEPs.
During your studies, you'll embark on over 600 hours of practical experiences through our on-campus specialised exercise clinical and external industry placements. This experience is designed to develop your clinical skills and optimise your exposure to a wide range of work settings, clientele and practitioners. It can sometimes lead directly to future employment.
Upon graduation, you can gain accreditation with Exercise and Sports Science Australia (ESSA) as both an Accredited Exercise Physiologist and Accredited Exercise Scientist.
