Why study the Bachelor of Clinical Exercise Physiology (Honours)?

The Bachelor of Clinical Exercise Physiology (Honours) degree will prepare you for an exciting career as an Accredited Exercise Physiologist (including Accredited Exercise Scientist). Accredited Exercise Physiologists are recognised allied health professionals who design and deliver exercise interventions for the prevention and management of a range of musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, metabolic, neurologic, cancer and mental health conditions. They can also provide advanced health and physical activity education, advice and support to promote a healthy and active lifestyle. Medicare and many private health insurers recognise and cover services supplied by accredited exercise physiologists.

The UQ Bachelor of Clinical Exercise Physiology (Honours) degree is the only undergraduate clinical exercise physiology program in Australia where you will graduate with a highly respected Honours qualification.

What you can study

During this program you will learn how to deliver exercise-based lifestyle and behavioural programs for people at high-risk of developing, or with existing, chronic and complex medical conditions and injuries such as musculoskeletal conditions, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and depression. You will be involved in a variety of ongoing practicum experiences with 'apparently healthy' clientele and high-risk, 'chronic and complex medical condition' clientele.
