Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
The Diploma in Exercise Science provides an important stepping-stone for students to achieve their career and study goals in Exercise Science. It is an ideal pathway for international students who do not meet the direct entry requirements of an undergraduate degree at ACU or are seeking a supportive introduction to university study in Australia. The Diploma in Exercise Science is an alternative pathway into the Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science at ACU. It provides students with a broad understanding of key concepts, incorporating units (subjects) from the Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science course to ensure students develop the foundation-level knowledge, understanding, skills and attributes applicable to further study in the discipline area. Students also complete a dedicated Academic Literacy unit to learn the English language, academic competencies and literacy skills for tertiary study. They are supported from start to finish, with smaller class sizes, tailored support and a range of student services to help them succeed. Students who successfully complete the Diploma in Exercise Science graduate with a standalone qualification, plus gain credit for the first year of undergraduate study. This enables students to transition directly into the second year of the Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science at ACU.
