    I loved the flexibility of this course; the online subjects allowed students to continue with their paid work, internships or extracurricular activities. Our lecturers were also super fun and encouraging. They made it clear they were there to support us, and they understood that we also had a life beyond the classroom.

    The course was very flexible, and the curriculum and teaching styles offered by the lecturers aligned with my passion for optimising health outcomes. This degree has given me the knowledge and confidence to work as the sole Exercise Physiologist in a rural/remote multidisciplinary practice.

The hands-on experience and knowledge gained from the course content and on-campus residentials gave me the skills and confidence to excel during my placements which, in turn, created employment opportunities.
