Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology, Deakin University

If you're seriously considering pursuing a postgraduate degree in exercise physiology, you might want to to look at the Master of Clinical Exercise physiology offered by Deakin University in Victoria.

Deakin University seems to be a reputable university and so is the first to have this course accredited by exercise physiologists in Australia.

Deakin’s Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology is the first clinical exercise course in Victoria to get accredited by Exercise and Sports Science Australia (ESSA).
The course provides graduates with a simple pathway to accreditation as Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEP) and access to Provider Numbers with Medicare Australia, WorkSafe Victoria, DVA, TAC, and other compensable funds and schemes.

Course duration  2 years
Course fees  $30,080

To be considered for selection into the course, applicants must be eligible for FULL membership of ESSA (a necessary pre-requisite for AEP accreditation) and have completed 140 hours of exercise service delivery for apparently healthy clientele.

The pathways for admittance into the Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology (H743) are:

1. Graduates of the Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science (H343) at Deakin University after 2010: this course is accredited at the Exercise Science level by ESSA and is designed to provide direct entry into the Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology (H743);

2. Applicants who have previously completed an ESSA accredited undergraduate degree in Exercise Science at another university: go to ESSA to see the list of accredited universities;

3. Graduates of undergraduate degrees other than those above who can demonstrate that they have covered all or most of the elements required for full membership of ESSA; most undergraduate degrees in Exercise and Sports Science will cover this criterion; go to ESSA to download the Graduate entry application form and guide from ESSA

4. Current or past full member of ESSA.
For all four categories, applicants must have also completed 140 hours of exercise service delivery for apparently healthy clientele as this is required for AEP accreditation and is not provided within the Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology (H743).

International students who have an IELTS score of 7 across all bands may apply for entry into the course providing they have met the prerequisites for entry.
