    Bachelor of Sport and Exercise Science

    What I like about JCU is that it has small class sizes so you get to know your lecturers. The lecturers really help you and give you great opportunities in the field that help further your career, such as internships, volunteering, and participating in research.

    Bachelor of Sport and Exercise Science

    During my time at JCU we covered interesting subtopics in sport and exercise science, including biomechanics, motor learning, sport psychology, and strength and conditioning. All lecturers and tutors are passionate about their field which provided motivation and encouragement and helped me expand on my own interests.

    It’s been good having JCU graduates as they bring skills that are up to date with the current information in the industry. In this industry, having staff who are JCU graduates is an extra qualification a lot of personal trainers don’t have. So I’ve gone out of my way to look for people with those qualifications.
