    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.

    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.
