Choosing the right university is one of the most important decisions a student can make, and especially for students looking to go overseas, it can also be one of the biggest investments. Studying at the university level is that next step, a time to explore, focus and seriously prepare for a rewarding career.
Students and families know this is not a decision that should be made lightly. An institution’s reputation needs to be carefully considered, as well as location, facilities, research excellence, and student satisfaction. And of highest importance is whether the degree will help you achieve your goals. Deakin University in Australia offers all of this and more. Deakin has a strong global reputation, being ranked in the top 2% of all universities worldwide and ranked as one of the top 50 young universities in the world.

You might work in local, state or national sporting organisations and professional sporting clubs; state and national institutes of sport; as well as health, fitness and exercise physiology rehabilitation providers.
The students speak for themselves: Oliver Townsend, who is studying a Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Science at Deakin, says ’My course incorporates practical assessments that are done hands-on in an actual working laboratory setting which I very much enjoy, especially when we are able to use technical equipment in order to measure subject values on real life patients’.
As well as traditional roles, you may pursue employment in sports administration, facility management, community health and wellness, rehabilitation, and sport science after completing Deakin’s exercise and sport science programs. Other employment opportunities include local and state government agencies, professional sporting bodies, hospital and rehabilitation clinics, fitness and aquatic centres, private health and recreation centres, or large business organisations. The degree is also a common pathway to postgraduate study.
