The Bachelor of Exercise Science provides a strong knowledge base for students interested in ‘exercise as the new medicine’, providing pathways into further study to become a Doctor, Physiotherapist or Exercise Physiologist. The Bachelor of Exercise Science is the preferred pathway for entry into Bond’s Doctor of Physiotherapy (DPT)*, a two year full-time course. Graduates will also be well placed to gain employment as cardiac technologists, sleep technicians, respiratory technicians, trainee sonographers and pharmaceutical representatives.
COMBINED DEGREES / FURTHER STUDY
