Meet our Achievers from the Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Science

Tim Knight, UON Exercise and Sport Science graduate is now Head of Sport Science for the Central Coast Mariners A-League Football Club. Watch his story here:

"The best thing about the exercise and sport science degree is that it provides a huge number of career opportunities. Also, what we learn is something that can be applied to ourselves and can improve our own quality of life through putting into practice what we learn in class" - Shelley.

"Sport science has a very large practical component and this includes a semester (minimum) of work placement. The practical components were both extremely fun and educational, giving you experience that could be used in the outside world. I had the chance to work with major sporting teams such as the Newcastle Knights and the Central Coast Mariners" - William.

"The work placement component offered us positions we had only ever dreamed of, taking us places, gaining practical experience, and overall concept of working in the industry, employment opportunities and a good time" - Samantha.
