This course will provide students with an understanding of the effects of acute and chronic exercise on the physiological systems. This will enable students to evaluate, improve and maintain the health and fitness, well-being and performance of an individual. The course will prepare students who want to work as an exercise scientist or clinical exercise physiologists, or who want to advance to further study in sport and exercise.

The course will build upon the knowledge developed from previous courses in human anatomy and physiology and will apply those principles in studying how the physiological systems respond to acute and chronic stressors in sport and exercise. The knowledge obtained will be applied to evaluate, improve and maintain health, fitness and sports performance. Practical and technical skills, and skills in reading, reporting and evaluating research in sport and exercise physiology will be gained.

This course contains a mandatory residential school for external students and mandatory practical classes for on-campus students. To pass this course, students must attend 80% of the residential school or practical classes. Student non-compliance with the attendance requirement will mean the student cannot pass the course.
