To be considered for postgraduate study, you will need to have specific academic qualifications, as outlined below. We also consider non-academic research and work experience for our research candidates.
Completion of an Australian Bachelor degree (or equivalent) in a similar discipline OR Completion of an Australian Graduate Certificate (or equivalent) in a similar discipline
To check whether your prior study would meet current ESSA Exercise Science standards, please consult the ESSA website (https://www.essa.org.au/Public/APPLY_NOW/Accreditation/Exercise_Science_Accreditation.aspx). Complete a Graduate Entry Assessment (GEA) (https://www.essa.org.au/Public/APPLY_NOW/Graduate_Entry_Assessment.aspx) and include the information that you receive back from ESSA in your application for the AMEP. Typically a GEA is completed by students coming from a non ESSA accredited qualification. If you are not sure if your degree is ESSA accredited or not, you should check with your university, or here at the ESSA website. https://www.essa.org.au/Public/EDUCATION_PROVIDERS/Accredited_Courses.aspx CLINICAL PLACEMENTS Work Integrated Learning (WIL) placement hours are obtained in the units SCL6104 Clinical Exercise Practice and SCL7000 Advanced Case Management and Practice, and total a minimum of 220 hours (as allowed by ESSA under Individual Provisional Accreditation requirements due to COVID). The minimum hours are calculated as: Placements supported (onsite or offsite) - 70% of 220 - 360 hours = 154 - 252 hours Placements supported (onsite) - 30% of 220 – 360 hours = 66 - 108 hours Students may negotiate additional hours beyond the minimum 220 hours, up to a maximum of 360 hours, on a case by case basis. Clinical placement hours are split between SCL6104 and SCL7000. Placement hour requirements must be accrued within 3 months of completing each unit (full-time) or 6 months (part-time); not necessarily in one block or at one institution.
