Deakin University offers admission to postgraduate courses through a number of Admission categories.
In all categories of admission, selection is based primarily on academic merit as indicated by an applicant's previous academic record. The minimum requirements are successful completion of a three-year undergraduate degree, or equivalent, from an approved university or other educational institution or successful completion of other equivalent qualifications gained by examination, or approved professional or industrial experience. International students must also meet the postgraduate English language requirements.
Students are advised to aim for at least a Weighted Average Mark (WAM) of 65% or greater; however achieving 65% or greater WAM does not provide guaranteed entry into the course.
For more information on the Admission Criteria and Selection Policy visit The Guide.
To be considered for selection into the course, applicants must be eligible for FULL membership of ESSA (a necessary pre-requisite for AEP accreditation) and have completed 140 hours of exercise service delivery for apparently healthy clientele. The pathways for admittance into the Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology (H743) are:
- Graduates of the Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science (H343) at Deakin University after 2010: this course is accredited at the Exercise Science level by ESSA and is designed to provide direct entry into the Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology (H743);
- Applicants who have previously completed an ESSA accredited undergraduate degree in Exercise Science at another university: go to ESSA to see the list of accredited universities;
- Graduates of undergraduate degrees other than those above who can demonstrate that they have covered all or most of the elements required for Accredited Exercise Scientist or full membership of ESSA; most undergraduate degrees in Exercise and Sports Science will cover this criterion; go to ESSA to download the Graduate entry assessment form and guide from ESSA
- Current or past full member of ESSA. Please provide your membership evidence with your application.
For all four categories, applicants must have also completed 140 hours of exercise service delivery for apparently healthy clientele as this is required for AEP accreditation and is not provided within the Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology (H743). Applicants must submit this log book with their application.
