Course sub-headings

Course overview

The Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Science/Bachelor of Business (Sport Management) is designed for students who wish to gain a broad understanding of sport through learning about both the business and management of sporting organisations and as well as the science behind elite performance and participation in sport.

The Bachelor of Business (Sport Management) core degree provides you with a strong foundation in the management of organisations with a sport focus, and the logistics, business and administration of sporting competitions, major events and sport participation programs. You will gain unique knowledge and skills in management of organisations that support sports and events within disciplines such as marketing, finance, promotion, athlete management, sponsorship and equipment/merchandising.

The Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Science is nationally recognised and the field-leading degree of its type in Victoria, where a major focus of your learning is to improve performance, health and participation of individuals, athletes and teams through training, coaching and advice. You will develop the expertise to become a professional leader in exercise and sport science while studying the biology, technology, behaviour and best practices that underpin exercise and sport science.

Graduates of this double degree will be equipped to provide enhanced professional leadership in the field and the ability to make a significant contribution to the continued development of the Australian sporting industry.

Fees and charges

Fee paying place - International
A fee paying place is one for which the University does not receive any Government funding. As such, students enrolled in these places are required to contribute the full cost of their course.

Fees for international students apply to persons living in Australia with Temporary Resident status, provided that there is no limitation on study and persons living abroad who are not Australian citizens and do not have Permanent Resident status in Australia.

The actual course fee charged by Deakin University, is based on the course and the study load being undertaken. The annual fee above is based on eight credit points (which equals one Equivalent Full Time Study Load - EFTSL). If your study load for the year is less than or more than eight credit points, your fees will be adjusted accordingly. To calculate the fee for each unit, take the applicable course fee above, divide it by eight, then multiply it by the credit point of the unit you are studying. To find the credit point and EFTSL value of each unit, go to the Handbook Unit Search.

This 'Fee paying annual fee' is provided as a guide only. The actual course fee charged by Deakin University, is based on the course and the study load (EFTSL) being undertaken.

The fees per course/unit/credit point may be otherwise subject to an annual increase due to rises in the cost of course delivery and service.
