School of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences

Reasons to take the Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology (MCEP)

  • The MCEP has received full external accreditation under the National University Course Accreditation Program (NUCAP) scheme, administered by Exercise & Sports Science Australia (ESSA). This enables our first graduates to graduate from an AEP accredited program. MCEP will be the first and currently the only accredited AEP program in Victoria. External accreditation is made all the more important in that from 1 January 2014, it will be only graduates from accredited AEP courses who will be eligible for AEP accreditation and access to Medicare Provider Numbers.

  • The MCEP course has a simple pathway to accreditation as an Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP) and access to Provider Numbers with Medicare Australia, WorkSafe Victoria, DVA, TAC, and many other compensable funds and schemes.

  • All students enrol as Commonwealth-Supported Places (CSP), making the course fees amongst the lowest in Australia. The course is 18 months full-time.

  • The teaching team has expertise across all of the pathology areas needed for clinical exercise practice and AEP accreditation.

  • The clinical practicum program covers all of the requirements for AEP accreditation and features the award winning Clinical Exercise Learning Centre at the Burwood campus, where students develop their practice skills under close supervision and mentoring. All placements are arranged by Deakin University.
