Australian Catholic University and the School of Behavioural and Health Sciences, Exercise Physiology (EXSC) strongly supports the right of all people to pursue the Masters of Clinical Exercise Physiology and the Graduate Certificate of Rehabilitation for Sporting Injuries.
Inherent requirements are the essential components of a course or unit that demonstrate the abilities, knowledge and skills to achieve the core learning outcomes of the course or unit, while preserving the academic integrity of the University’s learning, assessment and accreditation processes. The inherent requirements are the abilities, knowledge and skills needed to complete the course that must be met by all students.
Students with a disability or chronic health condition may be able to have reasonable adjustments made to enable them to meet these requirements.
The School is committed to making reasonable adjustments to teaching and learning, assessment, professional practice and other activities to enable students to participate in their course. Reasonable adjustments must not fundamentally change the nature of the inherent requirement.
Students are required to undertake compulsory internal and external work placements which reflect the Exercise Physiology context which may include mixed gender, religious and culturally diverse environments. For further information contact your Course Co-ordinator.
The Exercise Physiology degree at ACU meets requirements for graduates to become Accredited members of Exercise and Sport Science Australia. In addition NSW students will be eligible to become accredited with State Insurance Regulatory Authority after completing EXSC611 Occupational Rehabilitation.
To support prospective and current students’ decision making, a series of inherent requirements statements have been developed. These statements specify the essential skills, knowledge and abilities required for the Masters of Clinical Exercise Physiology and the Graduate Certificate of Rehabilitation for Sporting Injuries. Students should use this information to make informed decisions about their chosen course of study. The statements are clustered under 11 domains consisting of ethical behaviour, behavioural stability, legal, communication, cognition, reflective skills, relational skills, sensory ability, strength and mobility, information and communication technologies and sustainable performance.
The inherent requirements outlined below provide a guide to inform decision making for students and staff.
