Graduate Entry to Exercise Physiology Study 

A Graduate Entry (GE) assessment is available for eligible individuals who are preparing to enrol in an ESSA-accredited postgraduate exercise physiology course. The assessment will confirm whether you have satisfied the exercise science requirements for exercise physiology accreditation.  
To apply for a GE assessment you must have completed, or be in the final semester of, a non-ESSA accredited Bachelor degree in exercise and sports science or a related field.
