The Bachelor of Sport, Health and Physical Activity is flexible, practical and provides you with the knowledge and skills in a range of different areas within the sports industry. There is a lot of scope within the degree to choose your career path and align the practical experiences you’ll have during your studies with that career path. The role I hold today at the SANFL came to fruition through the connections I made during my placement.
The Bachelor of Sport, Health and Physical Activity provides a broad academic pathway that can lead to opportunities from health through to business management. I initially wanted to learn about the human body and I knew I wanted a career in promotion of physical activity, although little did I know the degree would push me to pursue the business aspects of sport. Since graduating I have worked in the not for profit sector as a Sport Development Administrator, working with a range of athletes from novice to elite.
