Study Nutrition and Exercise on Demand with UniSA Online


[Music] UniSA Online is introducing the Bachelor of Health Science (Nutrition and Exercise) degree, and this is bringing together two key areas in preventative health to ensure the health of all Australians in the future. So, students that undertake this degree will be able to develop foundational skills and knowledge which will assist them in their current careers that they may be in, or they may be choosing to go into a new area. Students will be able to study completely online in their own space, in their own environment that they’re comfortable with. It’s collecting the best of both degrees and putting them into this online degree. This degree will be offering students knowledge and core principles in three key areas – nutrition, exercise and health promotion. Students will be learning what are the essential nutritional and exercise requirements for different age groups. So, if you look at adolescents compared to the elderly, those requirements are very different. And then the other key important area is the health promotion. So, how do you deliver the message, how do you talk to people about incorporating good nutritional practices and exercise into their daily lives. The reality is everybody is interested in their health and we know that by improving both nutrition and exercise we can reduce 50% of chronic diseases. As well as all the teaching material and resources and references, we’ve also got a couple of really snazzy computer software programs that students will have made available to them. And these are software programs that professionals are using in the industry so they’ll graduate with skills in being able to use these and be career ready. Students are not alone. They’re not going through this online learning journey by themselves. They’re going through it with their Online Course Facilitator, their tutors who will be available to them, and most importantly with their peers. This is important because not only does it support your ideas and key concepts about the material, but it also develops those really important networks that students will need once they graduate because the students you’re studying with at the moment, are the people you’ll be working with in the future. Our graduates will have a dual skill set, which up to now there hasn’t been a degree which has combined both nutrition and exercise. Students are really delving into the types of projects, the type of skills they’ll really need when they enter a career in health. We know that this degree will set up students with those core skills and passion to work in this area in the future. [Music] [Music]
