Welcome to the School of Psychology and Exercise Science
The School of Psychology and Exercise Science prepares students for careers in the mental and physical health sectors. We offer a range of accredited undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Psychology, Exercise Physiology and Sports Science. The School places great importance in looking at the social and cultural context in which psychology is studied. We are active in research, with well-established programs of research in cognitive, developmental, physiological, clinical, organisational and social aspects of psychology.
The School also has a vision to be recognised as the leading sports science institution for academic, clinical and research excellence.To help achieve this, in 2011 we completed a new $4 million, 900sqm sports science facility, which contains labs for biomechanics, exercise physiology, conditioning and rehabilitation. The facility also houses a performance lab complete with a 50m running track, a 14m by 4m screen for projecting life-size simulations and biomechanical imaging, plus a thermal chamber that can raise the temperature to above 55 degrees Celsius.
