UTS: Health is delighted to announce UTS and the Sydney Cricket and Sports Grounds Trust (SGCT) have partnered to create the sport and exercise specific Moore Park precinct, providing significant benefits to Sport and Exercise Science and Management students.
Sport and Exercise Science and Management students will attend classes at both UTS Moore Park precinct and UTS City campus, keeping you engaged and connected to our main campus.
This partnership provides great benefits for students:
- classes at the Moore Park precinct will provide a wonderful opportunity to engage your learning in this exciting and vibrant sports environment.
- students will be in close proximity to the elite sports already based at Moore Park, including cricket, rugby league, rugby union, Australian rules and football.
- students will be part of a first for Australia - integrating an academic precinct within world class sporting facilities.
Sport and Exercise courses and research activities will transition to the Sydney Cricket Ground and Allianz Stadium precinct from 2016 using existing facilities, with new purpose-built facilities due to open in 2018.
The new purpose-built facilities for sport and exercise science and management students, and related research activities, will be located inside the new Australian Rugby Development Centre (ARDC) at Moore Park.
These facilities include a range of purpose-built laboratories as well as high-performance training facilities for the ARU.
The Moore Park precinct is located at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) and Allianz Stadium.
