The UTS difference
There are other high performance sport degrees out there, but at UTS, you’ll study course curriculum that’s underpinned by world-leading sport and exercise science research from UTS and our industry affiliates. All our degrees are characterised by a connection between fundamental science and high-performance sport practice.
Three key themes
The UTS learning experience is defined by an emphasis on three key learning domains:
Translating technical expertise into practice
Successful learning combines theoretical knowledge and practical application. As well as studying the fundamental scientific principles in high-performance sport, you’ll be consistently challenged to translate your theoretical knowledge into meaningful action, considering how the concepts you’re studying in the classroom can be successfully applied in a practical setting to help athletes perform at the highest possible level.
Developing critical thinking
Technical expertise is key to the study and practice of high performance sport, but learning to assess and question the validity of such information is a core component of this course. You’ll be expected to critically appraise contemporary concepts, to challenge conventional wisdom, and to consider the efficacy of alternative viewpoints and methods.
Learning through discovery
University study is a guided experience through highly curated course content, assessments and practical experiences, and our courses are no different. However, as a postgraduate student, you will be expected to engage fully with the concept of self-learning, a critical process that contributes to professional success and lifelong development. To do so, you’ll be expected to explore your own journey of self-discovery as you move through the course, reflect on and identify opportunities for autonomous learning, and actively develop the skills to equip yourself with high-quality, relevant information and evidence to support your decision making at every turn.
