What will I learn?

Gain the theoretical skills to analyse new challenges and the practical skills required to help people improve their health. HPE graduates stand out for their holistic understanding of the concepts of health and physical activity, and their relationship to other components of physical education.

The HPE program is known for the international standard of its facilities. Western Sydney University has invested significantly in practical facilities used for HPE. These are complemented by a wealth of sports venues in the local region, and the opportunity for outdoor activities in the Blue Mountains.

The course explores challenging areas including youth health issues, sexuality, drugs, psychology and risk-taking behaviours, as well as general health science, including human biology, health systems, health promotion and research.

The University has developed an innovative integrated suite of health science programs. The integration between the programs allows some options at the end of the first year for you to transfer between the various streams if you meet the criteria, with advanced standing for the units you have completed. Note that transfer places to some streams may be limited and competitive, and transferring may extend the duration of the degree.
