A Graduate Entry assessment is available to individuals who have completed or are enrolled in the final semester of a Bachelor degree in/or related to the field of exercise and sports science, AND are applying to undertake an ESSA accredited post graduate study in the near future* in order to become an AEP.
The Graduate Entry assessment is not an accreditation, it is purely an assessment of the Exercise Science Standards and practicum against your prior study. On completion of the assessment, you will be provided with an outcome letter
which will outline the elements you have 'Met' or 'Not Yet Met'. This letter can be provided to the university you’re applying to for post graduate study.
Exercise Science is the base to Exercise Physiology, therefore, when applying to ESSA to become an Accredited Exercise Physiologist, you must meet both the current Exercise Science and Exercise Physiology Standards.
*Please Note: The resulting Graduate Entry letter is only valid for limited period of time. You must be enrolled in the postgraduate study prior to the expiration date of the letter.
There are two types of application forms depending on the study undertaken:
