To apply for a GE assessment you must have completed, or be in the final semester of, a Bachelor degree in exercise and sports science or a related field. There are different pathways for applicants from ESSA-accredited and non-accredited undergraduate exercise science courses. Internationally-qualified graduates should apply via the non-accredited course pathway.
