Sports and Exercise Nutrition

Nutrition fuels athletic performance and is a key component in achieving sporting success.

Whether you’re working with a school sports team, community club or all the way through to elite athletes, it’s important to have access to the latest sports and exercise nutrition recommendations, backed by rigorous academic research.

Until now, there has been a lack of University-led, online courses in the area of sport and exercise nutrition, aimed at those working in the broad areas of sport, exercise and physical activity for professional development.

The Undergraduate Certificate in Sports and Exercise Nutrition provides you with the latest scientific knowledge to support a range of sport and exercise activities. This course is based on our world-leading research and evidence-based practice, which has underpinned both national and international guidelines and recommendations for athletes.

Our teachers are accredited sports dietitians, recognised globally for their pioneering research in sports dietetics, exercise gastroenterology and extremes physiology.  You’ll benefit from their wealth of clinical and industry experience, expand your understanding of sport and exercise nutrition, and be able to apply your new knowledge within your own practice.

″I look forward to guiding you through your sports and exercise nutrition educational journey”. Dr Ricardo Costa PhD, RD, APD, AdvSD Course coordinator and Senior Lecturer in Exercise Physiology, Metabolism and Dietetics.

Mental Health

Now is the time to change how we think about and respond to mental health.

In the last 12 months, we’ve experienced the devastation of the Black Summer bushfires, the global COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent recession. The Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System has provided a unique, once-in-a-generation opportunity to transform our mental health system and improve the mental health and wellbeing of all Victorians.

More than ever, we need a skilled and empathetic workforce who truly understands mental health. Our Undergraduate Certificate in Mental Health develops your knowledge and skills in responding to mental health needs - from understanding mental illnesses, to different perspectives in mental health services, through to strategies for treatment and recovery.

Whether you’re looking to start your career in mental health, update your expertise or expand your skill set, this course will equip you to help meet the diverse mental health needs of our community.
