Health and Physical Education

Find out about the Health and Physical Education courses on offer at Monash in this hands-on workshop.

You'll discover how the body responds to exercise and gain some unique insights into training and nutrition. You'll conduct a submaximal fitness test using the same test bicycles Olympians work with, and record power output and responses to exercise including heart rate, respiration and perceived effort.

You'll then interpret this data to better understand how the body's cardiovascular and respirator systems respond and adapt to exercise.

Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences

VCE is an important time – all the more reason to remain healthy. Diet, exercise and sleep all play an important role in keeping you alert and ready to learn!

This workshop will show you how to maintain a balance between study and looking after yourself.

To help you perform at your every best, you'll learn about the importance of nutrition during exam times, as well as how to meet your exercise and sleep needs throughout VCE.
