Exercise and Sport Science in Australia!

Institution

Since 1987, International Studies Abroad (ISA) has provided college students in the United States and Canada the opportunity to explore the world.  A primary objective of all ISA programs is to facilitate the learning and development of students. We rely on host universities to provide quality instruction in the classroom, but ISA is the main facilitator of learning outside of the classroom.    

Locations

ISA Canberra summer students participate in a unique 3 week traveling program allowing for the opportunity to explore aspects of Australia's sporting industry from both a professional and recreational perspective. This program provides students with the opportunity to observe and participate in activities that combine both theoretical and practical knowledge of Australian sport. Students will gain coaching advice, increase their marketing skills by marketing sports the Australian way, along with gaining an insight on nutrition, sports research, psychology, and human movement and fitness. The program is conducted by the University of Canberra and taught in English by host university professors.
