Description Experience in the field of study is an essential ingredient in marketing an individual for employment and often for professional memberships. Professional Practice provides students with an opportunity to observe and assist Sport & Exercise Science practitioners in action and to learn in a practical hands on setting. Students will have the opportunity to see how knowledge and skills acquired in lectures and tutorials/laboratories can be applied and also relate theoretical concepts and skills to situations in exercise-related settings. This unit is the first of two units which require a work placement which is usually off campus.
