About this subject

    1. Explain the scientific rationale, purpose, reliability, validity, assumptions, and limitations of common exercise. 
    2. Identify and explain the common processes and equipment required to conduct accurate exercise. 
    3. Interpret, explain and analyse physiological data obtained during acute exercise, and compare such data between time-points, individuals and populations. 
    4. Interpret information from assessments and convey the result, including the accuracy and limitations of the assessments, through written communication. 
    5. Apply knowledge of the physiological responses to acute exercise and the adaptations to chronic exercise to provide a rationale for the provision of exercise programs to improve and maintain specific aspects of health, fitness and performance.

Single subject FAQs

What’s a single subject?

Single subjects are the individual components that make up a degree. With Open Universities Australia, you’re able to study many of them as stand-alone subjects, including postgraduate single subjects, without having to commit to a degree.

Each of your subjects will be held over the course of a study term, and they’ll usually require 10 to 12 hours of study each week. Subjects are identified by a title and a code, for example, Developmental Psychology, PSY20007.

How can I use single subjects to get into a full degree?

First, find the degree that you would like to study on our website.

If that degree allows entry via undergraduate subjects, there will be information about this under the Entry Requirements section. You will find a list of 2-4 open enrolment subjects you need to successfully complete to qualify for admission into that qualification.

Once you pass those subjects, you will satisfy the academic requirements for the degree, and you can apply for entry.

Our student advisors are here to help you take that next step, so don’t hesitate to reach out when you’re ready! We’ve also made it easier to figure out the right way to get started on our pathways page.
