Student review
I consider this bachelor degree as one of the most complete when compared to other Universities in Queensland. The practical component is aligned with the most recent scientific studies in exercise, performance and body adaptations to physical activity. I could not be more happy of the decision I made to travel to Australia to study at Griffith University
