Australian College of Physical Education

Australian College of Physical Education ACPE offers Bachelor degrees in Sport, Fitness, Health Science, Community Health, Dance and Physical Education.


At the Australian College of Physical Education (ACPE) we are driven by one purpose – to help students who are passionate about Sport, Health, Fitness, Dance and Education to become confident and competent professionals who follow their passion every day.

At ACPE we do things differently to most universities.  Our students realise their full potential through a personalised learning environment, small class sizes and extensive additional learning and career support.  In the last 102 years we have had the privilege of helping many students become qualified in their field of choice. Our graduates enter the workforce career ready because our courses are closely aligned with industry needs.  ACPE has a 92.8% graduate employment rate which exceeds the national average.  The result of our approach is that students are able to adjust to the demands of higher education and are prepared for a career of their choice. We pride ourselves on being able to deliver our programs to a high standard for two reasons; our lecturers are experienced industry experts and we have low student-to-teacher ratios. So you will have abundant access to academics, student services and support staff.

ACPE courses are delivered at its purpose-built campus in Sydney Olympic Park which was home to the 2000 Olympic games. Students have access to world class state-of-the art facilities and organisations.
