This degree programme is offered by AUT at the Nelson Campus and is available to graduates of the Diploma in Applied Fitness and the new New Zealand Diplomas in Sport, Recreation and Exercise.
|If you achieved University Entrance (UE) in 2020, the entry requirements for this programme may differ from those displayed on this page and in printed material due to the disruption caused by COVID-19. To find out about entry requirements for those who achieve UE in 2020 see the NZQA website(external link).
After completing the NZ Diploma in Sport Recreation and Exercise (Level 5 and 6) graduates are able to transfer into the BSR programme.
The courses that make up this programme are all relevant and applied so you are constantly learning information you can apply to your work on graduation. The degree does not contain specialisation, however in your third year you will complete a big project that reflects the area of sports and recreation you are interested in. Class sizes are small providing more contact with your tutors than at larger institutions and you will make good friends with your class mates.
Please visit the AUT website(external link) to learn more about this Bachelor of Sport and Recreation.
The Government COVID-19 Public Health Response (Vaccinations) Order 2021(external link) has been extended to include high-risk workers in the hospitality and service industries such as hair, beauty and fitness sector.
This has implications for our learners and staff who have close contact, customer facing, roles in the teaching and learning environment, and learner work placements.
The effect of this is that vaccination will soon be mandatory.
With the introduction of the Order, NMIT cannot secure placements for learners who are not vaccinated. If your vaccination status cannot be confirmed it is likely you will not be able to complete your qualification.
