Sport and exercise science focuses on improving sports performance, based on anatomy, biomechanics, nutrition and physiology, fitness assessment and exercise prescription. AUT is New Zealand's top ranked university for sport and exercise science research, and our graduates go on to a range of exciting careers. The Sport and Exercise Science major is supported by the Sports Performance Research Institute New Zealand (SPRINZ) based at AUT Millennium.

Our range of sport and exercise science papers provides theoretical and practical learning experiences in the areas of human movement, exercise physiology, strength and conditioning and personal fitness. To complement our papers, AUT has strong links with the high-performance sport and fitness industries, which provide excellent opportunities for real world student learning experiences and exposure to experts in the field. Our success is partly due to the Sports Performance Research Institute New Zealand (SPRINZ), which is a multi-disciplinary research team that conducts high impact research related to applied physical performance. SPRINZ has close links with High Performance Sport New Zealand and also works with a number of national sports organisations and health providers.
