From our High-Performance Sports program to UniSC Para Sport, the University of the Sunshine Coast houses world-class facilities that make us the ideal home for a multi-sport community of athletes, and creates exciting opportunities for teaching, research and external engagement.
Bringing together athletes, coaches, teams, sports organisations and the wider community, UniSC’s sport and exercise science is an inclusive program where partnerships are enriched, built upon a shared love of sport and a firm belief in the power of equal opportunity.
We’re also proud to be the Queensland university leading the way in advancing Paralympic Sport. Accessibility is a key design element of our infrastructure at UniSC, so we have the optimal training environment for athletes of all abilities.
Daily training sessions in our sport precincts are not just of benefit to athletes, they are also opportunities for UniSC researchers and research candidates to collect consistent data that can in turn help improve training practices. It’s like having an evidence-based research laboratory on our doorstep.
UniSC students seeking careers in occupational therapy and sport sciences have the advantage of gaining invaluable real-life experience working with people and athletes of all abilities who are training on site.
The University of the Sunshine Coast has a rich history of working alongside major sport stakeholders to create opportunities for athletes, sports teams, and researchers/students in sport sciences. UniSC Para Sport opens even wider possibilities for new and existing partners who have a specific interest in Para sport to network, share knowledge and collaborate.
