Study in the bush, on rivers and in alpine environments with this practical three-year degree. You can major in either outdoor recreation or natural resources education, building your confidence in the outdoors through fieldwork experience in both areas.

The outdoor recreation major emphasises environmental and social responsibility. You'll study leadership and safety in outdoor environments, and gain 160 days of field trip experience. Your electives can include bushwalking, rock climbing, cross-country skiing and paddling, which will develop your knowledge of the Bendigo region, the Victorian Alps, the Grampians and the Murray River system.

The natural resources education major promotes a deep understanding of ecology and the cultural and natural history of the alpine, woodland, coastal and river environments of south-eastern Australia. This major offers 50 days of field trip experience.

The qualification awarded on graduation is recognised in the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) as Level 7.

Advanced Standing - Credit for prior study

Advanced Standing is the recognition of previous study or learning that can be counted towards a qualification. This can reduce the number of subjects required to complete your course. The amount of credit received depends on the level and relevance of your previous tertiary study and the number of subjects completed. The University will designate courses where there is only admission into Year 1 of the course. In these cases, there is limited advanced standing. More information
