Are you interested in extending your knowledge in sport and exercise science? This one year programme is designed for you to build on your undergraduate degree or equivalent industry experience with further specialist knowledge.
There is a growing demand for quality Strength and Conditioners from the Waikato regions sport performance community so we have developed a Postgraduate module in Strength and Conditioning. Read about women in strength and conditioning on our blog here.
Our postgraduate sports programmes focus on applied learning, are strongly industry-focused, and supported by a team of highly-skilled academic staff. Plus, you'll get to apply your learning in our purpose-built facilities.
Extend your knowledge in 2018 with The Centre for Sport Science & Human Performance’s Postgraduate Scholarship, now open for applications.
The scholarship is availble to students enrolling in a Postgraduate programme at the Centre for Sport Science and Human Performance.
We'd love to have you take up this fantastic scholarship opportunity and join us in February! Find out more about the scholarship here.
You can tailor your study towards your specialty areas or where your interest lies.
Each candidate’s programme will comprise four modules from the list below.
Candidates who intend to seek entry to the Master of Science (Sport and Exercise Science) programmes, should include the modules SPPG001 and SPPG011 in their programme of study for the Postgraduate Diploma. Successful completion of these two modules, and two other modules from the list, with an average grade of B or better, will enable candidates to apply for entry to the Master of Science (Sport and Exercise Science) programmes.
Candidates may include in their programme, in place of one of the modules listed in section 6 of these regulations, an advanced vocational elective module or modules totalling a minimum of 30 credits, which must be at Level 7 or above, from any programme at the Waikato Institute of Technology or another tertiary institution, subject to the following restrictions:
a) The elective modules must be approved by the Team Manager as appropriate for the programme and to the candidate’s intended career.
b) The candidate must have fulfilled any pre-requisite requirements of the elective module or modules.
c) Where an elective module is at Level 7, candidates will complete extra work under supervision, as approved by the Team Manager, to make the module equivalent to a Level 8 module.
Note: no value in the pre/co-requisite columns means there are no pre/co-requisites for that module

Do you excel in your job but have no qualification to back it up? We can help you get qualified through our Recognition of Prior (RPL) Learning Tool.
While many people have gained work and life experience equivalent to that of formal study, they don't have that formal qualification to substantiate it. RPL allows you to use your current knowledge and experience towards gaining a recognised qualification through Informal Transfer of Credit.
If you are interested in applying, you can do so by emailing your profile through to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your profile will be forwarded to the relevant Team Manager to look at and determine if you may be eligible for recognition of prior learning. Once this has been determined, a consultation meeting will be arranged between yourself and the Team Manager. There is a $75 fee for this consultation. At the consultation, the Team Manager will discuss which modules they believe you have the experience to gain Informal Transfer of Credit for and also what documentation you will need to supply.
Our prospectuses will tell you everything you need to know about Wintec. They contains information about the Wintec campus, student life and the programmes we offer.
We offer the prospectuses in both digital and physical form.
