Study in Sydney

Sydney is one of the world’s great cities. A bustling metropolis with world-famous attractions like the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Sydney Opera House and Bondi beach.

A nature lover’s paradise, with masses of wildlife in the city itself, plus seven national parks on our doorstep and dozens more just a hop, skip and a jump away.

Then take your pick of cuisine from our melting pot of cultures and be spoiled for choice in our world-class arts and culture scene.

And it’s a dream place to live, with an incredible climate and wonderful lifestyle.

What’s Sydney in a word? Iconic.

It’s also a great place to study a physical education or sport degree. You may be asking, why is Sydney well-known for study? Sydney is not just Australia’s biggest city, it’s also a global higher education hub, home to some of the world’s best higher education providers in the world.

And that includes ACPE!


ACPE has been around since 1917 – over a hundred years! – so we know a thing or two about teaching the next generation of experts in physical education and sport.

ACPE’s Education Hub is a modern campus with state-of-the-art athlete facilities located at Sydney Olympic Park, 14km from the CBD and a heap of public transport on our doorstep.

Not only that, ACPE is the highest ranked higher education provider for teaching quality in sport, dance and education degrees in Australia, with a staggering 94.4% student rating in the Australian Government’s annual student experience survey!

We’re so proud of our outstanding results, but we know that these results are because we invest in our students, our teaching staff and our facilities.

As an ACPE student, you’re not a number, you’re part of the ACPE family. We’re a college where everyone knows your name, where you make lasting friendships and a place you feel like you belong.

Every class has a low student-to-lecturer ratio, ensuring you get the personal attention and access you need to learn at your very best. Your lecturers are qualified experts with industry experience and an understanding of what it takes to help you succeed.

Study Physical Education in Sydney

As the top-rated higher education provider in the country for teaching quality in sport, health and dance degrees, ACPE should be your first choice to study physical education in Australia.

All our courses offer a mix of theoretical learning, practical hands-on training, and industry access and engagement, because we know getting the most out of your degree means more than sitting in a classroom or lecture theatre.

ACPE believes in learning by doing, allowing you to create a sound theoretical base along with the practical knowledge and application you need to make a smooth transition from your studies to work.

The reason ACPE students love their courses is because we know that your career doesn’t start after graduation – it starts as soon as you become an ACPE student. From day one, we start getting you job-ready.

Our courses are designed to equip you with a range of transferable skills and experiences that will make you attractive to future employers. It’s so much more than a degree.

Our Career Development Service team helps you assess your personal strengths, develop a career path, and leverage the opportunities available to you. We’ll also help you develop the skills employers are looking for in your desired field before graduation.

We provide ample opportunities to engage directly with the sport industry. We know how critical it is to build your network before you graduate, so we offer unrivalled industry exposure through our partnership with industry leaders like the Liverpool Football Club (LFC) International Academy.

Through our industry partnerships, our students not only graduate with a degree from ACPE, you can also obtain other accreditations, such as LFC coaching accreditation, as well as excellent employment opportunities after graduation.

Why should ACPE be the first choice for international students?

ACPE has a large cohort of international students who have chosen to study with us not only for the quality of teaching, industry exposure and graduate employment opportunities, but also because of the care and commitment we give to our international students.

We know that moving to another country, studying in a foreign language and making friends and colleagues can not only be daunting, it can be a challenge. That’s why we ensure all our international students feel supported, so you have the best experience in our country, in our city and in our college, and you graduate ready to launch your dream sport career.
