Featuring an alumni of a number of NSWIS athletes past and present, as well as NSW Minister for Sport Stuart Ayres, the Australian College of Physical Education (ACPE) is an important Education Provider for the NSW Institute of Sport, assisting us in furthering athletes’ dual career.
Swimmer Kurt Herzog is an NSWIS Scholarship Holder and current student at ACPE.
“I was looking for something that was going to be flexible around my travel and around my training” said Herzog.
“I really didn’t want to fall behind on my studies. I heard that ACPE offered online courses, and I heard that they’re really flexible and supportive of elite athletes.
“Because I train just down the road at Homebush it works out super well for me. If I’m overseas I can study online, if I’m here I can go into class.”
ACPE will be holding an Open Day at their Sydney Olympic Park campus next Saturday 14th October, with parents and friends of prospectus students welcome to attend. The Open Day will give attendees the opportunity to:
- Talk with academic and student support staff and learn all about their industry-focused courses
- Find out exactly where a qualification from ACPE can take you and how you can succeed in an active industry
- Take a tour of their state-of-the-art, purpose built campus at Sydney Olympic Park
- Discuss course and study options with Enrolment Advisors
