We are an interdisciplinary school delivering progressive, real-world courses and cutting-edge research in nutrition and dietetics, nutrition science, clinical exercise physiology, and sport and exercise science.

State-of-the-art facilities provide a dynamic learning environment for students who gain practical experiences delivering exercise physiology and nutrition services to clients through QUT‘s purpose-built Health Clinics. The Clinics provide contemporary, interdisciplinary healthcare for local communities and families. Our students gain valuable experience in community settings, both locally and internationally, through diverse placements and learning opportunities.

The School produces cutting-edge research that makes significant advancements for nutrition, sports and physical health. Our partnerships with professional groups, industry and communities, such as the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital and the Children's Hospital Foundation, ensure that our research discoveries are shared for the benefit of all.
