A healthy sense of proportion is a key element of our educational offer. At ACPE, students are encouraged to balance a rigorous approach to academic work with substantial participation in sporting and social activity
Our degree programs are designed with this sense of equilibrium in mind, and the college’s teaching and administrative staff reflect this philosophy in their day-to-day interactions with students.
University and social sport
At ACPE, college-based sport is integral to the student experience. For that reason the college publishes a monthly social sport calendar to advertise events such as the ACPE Soccer World Cup, basketball games, and weekly yoga and fitness classes to name a few. Australian University Sport allows students around Australia to take part in competitive sport at regional, national, and international levels. For example, ACPE students compete in the Eastern University Games, Australian University Games, and Australian University Championship events. Students may even be eligible to qualify for the World University Games or other championships. Student Services makes the arrangements necessary to facilitate participation.
There’s a lot going on at ACPE besides study! Getting involved in the social life of the college is a great way to meet others and have fun. In addition to O-Week activities, students participate in fundraising events, university games, student barbecues, harbour cruises, the annual sports awards function, welcome parties for new students, and much more.
