eta has developed a unique approach to teaching and learning called Total Immersion. It consists of a well-researched combination of theory, practical learning and application in authentic sport, recreation and fitness activities. An additional benefit of total immersion is that you improve your own fitness while learning with eta.
eta has been enabling students to enter higher education since 1983. Our graduates qualify as fitness practitioners, sport coaches or sport managers.
