每天多學一點，改變 • 可大可小。你準備就緒了嗎？
My experience at HKU SPACE was extremely beneficial to my planned career. As the founder of a sports association (International Capoeira Society Treasurer - Ballet Edification Society of Hong Kong), this course was geared quite closely in line with my objectives for taking the course.
The course was delivered in English which was good for me even though the majority of my classmates were local Hong Kongers.
Assessments were challenging but also interesting which helped give me the motivation to get deep into most of the topics to improve myself. Lecturers are very helpful and easily approachable with a vast amount of actual industry experience.
If your goals are to pursue a career in sports and recreation administration the Postgraduate Diploma at HKU SPACE is a good place to start.

The project took place at actual working condition, therefore the research facilitates to answer real world problems. Furthermore, I gained much better understanding of the industry that I work for. In these few years, I have been meeting classmates from various sports organizations. We manage to create network which we all enjoy in sharing our valuable experiences, we all broaden our horizon.

During my judge career, I have witnessed some historical moments, such as, the Hong Kong Gymnastics Olympian, Mr. SHEK Wai Hung winning the historical Asian Games Gold Medal at 2014 Incheon Asian Games.
I was studying the Postgraduate Diploma in Sport and Recreation Management in 2015 and it was an enriching academic and personal experience. I had great classmates coming from different backgrounds. Also, our lecturers and guest speakers were excellent, they are from different countries and are the specialists in their respective sectors. Furthermore, we were encouraged to think critically about different issues within the discipline of sport management.
