How to Apply


In association with Ulster University, U.K., HKU SPACE offers a programme leading to the awards of Master of Science (MSc) in Sport and Exercise Nutrition. The programme is offered on a part-time basis with online teaching which falls in line with the School’s mission in delivering flexible programmes which meet the needs of potential students and the community. 

The programme aims to provide students with appropriate academic training in sport and exercise nutrition to allow graduates of the programme and following further mentored work experience in sport and exercise nutrition, to pursue registration as a sports and exercise nutritionist (SENr) in the UK. Building upon the students' existing knowledge gained within relevant biosciences, the overall aim of the programme is to provide an academically challenging, professionally relevant and focused programme of study for those who wish to pursue careers in sport and performance nutrition or undertake research in this area. The programme will equip students with opportunities for critical reflection and evaluation of current practice, enabling lifelong learning and fostering continuing professional development.


Programme Details

The learning for the programme is divided into a series of modules. Core material in taught modules will be delivered through online teaching. Additional face-to-face support tutorials to each module and full support for the research project will be provided. For the research project, individual supervisor will be appointed to each candidate.
