HKU SPACE is excited to announce that the Master of Science in Sport and Exercise Nutrition programme, offered in collaboration with Ulster University, has successfully obtained accreditation from the Sport and Exercise Nutrition Register (SENr) in the UK. This achievement represents a significant milestone as we are the first international postgraduate programme and the only programme in Hong Kong to receive such accreditation outside England and Ireland.

SENr, administered by the British Dietetic Association (BDA), establishes the professional standards and competencies for Sport and Exercise Nutritionists. Following a thorough review of the programme by the SENr Board, which comprises respected members and key stakeholders in the sport and exercise nutrition profession, this accreditation reaffirms the quality and excellence of our programme. It enables graduates of the MSc programme to register as graduate registrants with SENr.

Diet and nutrition have a significant impact on sport and exercise performance. An optimal diet can help maximize sport performance. Graduate registrants of SENr possess the necessary qualifications and competencies to provide practical dietary recommendations and guidance to a wide range of individuals, from amateur to elite professional levels in sports, to enhance their sport performance and promote physical activity for health.

We are excited to continue our commitment to excellence in education and further strengthen our position as a leading institution in the field of Sport and Exercise Nutrition.
