“During this year of studying courses pertaining to kinesiology, I have been exposed to multiple facets of sports science, not only in terms of the health benefits as we all know, but also more in-depth discussion concerning different properties of a wide range of exercise modalities as well as their underlying physiological effects. In truth, I would not have explored so much in this aspect had I not enrolled in this minor. 

Apart from informative lectures consolidating me with basic knowledge, I am glad that there are interactive laboratory and tutorial sessions for us to possess a hands-on experience with the theories taught in the lectures. A few of the examples will be performing the Wingate test on a bicycle and commenting on rehabilitative cases of elderly falls or even post-stroke management. The latter has given me a taste of how to formulate a clinical view of how to approach and assess patients with common conditions witnessed in the ageing population. Such conditions have a strong association with clinical areas such as orthopaedics and neurology, in which my interest lies. 

All in all, I believe this minor of reasonable workload will be a solid stepping stone for anyone who are interested in sports science."

“Since high school, I have a keen interest in sports science and wish to be a team physician in the future. It is fortunate of me to take a kinesiology minor in my enrichment year before continuation of my career pursuit of an orthopedic surgeon. The kinesiology courses provide a fundamental understanding of sports science, both in the improvement of performance aspect and health aspect. 

Kinesiology courses are very interesting and practical. In past MBBS curriculum on Musculoskeletal Block, we were taught anatomy and physiology, but we have never told the applications of these into patient-oriented or performance-oriented cases. For example, exercise physiology broadens my understanding of the use of exercise physiology in improving physical performance and maintenance of general health. Rehabilitation courses are instructional to incorporate anatomy and physiology into injury prevention, recovery, and improvement of physical function aspects. In the upcoming year, there will be a course on biomechanics, which is a vital skill in terms of understanding sports injury.

I would like to express my deepest gratitude to the kinesiology courses professors, tutors, and my classmates. I am sure if you are sports fans, you will enjoy kinesiology courses a lot because it provides both theory and hands-on experience."

“I am fortunate to have read the Minor in Kinesiology during my Enrichment Year in MBBS Year III. After two years of pre-clinical studies, the EXSC courses enable me to get a glimpse of medicine in various areas in a stepwise approach. Through interactive lectures and experiential learnings in field visits and laboratory sessions, I can put knowledge into practice and apply them in my future career. The professors have also given timely feedback and relevant career experience to broaden my horizons as a medical student. The Minor in Kinesiology has not only raised my awareness of physical fitness, but it has also helped build my interest in sports science. The Minor in Kinesiology is definitely a suitable choice for you to delve into sports science through all-inclusive resources and learning from knowledgeable professors."

“I am glad to have chosen EXSC courses as the stepping stone in my pursuit of physiotherapy masters-level course. Quality education is provided by knowledgeable teaching staff through the courses to help me better understand different regimens of exercise science. I can’t thank the professors enough for giving proactive support and advice for my career planning which had been stressful. They are also approachable which makes the lectures more interesting and engaging. Every student who would like to pursue a related study or career, be it strength and conditioning or physiotherapy, should not hesitate to take EXSC courses."

“Minoring in Kinesiology eventually leads me to my true calling of physiotherapy and paves a way for me to study Master of Physiotherapy in the University of Sydney. It provides me with the opportunities to learn the foundation subjects, which are the pre-requisite criteria for studying physiotherapy. These basic knowledge help me to develop a better understanding of the movement problems caused by joints, nerves and muscle disorders. Besides theory, this program allows me to put knowledge into practice. My internship experience ran the gamut from sport psychology counselling to exercise prescription, and even physiotherapy practice. The professors in the School of Public Health not only helped students from other faculty to improve our understanding of the health-related subject, but also gave us professional advice on career development. It is my honour to be part of this program."

“I am fortunate to have the opportunity to take EXSC courses during my final year, when kinesiology was first introduced to biomedical sciences curriculum as a minor option. After years studying human body from pharmacologic, genetic and pathological perspective, exercise science offered me a completely new perspective to understand holistic health. I was intrigued by how powerful exercise or even just physical activity can be. Some diseases like dementia, cancer and mental illness have spent scientists and medical professionals strenuous effort to seek remedies. These treatments are not always promising, some even have intolerable side effects, yet exercise is proven to be a universal drug and prevention to all these intractable diseases. This was when I became increasingly aware of my physical fitness that is essential to cope with daily activities. I am grateful to have met wonderful teachers in course of the study, who provided timely feedback, comprehensive learning resources and most importantly insight to multiple disciplines of exercise science. I would surely recommend EXSC courses to students from any disciplines."

“Studying the EXSC courses at HKU has been a genuinely transforming life experience. The courses such as Exercise Physiology and Rehabilitation Science helped me define my interest in becoming a Physiotherapist. And I learnt much more than I was expecting. Working in the lab and dealing with the day-to-day challenges of doing research for my dissertation taught me much more than books alone could ever do.

The course has also given me great flexibility in terms of diversity learning. I did an exchange programme at University of British Columbia. This experience has not only inspired me to pursue a career overseas, but also given me the chance to meet people from all walks of life.

My lecturers have been truly inspiring people, who I will certainly remember for the years to come. The administrative staff at the university have always been the friendliest and the most supportive.

I believe these EXSC courses and other experiences can provide a solid background and equip you to pursue your further study in physiotherapy and to pursue a career as a physiotherapist.  If you want to achieve your goals related to allied health, fitness, and wellness industry, the EXSC courses are definitely right for you!"

“After completing the EXSC courses in the undergraduate study, it consolidates the knowledge of exercise science and prepares for being as a physiotherapist. Studying kinetic anatomy and exercise physiology perfectly lay me in the groundwork of basic knowledge of human body function and help me to fulfill the pre-requisite knowledge for my future study in physiotherapy. The teachers are exceptionally nice and helpful so do not be shy and ask question if countering difficulties!"

“The EXSC courses cover a wide variety of aspects from exercise physiology to the relationship between exercise and human health. With the understanding of core scientific disciplines underpinning sport and heath, this provides me the first step in preparing to become a physiotherapist in my further study. 

The teaching and academic staff have a wealth of knowledge and experience and are very supportive during my study. I am grateful for the support that I received from the teachers and the School, it was a pleasure learning with assistance and guidance whenever needed. I would definitely recommend the EXSC courses for any students that are interested in getting a grasp on exercise science and potentially pursue a related master's degree or career. The courses not only equip you with knowledge but are also crucial for your future career.”
