  • Higher Diploma in Nutrition and Food Management

As a fourth-year PhD student at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, I am pursuing my studies in the field of medical laboratory science within the Department of Health Technology and Informatics. My academic journey began upon my graduation from HDNFM in 2016. Building upon this foundation, I pursued a top-up bachelor’s degree in human nutrition at Ulster University in Northern Ireland. Following this, I won a vice-chancellor's scholarship to pursue a PhD at Ulster University. However, due to personal reasons, I made the decision to relocate back to Hong Kong and start a new doctoral study at HK PolyU. As I approach the culmination of my research, I reflect on the significance of my time at HDHFM. Not only did it provide me with a solid educational grounding, but it also presented invaluable opportunities and scholarships for personal growth and the pursuit of ambitious goals. Joining the HDHFM program has proven to be a pivotal turning point in my academic journey, and I have no regrets about my decision to be a part of it.

Currently, I hold the position of a full-time research assistant while also pursuing a part-time Master's in Philosophy (MPhil) degree at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (HK Poly U). As an applicant who was not under the Joint University Programmes Admissions System (non-JUPAS), I received valuable support and information from my teachers during my time studying the HD Nutrition and Food Management programme, which helped me secure offers from local UGC universities, namely, CUHK and HK PolyU. Ultimately, I chose to pursue my studies in the BSc Food Safety and Nutrition programme at HK PolyU, where I was able to transfer certain courses taken in the HD NFM, such as Physiology and Biochemistry. The HD NFM programme provided a solid foundation in nutritional sciences and prepared me for the challenges of university education. Additionally, the skills learnt during the programme, such as conducting diet record interviews and anthropometric measurements, have proved useful in my current job centered around nutrition research.

  • Higher Diploma in Nutrition and Food Management

I am now working as a community dietitian. After finishing my Higher Diploma in Food and Nutrition Management, I had the opportunity to further my studies at the University of Newcastle in Australia, where I enrolled in their Bachelor of Nutrition and Dietetics programme and became a registered dietitian.
One great advantage of the HD programme was its transition into university-level studies. The solid foundation in nutrition provided by the programme made it much easier for me to catch up with university courses. Another fantastic aspect of the HD programme was the support and guidance provided by our dedicated lecturers. Not only were they highly knowledgeable in the academic aspects of nutrition, but they also offered valuable advice regarding career paths and development opportunities. Their guidance helped me navigate my way in the nutrition field successfully.

  • Higher Diploma in Nutrition and Food Management

The Higher Diploma in Nutrition and Food Management programme has dedicated teaching staff and a well-structured academic curriculum which prepared me with a solid foundation in nutrition. This has enabled me to join the third year of the BSc in Food and Nutritional science at the University of Hong Kong.  After graduation I had the opportunity to further pursue my study in the Post graduate Diploma in Dietetics (Ulster University) at HKUSPACE and finally realized my dream to be a registered dietitian with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), UK.
