Programme Aims and Objectives

To be physically active is an integral and important part of healthy living. With the increasing awareness and need for quality and active lifestyles, the numbers of public and private sport facilities, fitness clubs, and residential clubhouses have increased substantially over the years. There is a high demand for professional management of sports and recreation programmes and facilities as well as delivery of quality physical education in school and community environments. With the continual demand for trained graduates in the field of physical education, sport, and recreation management, the "Physical Education and Recreation Management" (PERM) programme was established in 1992. The overall aim of the PERM is to provide students with sufficient depth and breadth of knowledge, skills, and practical experience (internship) in the discipline of physical education and recreation management. Furthermore, under the ethos of "whole person education" of the University, our students will also receive a strong liberal arts education such that they can embark on a variety of careers.

Specifically, the objectives of the PERM are to enable students to:

The PERM programme covers sport science theory and knowledge and sport skill practical courses that are essential for a physical education teacher trainee as well as for a sport coach. For those students who opt for the "Teaching Physical Education in Schools" career track, they need to enroll for an additional year of "Teacher Certificate" programme. By fulfilling the teacher training requirement, graduates can then be eligible to apply for the "Registered Physical Education Teacher" status.

Yeung Ting Ting (US)

It was my best summer ever to have my internship at YMCA Camp in the U.S.! As an over-night camp counsellor, I ran outdoor programs for children aged from 7 to 16 and closely took care of them to have great experience at the camp. I experienced the big differences of education style and working culture between HK and US which inspired me a lot. Apart from the internship, it was also a good opportunity to travel several fabulous cities like San Francisco, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles with my dear classmates. I have grown a lot by experiencing an awesome summer."


Tsang Uen Wing Jannet, (HK)

I had my internship in the Leisure Cultural Services Department - Tuen Mun Swimming Pool and Tuen Mun District Leisure Services Office. During my internship, I had chances to understand more about preparation process of various events held by LCSD. For examples, I participated in the preparation processes of monthly swimming classes and annual district age group swimming competition. I learnt a lot during these processes. I also met a group of good colleagues and friends during my internship. We worked together in order to make the event successful. Those memories are unforgettable. I learnt a lot during my internship in LCSD.

Ng Ka Yan (Yabuli, China)

It was an unforgettable experience at Club Med as an intern. As I was given opportunities to experience different new tasks. Since Club Med is a well-known resort located in many places around the world. It provides a list of services and activities, such as food and beverage, facilities, sports activities and entertainment shows. During this internship, I was so glad that I could be a part of its circus team, it was the great challenge for me since I had no past related experience in this field. However, I felt pleased when I completed my first circus performance. This is definitely a fruitful and amazing memory in my life.




Yeung Po Kiu (Taiwan)

During my past summer semester break, I went to Camp Taiwan for my internship. I worked as a counselor at the camp for 10 weeks. As English as main medium, we uses English whenever communicating with other campers or the staff. It was a good time for me to train my English listening and speaking skills. As being a counselor, my job was to design and lead youth and teen campers to experience natural beauty and outdoor activities like zip line, canoeing, or river tracing. After my summer internship, I found myself leadership skills, communication skills, as well as self-confident to improve. This Oversea internship will be marked as unforgettable experiences in my life!
