Students admitted to first-year-first-degree (FYFD) places with Advanced Standing may be granted exemption. Details are given in “III. University Core Requirements” under the Annex of the General Regulations Governing Full-time Undergraduate Studies.

(a)

General Education Foundation (GE Foundation) Programme

6

 

The GE Foundation Programme aims to provide all undergraduate students with a common learning experience and foundation for university learning. It consists of two compulsory courses:

·     UGFH1000 In Dialogue with Humanity or UGFH1001 In Dialogue with Humanity (Cross-institutional)

·     UGFN1000 In Dialogue with Nature or UGFN1001 In Dialogue with Nature (Cross-institutional)

All students (including LLB and MBChB students) are required to complete these two courses which engage students in dialogues on perennial concerns of human existence through the reading of classics. Taught in seminar style, they are designed to help students cultivate knowledge, attitudes and skills that are essential for independent learning.

 

(b)

The Four Areas

9

 

(i)      All students (except LLB and MBChB students) should complete at least one course (2-3 units) from each of the following Four Areas of University GE:

Area A (UGEA) Chinese Cultural Heritage

This area introduces students to the essential characteristics of Chinese culture. By way of an integrated approach, students will learn to appreciate and evaluate the Chinese cultural heritage and its relevance in modern life from a broad intellectual perspective.

Area B (UGEB) Nature, Science and Technology

This area broadens students’ perspectives on nature, science and technology. It introduces students to various principles, discoveries and methods of science. Students will learn to appraise with a scientific attitude and to evaluate human’s role in being part of nature and the impact of science and technology on modern life.

Area C (UGEC) Society and Culture

This area enhances students’ understanding of the ways in which human societies are constituted and human cultures are represented, in their generality as well as diversity. Students are introduced to the theories and/or methodologies through which social, political, economic or cultural issues are studied.

Area D (UGED) Self and Humanity

This area enables students to explore the diversity of human values, reflect on the meaning of human endeavors, and gain a better understanding of themselves.

 

 

 

 

 

(ii)   LLB students:

 

 

LLB students who neither register on a Double Degree stream nor on a path to a Minor will be directed by the Faculty of Law to take 6 units of courses in the Four Areas of University GE as partial fulfilment of the 13-unit non-law electives. Students are strongly recommended to take, as part of those 6 units, one course in Area A (UGEA).

 

 

 

 

 

(iii) MBChB students:

 

 

MBChB students are required to take 3 units in Area A (UGEA) and designated courses in bioethics as alternatives to fulfilling 6 units of University GE under Areas B, C and D.

Designated courses in bioethics include MEDU1140 (Term 2 of this one-year course; recognized as 1 unit), MEDU2140 (recognized as 1 unit), MEDU3700 (recognized as 1 unit), MEDU3800 (recognized as 1 unit), MEDU4300 (recognized as 1 unit) and MEDU4400 (recognized as 1 unit).

In respect of the University Summer Session, students are allowed to enrol in one University GE course during the course registration period and to enrol in the second University GE course during the add/drop period subject to the availability of class quota. The aforesaid ceiling on University GE courses shall include GE Foundation courses, courses in the Four Areas, together with the departmental double-coded courses and the courses of non-local tertiary institutions when these two types of courses are recognized for fulfilment of University GE requirements.

 

 

 

b. i)   Students should complete in one GE Foundation course in Year 1 Term 2 and the second GE Foundation course in Year 2 Term 1.

     ii)   GE Foundation courses are the co-requisite for the courses in the Four Areas. Students should have completed or enrolled in at least one of the two GE Foundation courses before they are allowed to enrol in any course(s) in the Four Areas. This co-requisite requirement also applies to the departmental double-coded courses and the courses of non-local tertiary institutions taken in the current degree of study when these two types of courses are recognized for fulfilment of University GE requirements.

 

 

 

c.       For broadening purposes, there is course enrolment restriction/exclusion with respect to the major studies of the students concerned and to course(s) the students have already taken.  Such restriction/exclusion has been stipulated in the “Course List”. Students who have declared a new major are advised to check the course enrolment restriction/exclusion in the Student Handbook of their admission year. If any of the University GE courses taken by a student in the past fall(s) under the restricted/excluded courses of the student’s new major, the units earned in the past course(s) will be counted towards general elective and overall units completed; and the student have to take other University GE course(s) to make up for the required units. 

 

 

 

d.      Some University GE courses are also double-coded with departmental/programme courses. Double-coded courses are indicated in the “Course List”. If students would like to use the units earned from such departmental/programme courses to fulfil the University GE requirement and that the GE course enrolment restriction/exclusion is duly fulfilled, they shall submit an application to the Office of University General Education. If students would like to use the units earned from a University GE course to fulfil  programme requirement, they have to apply to the relevant Department/Programme Office, and students should take another University GE course to make up for the required units.
