General Education at HKBU

Our GE Programme provides students with a well-rounded university education, and is an integral part of the University’s commitment to help them achieve the HKBU Graduate Attributes (GAs). Our GE foregrounds the essential elements of Whole Person Education, such as integration of knowledge, acquisition of multiple perspectives, empathy and critical thinking, and aims to nurture our students to become responsible and responsive citizens.

The GE Programme is designed to equip students with integrated broad-based knowledge, transferable core skills, guiding principles, and attitudes that they need in both their specialized studies and future professional and personal lives. Our GE asks students to open up their minds to new ideas and perspectives, imagine possibilities, and acquire a deeper understanding of people and issues through making connections at personal, societal and historical levels. It cultivates our students to become well-rounded persons capable of fully participating in the fast-changing, interconnected global world.
