Programme Structure

English version中文版本
Under the 4-year undergraduate degree structure, students entering HKBU are required to take a suite of GE courses in order to gain a multi-disciplinary learning experience. To foster the intended learning outcomes of the GE Programme, the 38 units required under the Programme are divided into 2 categories, Core Requirements (26 units) and Distribution Requirements (12 units), as in the table below:

Core Requirements Distribution Requirements
Units Units
University English 6 Areas of Learning (b)
University Chinese 3 Arts 3
Public Speaking 3 Business 3
Information Management Technology (a) 3 Communication/Visual Arts 3
Numeracy (a) 3 Science/Chinese Medicine 3
Physical Education (a) 2 Social Sciences 3
History and Civilization (a) 3 Interdisciplinary (c) 3
Values and the Meaning of Life (a) 3
University Life 0
Total 26 Total 12
(a) Each of the above denotes a category in which a list of courses will be available for students’ selection.
(b) Students will take one course in each of the four areas outside of their own Faculty/ School/ Academy, for a total of 12 units. Students may also take interdisciplinary courses to fulfill the Distribution Requirements.
(c) Interdisciplinary courses will be listed for two (or more) areas of learning (i.e. with two course codes starting with GDXX18XX or GDXX19XX). Students have to decide which area (outside of their own Faculty/ School/ Academy) they would like the course to fulfill.


Core Requirements

The aim of the Core Requirements is to provide students with the transferable skills, attitudes and values that will help them lead balanced and successful lives both during and following their university education.

All students are required to take 6 units in University English (I & II), 3 units in University Chinese and 3 units in Public Speaking. Students can choose 1 3-unit course from each of the following categories: Information Management Technology, Numeracy, History and Civilization, and Values and the Meaning of Life. In addition, students will also choose 2 one-unit courses to fulfill the 2 units required for Physical Education, and to complete the non-credit bearing University Life Programme.

Distribution Requirements

The aim of the distribution requirements is to broaden the scope of students’ learning by having them pursue areas of knowledge outside of their major discipline. The identified areas of learning include: Arts, Business, Communication/Visual Arts, Science/Chinese Medicine and Social Sciences. Students will take one course in each of the 4 areas outside of their own Faculty/School/Academy, for a total of 12 units. Students may also take interdisciplinary courses to fulfill the Distribution Requirements. Interdisciplinary courses will be listed for 2 or more areas of learning. Students have to decide which area outside of their own Faculty/School/Academy they would like the course to fulfill.

核心必修課

「核心必修課」的目的是讓學生掌握可轉移技能,培養適當的生活態度及價值觀,從而幫助他們在大學期間以至日後人生,取得均衡、豐盛的發展。

學生除了必須修讀「大學英文」(佔6學分)及「大學中文」(佔3學分)全部科目外,還須另於「演說技巧」、「資訊科技」、「數理思維」、「歷史與文明」、「價值與人生」等五個類別中各選修一科(各佔3學分),於「體育」中選讀兩個科目(各佔1學分),並完成不佔學分的「大學生活」課程。

分類選修課

「分類選修課」的目的是擴闊學生的知識領域,讓他們接觸本科範疇以外的知識。

「分類選修課」有五大學習範疇︰文學、商學、傳理/視覺藝術、理學/中醫學、社會科學。每個學生的大學本科歸屬於其中一個學習範疇,他們只須於所屬學習範疇以外的四個學習範疇中各選修一個科目,也可選修跨學科類別的科目,合共修讀12學分。跨學科類別的科目涉獵兩個或以上不同學習範疇,學生須決定該跨學科科目歸類為哪一個學習範疇。
