Academic programmes in an array of disciplines are offered by eight Faculties , including Arts Business Administration Education Engineering Law Medicine Science and Social Science . CUHK future proofs its educational offerings by listening to industry and government and introducing innovative new programmes such as Biotechnology, Entrepreneurship and Healthcare Management, Computational Data Science, and Learning Design and Technology. CUHK’s robust programmes are supplemented by the provision of state-of-the-art facilities and resources to ensure students have a world-class experience.

 

Over the past decades, continual enhancement has resulted in a balanced curriculum of both breadth and depth . With the support of the Centre for Learning Enhancement and Research (CLEAR), CUHK has consistently been recognised by bodies such as Hong Kong’s University Grants Committee for achieving the highest standards of teaching and learning.


Academic Programmes

At CUHK, a wide scope of academic programmes organised in a four-year undergraduate curriculum structure are offered by its eight Faculties . Currently, the University provides more than 150 major and minor programmes.

 

General Education

General Education forms a key component of undergraduate studies at CUHK. University and College General Education courses are tailored to nurture whole-person development, foster soft-skills and cultivate a strong sense of social responsibility. The University’s General Education programme received the Exemplary Programme Award for Improving General Education from the Association for General and Liberal Studies in 2015 and the Hong Kong’s University Grants Committee Teaching Award in 2016.

 

Physical Education

As the only publicly-funded university in Hong Kong that offers a required Physical Education programme for undergraduates, CUHK is dedicated to promoting sports to enhance students’ whole-person development.

 

Co-operative education and mentorship programmes

The university-wide credit-bearing co-operative education programme, Co-op@CUHK , is designed to bridge the gap between tertiary education and the workplace by providing undergraduate students with experiential work-integrated learning opportunities at an extensive network of partner employers. Mentorship programmes at college, faculty, school, departmental or programme levels serve to expand students’ horizons and widen their networks.

 

Global exchange and internship

CUHK encourages students to participate in global exchange and internship programmes to broaden their horizons and equip students with academic, intercultural, and professional skills which will serve them throughout their professional lives. It also welcomes visiting students from partner institutions around the world, which enriches the diversity of the campus experience and offers international students a unique opportunity to experience Hong Kong.
