Non-credit Bearing General Education Programmes for the First Semester, 2022 – 2023
Keen On _______

Welcome (back) to HKU campus!
What are you keen on doing, planning, achieving in this new semester?

GE programmes in HKU have been evolving in many ways since 1995 to keep up with the rapid changes of times and tides. Yet we remain “non-credit bearing” because we believe in the virtue of “learning not for marks” particularly in co-curricular programmes. Therefore, we have built some pillars for you to immerse yourselves into, to explore and learn, and grow without “excess baggage” and pressure. Please check out the programme details below.

Enrolment

starts on 8 Sep (Thu)
Enrolment links will be available in respective programme webpages
