Short Description

This is a future-focused programme which enables students to choose their own personalised learning pathway. It is designed for students who aspire to make a difference in the world through various means, such as entrepreneurship, research, advocacy, invention and performance.

Humankind is facing a more unpredictable future as technological advancement has brought disruptive changes and global problems are becoming more complex and serious. Young people need to be more adaptable, resourceful and creative in meeting future challenges.

The curriculum is made up of two major components. Firstly, in the solution-based learning modules, students will go through an active and exploratory intellectual journey consisting of cycles of problem-solving. The problems are contextualised in the real-life settings and students will work in groups under the guidance of their teachers and external specialists. Secondly, students will complete a disciplinary major which gives them in-depth knowledge in a specific domain of their choice and prepares them for further study.

The programme is open to students from all academic backgrounds.

Unique Features

The solution-based learning modules are based on a block design with students being immersed in one set of coherent learning activities around a problem at a time. It is student-centered, solution-based, guided, and aims to facilitate and provide deep learning. In the early years of the programme, the problems will be smaller, more well-defined and there will be more faculty guidance. As students proceed, the problems will be bigger, less well-defined and students will become more independent with less faculty supervision. Examples include findings ways to provide support to care takers of elderly people (Year 1 or 2), revitalization of a heritage (Year 3) and how to feed the world population (Year 4). Students will choose the problems in the solution-based learning modules, as well as the approaches to solve these problems. The programme will give students ample autonomy and flexibility in choosing their modules and study pathway.

Student Learning Experiences

Students will benefit from a number of guided self-learning pedagogies in the programme such as service-learning, collaborative learning and research-led learning. Depending on the problems they choose, they will work intensely with community partners, professionals, artists and entrepreneurs. In addition to joining internships and exchange outside Hong Kong, they will work with overseas students and advisors in joint projects and learning activities such as summer schools.

Career Opportunities

Graduates will be resourceful and innovative problem-solvers and have a dedicated personal mission. They may become entrepreneurs, consultants, researchers or artists. Their skills and abilities will enable them to take on multiple careers which will be the trend in the future society, as well as jobs or industries that are yet to emerge.
