Common Core Curriculum

The Common Core Curriculum, launched in conjunction with the new 3-year and 4-year curriculums, provides an essential introduction to the academic environment and aims to facilitate the transition from secondary school to university. All HKU undergraduates are required to take courses in four Areas of Inquiry: Scientific and Technological Literacy; Humanities; Global Issues; and China: Culture, State and Society. The Curriculum is designed to provide a key common learning experience for all HKU students and to broaden their horizons beyond their chosen disciplinary fields of study.
