Introducing New Six Arts Courses –
A New Component in General Education Breadth Courses (GEBCs) from 2024/25 and onwards
 
From 2024/25 and onwards, GELS courses (Strands 1-3) (Course code: GEF/GEG/GEH) will be directly replaced by the New Six Arts (GEN), a new common core component. Introducing the New Six Arts aims to enable students to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of Chinese culture and history, equipping them with the necessary life skills and values to meet societal needs.
 
The 2 + 1 cp structure will be adopted for the New Six Arts courses. Students have to register for ONE complete course set (ONE 2-cp course and ONE 1-cp course in the same course set) in the same semester to fulfill the GELS course requirement. Please note that students are NOT allowed to take any extra New Six Arts course(s) as elective(s) from 2024/25 and onwards. Please visit the GE website at https://geo.web.eduhk.hk/web/page.php?id=99 for more information on the New Six Arts Courses.
 
If you have not fulfill the GELS requirement before, please enroll during the online Course Registration (CR) period from 11 May to 13 May 2024 (the start time and end time are different among programmes and students).
