GE Breadth Learning Strands - New Six Arts (from 2024/25 and onwards)
 
GEN New Six Arts (from 2024/25 and onwards)
  • From 2024/25 and onwards, a new common core component, the New Six Arts, will be incorporated into the General Education curriculum to replace the existing General Education Breadth Learning Strands (Strands 1-3).
  • One of the purposes of introducing the New Six Arts to the General Education curriculum is 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.

Course Structure

  • Students (in cohorts 2023/24 and before) who have not taken any GELS (Strands 1-3) by then can take the New Six Arts courses to fulfil the original GELS requirements.
  • The New Six Arts courses will adopt a 2+1 cp structure. Students have to take ONE 2 cp course and ONE corresponding 1 cp course of the same set of New Six Arts within the same semester.
  • Students are allowed to take ONE set of the New Six Arts courses. The extra New Six Arts course(s) could NOT be taken as Elective(s).
