In a world characterized by rapid and often unpredictable change, it is impossible to anticipate the precise knowledge and skills that our students will need once they leave our classrooms. But we can reasonably predict that a broad and integrated knowledge base, together with the capacity and inclination to think critically and imaginatively about a range of issues, both foreseen and unforeseen, will serve them well. HKIEd’s General Education programme prepares students to be active agents of change, by broadening their intellectual horizons, helping them make connections among different areas of knowledge and between their formal studies and life outside the classroom, and strengthening their capacity for sound thinking and good judgement. It offers a varied but balanced mix of individual courses across a range of subject areas and disciplines, set within an integrated structure of Foundation, Breadth and Consolidation courses.
