The GE Programme is one of the key elements of the University 4-in-1 education model.  It was introduced in the academic year 2011/2012 and has come to the end of its first cycle in the academic year 2014/2015.

A comprehensive review of GE Programme was conducted in 2014 and the review report was completed in early 2015.  Based on the report, a revised GE Programme was developed with the following major changes:

  1. The areas will be reduced from 13 to 4 and they are:
    • Global Awareness
    • Literature and Humanities
    • Science and Technology
    • Society and Behaviour
  2. There is a compulsory GE course in each GE area and each area will have around 20 GE courses.
    • Global Awareness – Macao and Chinese Civilization
    • Literature and Humanities – Chinese Language and Culture
    • Science and Technology – Quantitative Reasoning
    • Society and Behaviour – Ethics, Values, Law and Society
  3. The credits for GE will be reduced from 36 to 24-27 and these credits cannot be counted towards other course types.  Each Faculty/Programme will design its own distribution of GE courses among the four areas.
  4. In additional to the four compulsory GE courses, students are required to complete the remaining GE credits from the four areas according to the distribution requirement as decided by individual Faculty/Programme.
