General Education Programme

The College aims to culture students with entrepreneurial spirit and social responsibility, alongside with our College mission. All students at Wu Yee Sun College have to attend two College General Education courses – 'Entrepreneurial Spirit and Social Responsibility' (or ‘Hong Kong Story’*) and 'College Senior Seminar', and one non-credit bearing course 'College Assembly/ College Forum', which amount to six units in total.

In the first year course 'Entrepreneurial Spirit and Social Responsibility', students would be offered the opportunity to explore themselves, cultivate creativity, learn to be a servant leader and contribute to a sustainable society. They could also learn beyond the classroom through diversified activities and unique experiences. 

After four years of enrichment in the non-credit bearing activities including Forums and High Table Dinners, students would work out a proposal which  promises to bring social benefits to the community.

The College also offers other non-credit bearing General Education activities, such as talks, service-learning, student-initiated activities etc, to let students take part actively in learning activities based on the College motto 'Scholarship and Perseverance' and the mission 'Entrepreneurial Spirit with Social Responsibility'.
