The Common Core Curriculum will be fully launched in September 2012, with the aim of broadening students’ horizons and learning experience beyond their disciplinary studies. In 2012-13, 140 courses are on offer, providing students with a diversity of choices under the 4 Areas of Inquiries: Scientific and Technological Literacy, Humanities, Global Issues, and China: Culture, State and Society. As a graduation requirement, students will take Common Core courses according to the regulations of their programmes.

To help students make an informed selection of courses, the Common Core Curriculum website provides useful course information, along with a newly opened “Common Core Theatre” showcasing trailers of several courses.
