The Senate approved at its meeting on July 4, 2017 a credit award scheme for out-of-classroom learning experiences, for piloting for three years from 2017-18. One credit for each out-of-classroom experience/activity may be earned. The credits are academic credits, but will not contribute to the University’s degree requirements (i.e. will not count towards the 240 credits required for graduation). All kinds of out-of-classroom experiences/activities will qualify for such credits, on condition that the outcome of each experience/activity can be mapped to at least one of the University’s six Educational Aims. Applications will be considered all year round by the Sub-group of the HKU Horizons Committee. To learn more, please visit:
