  • Background

    Education Reform in Hong Kong

    “Hong Kong adopts a 3-year junior secondary, 3-year senior secondary and 4-year undergraduate

    academic system to facilitate a more flexible, coherent and diversified senior secondary and

    higher education curriculum. Drastic changes are expected in the New Secondary School (NSS)

    curriculum, including:

     A stronger emphasis on enabling students to build a broad knowledge base and a solid foundation for whole-person development and life-long learning, and helping them to

    develop individual potentials to meet the needs of an ever-changing society.

     A wider choice to students through different combinations of Elective Subjects as well as module selection within the Core and Elective Subjects to suit their different abilities,

    aspirations and interests.

     Greater emphasis on student-centred pedagogies, and on moral and civic education, into which generic skills such as communication, critical thinking and creativity would be

    infused so that students‟ independent learning abilities could be enhanced.” (Revised

    version of the senate paper on “The PolyU‟s 4-year Undergraduate Degree structure”,

    May, 2009)

     “These changes will have a significant impact on the new undergraduate degree structure and curriculum to be implemented as from 2012/13. A direct consequence is that school

    leavers under the NSS curriculum will receive one year less of the secondary school

    experience. Moreover, they will have had a broader but more diversified learning

    experience upon entering the university. Depending on their choice of subject/module

    combinations in the secondary school, some of them may not posses all the pre-requisite

    discipline-specific knowledge or skills that underpin their studies in their chosen

    discipline in the university.” (Revised version of the senate paper on “The PolyU‟s 4-

    year Undergraduate Degree structure”, May, 2009)

    With the extension of the duration of the undergraduate degree programmes from there years to

    four years, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU), on one hand, resonates the

    recognizatnce of the University Grant Council (UGC) in having “more room for universities to

    “further enhance language education and liberal studies in the context of general education as

    well as to broaden through exposure to areas other than their major subjects, and on the other

    hand paves a sound pre-requisite discipline-specific foundation for their discipline studies.

    Through the re-design of the 4-year curriculi of the three academic undergraduate programmes

    under the Building and Real Estate Scheme (BRE Scheme) offered by the Department of

    Building and Real Estate, the Department continues her mission” to achieve academic

    excellence in the context of construction and real estate”.
