General Education and Leadership Training Programmes

GE Programme

Lee Woo Sing College cares a lot about students’ moral and intellectual development. We provide students with whole-person education through a wide range of programmes, to nurture future leaders. The goal of our general education courses is to provide background and core skills students can later use in their studies and profession. Combined with core and elective elements, students would have a wide range of choices of courses that fits their personal development needs. We believe, through general education, students will learn logical and critical thinking skills that help them knowing the world and solving problems. These skills can be carried over into their future professions, no matter what industries students end up in. Highlights of College general education programmes:

  • Renowned professionals from the community and social enterprises are invited to conduct a wide range of general education elective courses. Those courses include " Future of Food: Plant-based Living" in collaboration with Green Monday; " Evolution of Universal Communication: Debate and Application" to be conducted by Ms. Mary Cheung; " Experience the Kunqu and Peking Opera" to be conducted by renowned artists from Shanghai and “The Beauty of Chinese Painting” to be conducted by Chinese painting experts.

Prof Joseph Kwong“ ‘What kind of person do I want to be?’ This question is one of the key elements for guiding students to achieve a fruitful and meaningful University life.  In Lee Woo Sing College, we ask you to think even further - ‘How to develop myself into the type of person I aspired to be?’ - this is also the way we inspire our students to develop into all-round excellence via our Leadership Training and General Education Courses.

Our programmes bring forward broad interdisciplinary and learning approaches, through different teaching strategies, in order to widen students’ perspective and learning abilities. In the long run, we hope to instill our students with a wide range of knowledge, attributes and experiences that they can draw on for the challenges in the future."
