To better prepare students to select a major of study, a flexible first-year curriculum and a Faculty Package of courses have been designed for students with different preparations. In the first year, students will study at least three courses from the Faculty Package according to their interest, ability and the courses required for their desired major. The package contains five groups of subjects, and they are as follows:
- Life Sciences
Each group consists of several courses that are available to students with different science backgrounds and interests. The first course shall be chosen from the student’s most desired major programme. The second course shall be chosen from a relevant subject, and the third course shall be chosen from the remaining groups. For details of the faculty package courses, please refer to the section "Faculty Packages" of the Undergraduate Student Handbook.
