Faculty of Science, The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) - Experiential Learning

Experiential Learning

Our undergraduate curriculum aims at training all-rounded students who move on to be tactful contributors in all areas. The Faculty offers a diverse teaching and learning approach to ensure our students are exposed to the most suitable and effective learning methods, and become high-achieving, all-rounded individuals.

In addition to our rigorous curriculum including lectures, tutorials and laboratory sessions, we encourage all students to take part in a range of activities to increase their exposure and boost their university experience. Such activities come in the form of:

  • Internships
  • Research Opportunities
  • Student Exchanges

Through these experiences, students are able to enhance their ability to communicate and gain global perspective, which helps to prepare them for upcoming challenges in our ever-changing world.
