Learning Environment

The learning environment provides the context in which students engage actively with their studies. It is informed by the desired programme-level learning outcomes, and it specifies the content and resources (both traditional and electronic) which support this design. The learning environment also encompasses a range of physical and virtual spaces. CUHK has an impressive physical environment and a number of major building projects add capacity for the increased student population. One project of especial interest is the development of a number of Learning Commons, such as those in the Library – to encourage self-directed learning, individually and in groups. There are eLearning platforms and a range of student-support services. In addition, the Colleges provide both physical learning spaces and an atmosphere of intellectual endeavour within a community of budding scholars.

The learning environment extends beyond the campus: there are numerous opportunities for academic exchange abroad and for internships both locally and abroad.
