While courses are taught in English, Cantonese is the language used in dormitories and in the community.

Before finalizing course enrollment, make sure you understand the main lecturer in each course.

You are expected to study independently, do the background reading, and incorporate class work and reading in your written papers. Student-centered inquiry and problem-based learning are encouraged.
