Centennial College

Introduction

THE BIRTH OF CENTENNIAL COLLEGE

Centennial College is an independent College established by The University of Hong Kong. In 1912, The University of Hong Kong (HKU) opened its doors to its first class of students in a bold initiative to meet the educational needs of society at that time. Now, in its centenary year, HKU has taken another bold step, by establishing Centennial College and bringing a new era of high quality, self-financed, multidisciplinary Bachelor Degree programmes to provide new opportunities for today's students.

LIBERAL ARTS AT CENTENNIAL COLLEGE

At Centennial College, our liberal arts education covers a two-year core curriculum (embracing liberal arts and sciences) and allows students to choose their majors at the end of the second year.

Existing majors will be consolidated and reconstructed into the B.A. programme and a new B.Soc.Sc. programme to be accreditated. We maintain a small size of 800 to 1000 students, emphasising intra-curricular out-of-class activities, international exposure, seminar courses, reading and writing, trans-disciplinarity, interactions, and close teacher-student relationships. In addition to the small number of privately-rented off-campus accommodation provided by HKU, we have plans afoot for the provision of more places.
