Experiential Learning Stages

Stages of Development


As a leader of tomorrow, University student should not only be equipped with leading skills, but also to possess in-depth knowledge, positive values, be responsible, and be willing to give and actively engage to the community.

Understanding and caring is the paramount of responsibility. Through experiential learning, i.e. concrete experience, reflective observation, abstract conceptualization and active experimentation, students would enhance their knowledge and skills which they can utilize and transform into actions for the common good of the society. Moreover, their personal values would be established.  

This programme embarks multi-dimensional understanding of Hong Kong’s current affairs, Government policies and social development, as well as her interaction between Mainland China and surrounding regions, from historical, sociological, cultural, political and economic perspectives. It also encourages critical thinking and self-reflection, in order to nurture responsible young leader with rational and critical mindset, creativity and positive values..


  • To raise students’ civic awareness and their interest to current affairs and social policy
  • To encourage students to think in multi-dimension and critical ways to build up personal values
  • To build sense of belonging through understanding in the current development of Hong Kong
  • To encourage students in taking up role and responsibility of a civic leader and be actively engaged to the community
  • To nurture responsible citizenship, thus building a harmonious society

It was the responsibility of us, the organising committee team, to guarantee the safety of all participants and to make the best possible arrangement for the study tour. It was the most rewarding for us to see the participants' eagerness to explore the Inner Mongolian culture, and their satisfaction in the learning process.
- LI Yan Ying, Elva (BBA Accounting / Year 2)

I feel excited every time I go on a trip. Travelling means a lot . We can meet new people, learn new cultures and languages and taste local cuisine. This study tour provided me with a chance to understand the culture of Inner Mongolia and inspired me to think about the definition of culture.
- CHOW Jung Sing Jeff (English and Literature Studies / Year 3)


I have to judge the credibility of what I saw in Inner Mongolia with my knowledge. Yet some feelings were genuine. I felt relaxing and comfortable to get along with my teammates in the eight-day trip. It was heart-warming that we took care of each other when something accidentally happened.
