The Common Core
A Program to Broaden, to Ignite and to Empower

Making a Difference to Your University Study ...

University education is more than just professional training. The common core aspires to bring students a balanced and broad education that nurtures them to be responsible citizens and independent thinkers with the heart and aspiration to excel in their endeavors.

Through the common core experience, students will not only excel in their chosen discipline of study, but will also be nurtured through the study of arts, humanities and cultural studies. The program aims to develop students as intellectuals. They learn to appreciate and respect cultural diversities, follow their heart and aspirations in their endeavors, serve our communities, and take the lead to advance social justice and the well-being of mankind.
