Arts and Cultural Education Programme

ACEP 2016-2017 Sem 1 courses are available now!


The Arts and Cultural Education Programme (ACEP) was first launched in 2002 and is an educational endeavour at the cutting edge of the University’s vision of whole person education. In order to eliminate the interference from external motives such as the “stick” (punishment) and “carrot” (reward), all courses in this programme are non-credit bearing. The programme consists of a collection of workshops series on arts, social, cultural, creative thinking, and various aspects of personal development.

The programme seeks to help students grow as Whole Person, by providing opportunities to develop various generic skills and the 7 HKBU Graduate Attributes (GAs).
With the establishment of the OBTL at HKBU, each course adopts the OBTL approach with clear intended learning outcomes aligned to the GAs.

Medium of instruction:
Cantonese, Mandarin, English

By the end of this programme, students should be able to:

  1. Identify their own learning strategies and goals for personal development in university study.
