Gateway Education Requirements

The City University of Hong Kong provides students with a quality education that develops their intellectual abilities while providing them with the skills and knowledge base they need to successfully navigate the complexities of the 21st century.

Gateway Education (GE) is the core of CityU's undergraduate experience. The goal of GE is to give students a broad sampling of different academic areas, exposing students to varied disciplines and increasing the value and breadth of their undergraduate education. GE allows students to discover new interests that may present a range of opportunities for further study or career choice. More information on the Gateway Education requirements is available by visiting the CityU website.  

Within the Joint Bachelor’s Degree Program between City University of Hong Kong and Columbia University, students will fulfill Gateway Education requirements using coursework from both CityU and Columbia University, through consultation with their academic advisors at both universities.
