Guidelines for Partnership


To qualify as a Hong Kong Learning Partner of the Common Core, your student group or organisation must satisfy all the following conditions:

  • Student groups MUST be run by current HKU students.
  • The purpose of your group or organisation should align with our mission of teaching trans-/interdisciplinarity, sustainable development goals, and/or student future readiness to HKU students.
  • A detailed plan of how you will work with the Common Core in the next 12 months
  • Be willing to contribute or participate in Common Core events if invited.
  • Update the Common Core on any changes to your mission or purpose, including changes to any of your key stakeholders.

Annual Review

Every Learning Partner will need to undergo a review process every year to ensure continued eligibility for partnership.
