Five major educational measures in College Education

The college system aims to cultivate students into good citizens with a sense of national identity. The communal life and activities in the colleges also aim to enhance students’ qualities in responsible citizenship, global competitiveness, knowledge integration, teamwork and collaboration, service and leadership, cultural engagement, and a healthy lifestyle. In order to develop students’ competencies in these seven areas, the college education provides five major educational measures, including activity learning, communal meal participation, academic support, college credit-bearing courses, and pastoral care.

Activity Learning

College education encourages students to participate in the planning and organization of activities, fostering their competence and skills. Students become both participants and organizers of activities, which helps develop their various competencies.

Communal Meal Participation

College life emphasizes communal dining and interaction among students, playing an important role in character development and cultivating a sense of community.

College Courses

Colleges offer specific courses designed to enhance students’ college experience and equip them with skills for their future careers. These courses help students integrate their academic knowledge with real-world experiences, promote cross-disciplinary collaboration, and enhance their communication skills.

Academic Support and Pastoral Care

Colleges provide academic support to students, including personalized mentorship and regular meetings with academic staff. Student leaders also assist in providing peer support services to their fellow students. Each student in the college system is assigned a mentor who provides guidance and support throughout their university life. College staff and student leaders receive training in mental health first aids and conflict resolution. Most of the academic staff members working in colleges are holders of Global Career Development Facilitator qualification. Additionally, colleges have access to part-time counselors who provide professional counseling services to students.
