General Education Micro-credits


To encourage students to take initiative in their learning and develop their multiple competencies, we have opened the "General Education micro-credit" courses. This breaks away from the traditional requirement of attending a whole semester for a course and allows students to achieve results within a shorter period of time.

We are also offering "Modular" courses (limited to 5 students per module), where you can secure your spot by registering and complete the required hours directly. You can delve deeper into fascinating module areas, such as "Perceptual Aesthetics," "Cloud Cross-Border," "Life Perception," "Local Practice," and "Digital Technology Micro-Program." For students who prefer flexible learning options, you can sign up directly at the link below. Exciting courses are waiting for you, so hurry up and click on the link below to sign up!


Students who wish to register for the Modular courses must ensure that they are available for all class times before registering. If you are unable to attend all classes, please do not register. If you hold a seat but are absent, you will lose the right to attend any micro-credit courses for that semester.
