Cluster Area Requirements

The intention of PolyU’s undergraduate curriculum is to provide a balanced and all-rounded education experience for you. CAR subjects are general education subjects that aim to nurture your intellectual capacity, global outlook, communication and critical thinking skills from a multidisciplinary perspective.

 

 

There are four different cluster areas of CAR

CAR A: Human Nature, Relations and Development

CAR B: Community, Organisation and Globalisation

CAR C: History, Culture and World Views

CAR D: Science, Technology and Environment

There are three additional requirements in CAR:

i. China Studies Requirement (CSR)

ii. Chinese Reading and Writing (CR/CW) Requirements*

iii. English Reading and Writing (ER/EW) Requirements

*Not applicable to non-Chinese speaking students or students whose Chinese standards are at junior secondary level or below

 

Update: For subjects offered for PolyU International Summer School 2019 during 2018/19 Summer Term, please refer to here.
