The HAVE, U Can programme was originally designed to enhance secondary school students’ holistic competencies and virtues and prepare them for career and life. Approximately 400 secondary students have participated in the programme since its establishment in 2017 and it was extremely well-received among teachers, parents and students. We have now modified this programme and tailored to meet the needs and interests of 1st and 2nd Year undergraduate students.
This 5-day-and-4-night student-centered programme covers a challenging schedule of activities and events as well as an exciting residential hall experience dedicated to providing students with immense opportunities to learn, grow, communicate, and express. The programme will have an initial intake of 240 first and second year student participants. In addition, the programme is looking to recruit 60 Year 3 & 4 undergraduate students to become peer mentors and provide assistance to a group of mentees. The programme aligns with the university’s educational aims and graduate attributes.
At the end of the programme, students are expected to be able to demonstrate the following competencies:
4. Communication Skills
5. Presentation Skills
6. Organisational Skills
7. Time and Self-Management
8. Critical Thinking
9. Problem Solving
18. Responsibility and Trust
All participating students and mentors will be awarded a certificate stamped by all 6 universities upon satisfactory completion of the programme.
**For HKU students, a credit for out-of-classroom learning experience will also be given.
Applications are now open to all eligible student participants and mentors.
Get inspired and be ambitious.
Under the facilitation of trained mentors, participants will immerse themselves in a fun, collaborative learning environment and engage in a wide range of interactive activities. From team building to role playing to planning a business, each activity is carefully designed to enhance a specific set of holistic competencies and virtues and to strengthen students’ self-awareness and self-confidence. In these activities, students will be constantly challenged while experimenting and developing their own approaches to work towards reaching the activity goals.
The HAVE, U Can Programme registration is open to all current undergraduate students of the 6 participating universities.
