Our Learning Partners

Common Core collaborates with student groups and organisations (NGOs, social enterprises) as learning partners. These co-curricular collaborations augment our efforts to build students’ participatory capacities and promote lifelong learning through exposure to a diversity of activities.

Global Liberal Arts Design Experiments


GLADE (Global Liberal Arts Design Experiments) was founded by the University of Hong Kong Common Core in 2018 in order to create ideas, support, and development opportunities for interdisciplinary and interactive taught undergraduate programmes in Research-Intensive Universities around the world.  Given all the unprecedented pressures for rapid change that we all are now facing and the need to seek novel solutions to “wicked” problems, GLADE utilises the affiliation of modest projects between programmes in Research-Intensive-Universities to cross disciplines, faculties, questions, methodologies, sectors, and sites.
