Have you realized that university education isn’t just about going to classes, studying for exams, and getting a certificate? Have you ever thought about how to attain a whole-person development during your university life?
The Whole Person Development Award Programme (WP) is an overarching programme that encourages all UM degree programme students to participate in different extracurricular activities, cultivating their balanced development in the UM competencies score (CS) areas (Citizenship with Global Perspectives, Cultural Engagement, Healthy Living, Interpersonal Relation and Teamwork, Leadership and Service), thereby also fostering their habits of life-long learning.
“CS” Areas of Development：
By joining the Programme, you are encouraged to participate in various on-and-off-campus extracurricular activities, which are grouped into 5 “CS” areas according to the nature of the activities. The “CS” areas are:
- Citizenship with Global Perspectives – Activities that develop your career planning and development, which also include activities related to further education, develop your intellectual skills and talents as well as your world view.
- Cultural Engagement – Activities that develop your art appreciation and artistic skills.
- Healthy Living – Activities that develop your knowledge about physical education, physical fitness and sports skills.
