If your answers to the above questions are ‘yes’, you must not miss the upcoming programme! Future 17 is a new global initiative offered by the University of Exeter and Quacquarelli Symonds Limited (QS) in the UK, and leading international universities designed to support students to develop the skills needed to collaboratively tackle 21st-Century global challenges through working with professionals to create innovative solutions to real-world issues associated with one or more of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Future 17 will enable students to collaborate with learners from a consortium of global partner universities in international, interdisciplinary and multicultural teams to tackle challenges through projects defined by SDG Challenge Partners (businesses, charities, governments, NGOs, etc.).

Partner universities:

  • Duke University (USA)
  • Stellenbosch University (South Africa)

Upon successful completion of the Programme, a CUHK undergraduate student could apply to the Office of University General Education for course and unit exemption in the University General Education (University GE) requirements. Following the prevailing practice and framework of granting University GE course and unit exemption, as in the case of a student completing a course in a recognized student exchange programme, up to 3 units in the most approximate University GE Area from among Areas A, B, C or D could be approved depending on the nature of the Future 17 project.
