The General University Requirements (GUR) is a component of the new 4-year undergraduate program at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. This study examined students' views and experiences of the GUR using a qualitative methodology. Written comments of 240 freshmen, sophomores, and senior-year students with reference to open-ended questions on their memorable experiences in GUR study were collected. The qualitative findings suggested that students generally had positive views of the GUR in terms of its widely-adopted active and experiential learning pedagogy, useful and attractive contents, caring teaching staff, and rich learning outcomes. Challenges were also identified for further improvement of the GUR.
