To examine the effectiveness of a university subject (Tomorrow’s Leaders) which attempts to promote holistic development in students, students were invited to write personal reflections about the subject. Based on the reflections of 104 students, data were separately rated by two independent raters using a standardized rating form. Intra-rater and inter-rater reliability analyses revealed that the coding of reflections was reliable. Results showed that the informants were generally positive about the subject and lecturers and they perceived that the subject promoted their overall development in different domains. Exemplar cases were highlighted in this chapter.
