The General University Requirements (GUR) at The Polytechnic University of Hong Kong (PloyU) has been developed and implemented since the 2012/13 academic year under the reform of education system in Hong Kong. To examine the effectiveness of GUR at PolyU, the present study investigated student’s subjective perception in the academic years of 2012/13 and 2013/14 using the Student Feedback Questionnaires (SFQ). Results showed that the GUR subjects were generally well-received by the students. Besides, students held different perceptions of different GUR components and there was improvement in students’ learning experience and staff teaching over time. While there was an increased satisfaction with Language and Communication Requirements subjects, there was a decline in satisfaction with Service-Learning subjects.
