To keep pace with globalisation and broaden its students' international outlook, United College runs a comprehensive Globe-Oriented Active Learning (GOAL) Programme.
Supported by a wide range of scholarships and financial awards, United College students are given ample opportunities to participate in non-local learning activities organised by the College or co-organised with other units of the University. The GOAL Programme encompasses long-term and short-term student exchanges, language and culture learning programmes, research and internship projects. The College also organises a Service Learning Internship Programme (SLIP) to provide internship opportunities for students to work in the overseas NGOs. Through engagement in various cultural settings, students can learn to live and interact with people from different parts of the world.
- In 2018-2019, the College provided financial subsidies to nearly 300 students, with a total amount approaching HK$2,400,000. Students travelled to around 40 cities in benefit of this programme.
- Over 3,700 students have participated in the GOAL programme since 2008.
