Lingnan University

Introduction

Lingnan University is the liberal arts university in Hong Kong and we have the longest established tradition among the local institutions of higher education. Our history can be dated back to 1888, when our forerunner, the Christian College in China, was founded in Guangzhou, and to 1967, when the institution, as Lingnan College, was re-established in Hong Kong. In 2015, Lingnan University was named as one of the “Top 10 Liberal Arts College in Asia” by Forbes.

Our Quality Liberal Arts Education

We offer undergraduate, taught postgraduate and research postgraduate programmes in the areas of Arts, Business and Social Sciences, and our broad curriculum covers an array of general education and interdisciplinary courses to provide students with a firm knowledge foundation across different subjects. We groom students to think critically and creatively, judge independently, care genuinely, and act appropriately and responsibly, and we prepare them to pursue their goals in a rapidly changing environment.

Our Characteristics

True to our identity as a liberal arts university, we are characterised by our broad-based curriculum, a fully residential campus, close faculty-student relationship and an emphasis on exchange and extra-curricular learning experiences.

To gain experience in real work settings and broaden exposure in culturally diverse environments, Lingnan students can participate in various international internship programmes including ASEAN Internship Scheme, Global Internships, Disney Cultural Exchange Program, Mainland Summer Internship Programme and many others. About 80% of our undergraduates can spend a term studying abroad in one of our 190-plus partner institutions in about 40 countries, or participate in short-term summer programmes. We also uphold our motto “Education for Service” by providing students with service-learning and community service opportunities for engaging with society and helping those in need.

Research Excellence

Lingnan University encourages faculty and students to contribute to society through research and knowledge transfer. Our sizable pool of experienced scholars in the arts, business and social sciences disciplines combine scholarly work with applied, policy-oriented research, and address topics in areas like finance, fiscal and monetary policy, cultural policy, creative industries, health and ageing, population, and institutions and governance.

Global Engagement

To broaden the global experiences of students and faculty, we have been dedicated to building a multi-cultural campus and actively establishing strategic collaborations with institutions worldwide. Over 50% of our 180-plus faculty members have an international background in academic training and research work, while more than 300 exchange students pursue their studies at Lingnan every year. Our researchers collaborate with scholars at universities across Asia and around the world, and we have become a member of the Global Liberal Arts Alliance (GLAA) since April 2012.

Why Lingnan

A place where transformation happens.

Liberal Arts and Cross-disciplinary Curriculum

Our students understand issues and analyse problems from different perspectives. The inclusion of a Core Curriculum ensures the balance between disciplinary depth and broad-based education. A Lingnan education will give you the depth and versatility to think and act in an increasingly globalised and interconnected world.

Close Faculty-Student Relationship

Our professors know their students. With our small class size and over 64% of our 202-plus faculty members with an aninternational background either in academic training or research experience, you will get inspired in and out of the classroom.

Students also benefit from our Global Internship Programmes, Student Development Programmes and Mentoring Programmes. These will help you develop global perspectives, creative and critical thinking as well as effective communication skills-timeless tools that prepare you for your first job, and your last one.

The initiatives that Chief Executive Carrie Lam aims to apply to higher and continuing education – which include a HK$30,000 subsidy to eligible secondary school graduates – will certainly trigger increased growth in the sector. But this sector has already developed rapidly over the last few years, due to an increase in bachelor’s and master’s programmes offered by local and overseas institutions. All this activity has increased the demand for support and administrative staff who work in higher education, as well as high-calibre academic staff and faculty members.

The need for the International Higher Education and Management programme

“We see the need for a programme that can nurture administrative staff who work at higher education institutions, and equip them with the latest skillsets and a global perspective,” says Dr Kent Lai, programme leader of the new MA in International Higher Education and Management (IHEM) offered at Lingnan University....

Stock Connect and Bond Connect, for instance, have contributed to the internationalisation of Chinese companies and the yuan,” says Ho. “The banking and finance industry is expected to continue to grow in terms of the sector’s contribution to Hong Kong’s GDP over the next several years. So employment in the sector will likely increase,” says Ho.... [-]

Lingnan’s new Master of Social Sciences in Comparative Social Policy course (International) (IMCSP) incorporates a focus on the study of development issues, welfare policy initiatives and good governance.

The forces inherent in globalisation, among them increasing economic competition and social change, show the value of studying the experiences of different countries and regions as a prelude to dealing with problems and issues that many of us now face together.

“Our lives have been globalised at an unprecedented pace through social media, cross-border flows of people, and the increased interdependence of national economies,” says Dr Stefan Kühner, the Master of Social Sciences in Comparative Social Policy (IMCSP) programme director, “Governments around the world increasingly encounter similar policy challenges, but the specific solutions they adopt continue to vary considerably. Comparing the social policies and politics in different locations can help us understand if a country is typical or unusual and whether it is a leader or a laggard with regard to certain aspects of government policy and in meeting globally defined goals in economic and social development.”...
