Program

LingnanHong Kong 2

As the only liberal arts university in Hong Kong, Lingnan is committed to the provision of quality education distinguished by the best liberal arts traditions. It adopts a whole-person approach to education which enables its students to think, judge, care and, ultimately, act responsibly in the changing circumstances of Hong Kong, the region and the world.

Lingnan University, founded in 1967, the only government-funded liberal arts university in Hong Kong, traces its heritage to its predecessor in China, first established in 1888.

The University is small, warm, friendly, and welcoming. It has a relatively small student number amongst the universities in Hong Kong and is committed to maintaining a close faculty and student relationship.

Prior knowledge of Chinese is not required.

Lingnan University is firmly committed to student exchanges.
