Overview

Lingnan University, formerly Lingnan College, is one of the top 10 liberal arts colleges in Asia (Forbes, 2015), with the longest established tradition among the local institutions of higher education. The University was incorporated on 30 July 1999 following the enactment of the Lingnan University Ordinance. Its history, however, dates back to 1888, when its forerunner, the prestigious Lingnan University in Guangzhou, China, was founded.

The University aspires to be recognised as an excellent liberal arts university distinguished by outstanding teaching and superior scholarship. The University is committed to providing a quality education that aims to groom its students to think critically and creatively, judge independently, care genuinely, and act appropriately and responsibly in a rapidly globalised and fast-changing world.

Lingnan University aims to instill a sense of civic duty in its students and to cultivate skills, competences and sensibilities that enable graduates to pursue their goals in a rapidly changing social, cultural and economic environment. Lingnan graduates will have breadth and depth of vision, the desire and capacity for public service and maturity of judgement. Excellent as leaders and employees, Lingnan graduates will continue to benefit from a multi-dimensional approach to learning all through their lives.

True to its identity as a liberal arts institution, Lingnan University is characterised by a small student population, a residential campus, close faculty-student relationship and an emphasis on exchange and extra-curricular learning experiences.
