Lingnan welcomes 89 new incoming exchange students for the Spring 2016 semester. Together with the 18 full-year exchange students who joined the University in September 2015, there are totally 107 incoming exchange students currently on campus. They come from 25 countries including Czech Republic, Finland, Kazakhstan, Morocco, the Netherlands, South Korea and the US.
To help new exchange students adapt to the new environment and understand the local culture, a welcome lunch and three cultural excursions to Cheung Chau, Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery & Hong Kong Heritage Museum and Sheung Wan Heritage Trail were organised between 14 and 23 January.
