Lingnan University now invites applications for Direct (Non-JUPAS) Admission to its undergraduate programmes for the 2015-16 academic year.

According to the results of the Hong Kong Happiness Index Survey conducted by Lingnan University’s Centre for Public Policy Studies, the Happiness Index for Hong Kong people in 2014 stands at 70.5 (on a scale of 0 to 100), which is the same as last year. The survey outcome is an unexpected one taking into account the current social and political controversies in Hong Kong.

In his Letter to Lingnanians on 12 November, President Leonard K Cheng reported on some recent developments of the University and called on all relevant parties to open their hearts and minds and work together to end the long-drawn-out social and political impasse arising from the Occupy Movement.

The annual “Tin Ka Ping Mainland Scholars and Senior Administrators Exchange Programme” was held from 23 to 27 November, with President Leonard K Cheng invited to share his insight and experience in implementing liberal arts education at Lingnan.

A farewell reception was organised by the Office of Mainland and International Programmes of Lingnan University for more than 150 incoming exchange students on 17 November.

Two art exhibitions entitled “Seeing in Black & White” and “KALEIDOSCOPE” were held in November to showcase fabulous artworks created by students who studied the Visual Studies courses of “Understanding Drawing” and “Digital Imaging” this year.

More than 300 local and exchange students, teachers and staff members shared a Thanksgiving dinner in a warm and delightful evening on 27 November.

Mentors of the 4th Leadership Mentoring Programme co-organised by Lingnan University and the Hong Kong Professionals & Senior Executives Association (HKPASEA) shared their invaluable professional experience with student mentees at a mid-term gathering held on 22 November.
