Alumni Activities

嶺南人聚首母校,喜氣洋洋齊賀新春,並共享盆菜;當天還有精彩節目和幸運大抽獎,嶺南人趕快報名參加吧!

The 2018 Summer Internship Program is launched under the Lingnanian Partnership Scheme. It will be jointly organized by LUAA and Lingnan University to line up internship partners and students of high calibre. We are proud that many of our alumni are specialists in different professions, self-employed, or holding senior positions in the commercial world.

The main objective of this program is to extend Lingnan students’ all-round competence in the real working environment under the leadership and guidance from our experienced alumni. It is expected that this program will motivate more alumni to get in touch with their junior brothers and sisters in Lingnan and, as a result, to unite most if not all Lingnanians to work together for the betterment of Lingnan education and its image.
