Engaging with peers, mentors and industry leaders both within and beyond the university, students can apply the knowledge and skills they have acquired in real-world situation. Drawing from these personal experiences, they can then skillfully identify and strategize their path forward.

Through participating in the Conference for Higher Education Research, Symposium on Internationalization and Quality Management of Higher Education, Global Higher Education Webinar Series, and Cities and Governance Seminar Series organized by Lingnan University, students can cultivate and refine their professional knowledge, hone their personal skills, and broaden their global perspectives across various dimensions.
