I have made many decisions in life but choosing to pursue BA (Hons) in Contemporary English Studies at Lingnan has to be one of the best ones!

WONG Kwan Ting Janice
BA (Hons) in Cultural Studies, 2018 Graduate

Cultural Studies provides fascinating courses which do not only equip me with different theories and knowledge but also practical skills. A very different mode of teaching is used that students can learn and discover through discussion and it enhances our learning motivation. I am encouraged to step out of my comfort zone and contribute to the community using what I have learnt. Also, I got more chances to engage in cultural activities, like watching cultural performances and participating in workshops. After years of study, I am trained to be more sensitive and critical towards social issues not only from a local perspective but also a global mindset.



HO Ka Hin
BA (Hons) in Cultural Studies, 2017 Graduate

Cultural Studies provided me with a unique experience. I was absolutely spoiled with immense amount of freedom in terms of studying. This is a field of study that encourages students to explore themselves and develop their own identity during the four years of studies. It offered me many opportunities to be engaged in different parts of society. I also had the opportunity to acquire skills during the process, such as video-making skills, interpersonal skills etc. I also developed a more thorough perspective of the world. I believe that my experience in cultural studies has made me a more open-minded person as I have learnt to believe in myself in general.


BA (Hons) in History, 2019 Graduate

Getting to know a group of knowledgeable scholars and friends is the greatest thing that I have experienced as a History major at Lingnan University. Professors devoted their best effort to answer any questions about history and led me to see the truth about the past. The experience of doing the senior thesis was worthwhile and memorable; it allowed me to develop a thorough understanding and my critical perspective on a particular historical subject. I am grateful to all the friends I have met at Lingnan too, as we encouraged each other to work hard through uncertainties. I shall fondly remember my life at Lingnan, all the laughter and tears, and the treasures that are the many teachers and friends whom I’ve met during my time at the university.


NG Selwyn Henry
BA (Hons) in History, 2019 Graduate

During my four years at the Department of History, I learnt the appropriate way of doing historical research: searching for suitable and relevant sources, and doing a critical analysis of the past according to them. Meanwhile, the small-sized classes allowed for many communication opportunities between me and the teachers, and I consistently received useful feedback for both my studies and writing. I sincerely appreciated their passion for teaching and thank them for their contribution to the students and our learning at Lingnan.


KWOK Ka Wing
BA (Hons) in Philosophy, 2012 Graduate

The philosophy curriculum at Lingnan is well-balanced. Students are acquainted with key philosophers in both Western and Chinese history. Also, various branches of contemporary philosophy are introduced. All courses are taught by professors who excel in presenting their insightful understanding with clear and rigorous analyses. The Philosophy Department at Lingnan provided me with the opportunity to study with world-class philosophers. I learnt from them knowledge across numerous disciplines and, more importantly, the way of thinking. A solid foundation had been well laid back then for my current PhD studies. Philosophers are wise, autonomous, reflective, rational, humble. Join us, and you can be the next one!


CHENG Ka Lok Joe
BA (Hons) in Translation, 2017 Graduate

Many people say reading offers you windows to other worlds. As a translation graduate, I assure you that studying translation at Lingnan University will open your mind to a new world as well as a new way of seeing the world. With its diversified curriculum, I have not only been exposed to practical knowledge such as technical skills in handling bilingual translation and interpretation, but I have also been offered all-rounded learning opportunities beyond the walls of classrooms. For example, numerous research seminars and workshops were organised by the Translation Department. The Hong Kong Lingnan Translation Alumni Association has provided me with much useful career guidance before and after graduation. What’s more, I am grateful for being awarded a full scholarship to join a summer exchange programme in Germany, which really enabled me to “step into another world” to learn a new language and culture. If you are also interested in languages, come join our translation family. I believe that you will definitely enjoy the experience.


CHOI Chun Ming Tim
BA (Hons) in Translation, 2005 Graduate

It was a life-changing journey at Lingnan. I was lucky enough to be taken under the wings of giants in the field of literature and translation, who enlightened me with not just knowledge, but also heart-warming and precious mentorship. Their words and attitude, whose lustre remains blindingly bright, were formative influences in my development, both intellectually and personally. They helped shape my professional pursuit into one that rivets on the promotion of language, literature and culture.


YIP Hester
BA (Hons) in Visual Studies, 2017 Graduate

The Department of Visual Studies has paved the way for me to pursue my dream.


Throughout the years of undergraduate study at Lingnan University, I was exposed to different theories of visual culture, from the basics of art history to film studies, and special topics such as light art and videogame theory. The broad scope of VS curriculum introduces students to a wide concept of art, which is helpful in understanding both traditional and contemporary art.


Art conservation has always been my area of interest. In some VS courses, I had the chance to visit conservation laboratories in Hong Kong and learned about the philosophy of conservation during lectures and fieldtrips. With the art education and academic support from VS professors, I was lucky enough to be able to pursue a Master's degree in conservation at Tainan National University of the Arts. Looking back at my study in the VS Department, it absolutely accounts for a large part of realising my dream.
