Student Services and Opportunities


1) Student Medical and Dental Scheme

Full-time students can enjoy health services such as the Student Medical Benefits Scheme and Student Dental Scheme provided by the University.  Additionally, the Office of Student Affairs regularly organise health campaigns such as talks on health education and vaccination programmes to educate students on the importance of healthcare and disease prevention.

The Student Medical Benefits Scheme includes general practitioner consultations and prescriptions.  It covers simple laboratory tests and x-rays when presented with a GP’s referral letter. Full-time students can pay a nominal fee (HKD20) for each consultation by presenting their Lingnan University Student ID card.  The Dental Scheme covers basic dental treatment at nominal fees for full-time students.  Other forms of dental treatments and services will also be provided at a preferential rate.

The nearest clinic is at the Fu Tai Shopping Centre (10- minute walk from the campus)

2) Insurance

The Student Medical Benefits Scheme does NOT cover hospital bills, medical and accident insurance.  For better protection, non-local students are strongly advised to buy their own insurance that includes coverage for travel, personal accident, medical expenses, hospitalisation, and other related costs in their hometowns or home countries before arriving in Hong Kong.


3) Government Medical Services

Non-local students with a valid Hong Kong Identity Card are eligible for government medical services or hospital treatment (in- and out-patient services) at local rates in Hong Kong.  The nearest public hospital is Tuen Mun Hospital.


4) Chronic Illnesses

Non-local students who require regular medication are advised to bring an ample supply of their prescribed medicine with them as it may not be readily available in Hong Kong.  We suggest students obtain the name of their medication, including its chemical or generic name, from their doctor and bring a copy of the prescription with them.


Counselling Service and Support Service for Students with Special Needs

2) Support Service for Students with Special Needs

Students with special needs should register with the Office of Student Affairs at the beginning of the academic year.  This will give the University sufficient time to make the necessary arrangements, such as providing equipment to facilitate the student’s attendance in lessons and examinations.


Career Advising Services

The Office of Student Affairs provides career advising services to assist students in preparing for their employment after graduation.  These services include mentoring programmes, internship opportunities, job preparation workshops, and job information platforms.


Campus Life

1) Student Societies/ University Teams

To enrich the campus life experience at Lingnan, students are encouraged to join student societies or university teams.  This offers a great opportunity for students to engage with other peers, build lasting relationships, and develop their interests and skills outside of the classroom.


The Lingnan University Students’ Union (LUSU) registered with the Societies Registration Office, serves as the sole independent organisation representing all full-time students at the University.  Most of the student societies including Programme-based societies and interest clubs are affiliated to LUSU.  Students are encouraged to join the societies as members or office bearers.


To help students develop their talents and unlock their potential, the University encourages them to join the University sports teams or cultural teams.  The University has 39 sports teams in 19 kinds of sports.  The sports teams participate in various inter-collegiate sports competitions, particularly those organised by the University Sports Federation of Hong Kong, China Ltd (USFHK).  In addition, the University has four University cultural teams including the Dragon Boat Team, Lion Dance and Martial Arts Team and Debate Teams (Chinese and Putonghua).  These teams participate in several high-profile events and competitions every year.  


2) Student Development Awards

A wide range of student development awards are offered to students. Students are encouraged to participate in these meaningful student development programmes where the Office of Student Affairs would provide subsidies and assistance.  The awards are:

  • The Providence Foundation Outward Bound Leadership Training Awards
  • AIA Foundation Young Leaders Development Programme
