BSocSc (Hons) Psychology, 2023 Graduate
The time I spent at Lingnan University was an unforgettable experience in my life. Its small class size enabled me to have closer contact with professors and made more friends. The professors in the Department of Psychology are kind and knowledgeable. They shared with me their research experience and encouraged me to keep my track to PhD. Their words truly boosted my confidence and helped me to keep motivated. Besides, the campus is so beautiful and well-constructed. It is the only university that offers four years hostel in Hong Kong. The hostels are surrounded by mountains and trees. Every time I looked out of the window, I felt peaceful, and my pressure released. The library is my favorite place, where I can always find a quiet and bright place to study with various learning resources. The treasurable experience in Lingnan led me to my postgraduate mental health at the University of Warwick, where I am now. It equipped me with knowledge and a positive attitude to always keep on track.

Studying Psychology at Lingnan University has been an incredibly rewarding journey, which exceeds what I have expected. Through courses covering branches such as social psychology, cognitive psychology, and clinical psychology, I have developed a comprehensive understanding of human behavior, cognition, and emotions. This programme offers diversified learning opportunities for us to broaden our horizons. Engaging in theoretical coursework and hands-on research projects has definitely enhanced my analytical thinking, communication, and problem-solving skills. What I have learned in the past four years is more than that. The most important thing is I could have a chance to practice self-reflection and exploration under a supportive and collaborative environment. Both professional and personal growth have prepared me for my current job in the NGO field. I am excited to continue applying my knowledge and skills to make a positive impact on individuals and society.

BSocSc (Hons) Psychology, 2019 Graduate
The four-years study in the Social Sciences Programme has been an amazing journey I have had. Intellectual development is highly stimulated by the motivating learning environment and the interaction between teaching staff and students. Lingnan University also provides a wide range of opportunities in supporting their students to explore and develop their skills and talents apart from academics, including global exchange programmes, internships and scholarships. The diverse learning experiences at Lingnan have definitely encouraged me to further explore my research interest and career path in clinical neuropsychology; which have led me to my postgraduate research studies in Psychiatry and Brain Sciences at UCL and my current Clinical Psychology education at HKU. I would not be able to maximize my potentials and achieve so much without this undergraduate journey at Lingnan.
