Our Graduates

  • Cheri Pong graduated in 2019 from the Political Science Major .

    Completing the 4-Year Social Sciences Programme at Lingnan is a beatific and enthralling experience in my life. Professors are generous enough to offer timely help on issues, ranging from intellectual guidance to future career planning. With their advice and encouragement, I become more confident to step out of my comfort zone and seize opportunities for my personal growth. Blessed enough to receive numerous scholarships and grants, I could fund my term-long exchange in London and work as a financial news editor intern at Yicai (第一财经) in Shanghai. Joining the Civic Engagement Programme at Lingnan, I got the taste of teaching as a peer-mentor at a community service centre in Tuen Mun. These exposures capacitate me to develop careers as a researching consultant and analyst at multinational corporations before further studies.


  • Arthur Li graduated in 2010 from the International Studies Stream (IS).

      Arthur Li



    Hi, I am Li Wing Kit Arthur. I was a graduate of the International Studies(IS) Stream, of the Social Sciences Faculty, in 2010. I am now furthering my Master's Degree studies at Peking University (PKU), expecting to graduate in July 2012. The degree I am pursuing at PKU is Master of International Studies, majoring in International Political Economy.

    I have had the opportunity to study various IS courses in Lingnan. The courses that I took provided me with a good understanding of not just Asian and global politics, but also the inter-linkages between the political and economic aspects of global affairs. In class, we were regularly discussing and debating current issues. So doing helped me learnt a lot about current issues and inter-personal skills.

    Apart from my studies, I also joined the Hong Kong Auxiliary Police as a Police Constable. Lingnan University's Department of Political Science and its professors fully supported me in contributing to the broader community. This is also a good experience that I believe would lead to much greater success for myself in the future.

    It is with the support of the professors in this department that I proceeded to study further at Peking University. I would particularly like to thank Prof. Brian Bridges and Dr. C. P. Chung for their unreserved recommendation such that I can further my studies now.

    I would like to encourage all Social Sciences Students to choose Political Science subjects for a bright future.

  • Jim Chan graduated in 2003 from the China and Asian Pacific Affairs Stream (CAPA).

    I graduated from CAPA in 2003. I don't do anything in politics now but I don't think the academic experience was irrelevant to my life. Politics includes everything in the real world. It is so real that I cannot ignore it.

    2003 was the hardest time of Hong Kong, with SARS and the 1st July demonstration; if there were several important years in Hong Kong history, 2003 must be one of these years. Graduated in this year, we saw much about politics. And it was not merely the news, it was our life. From this year, everything related to politics and finally related to us. Fortunately, a graduate from Politics Department definitely sees things differently and this explains more.

    Politics is not a game of the small circle. It determines all resources allocation in a city or a country. Toward a democratic society, if we don’t care our life, who cares? That's the reason to learn more politics.

  • Eric Pun graduated in 1999 from the Asian Pacific Studies Stream, which was the predecessor of the China and Asian Pacific Affairs Stream (CAPA).
     Eric Pun

    Hi, dear fellows, I am Eric Pun. I was a graduate of Asian Pacific Studies Stream (now is called CAPA), Social Sciences Faculty in 1999. I am now furthering my studies at Peking University. My major here is Modern Chinese History and I am PhD Candidate.

    The reason I choose APS Stream in Lingnan was very pragmatic. It is simply because Hong Kong is located in Asia and just returned to her motherland in 1997.Eric and PKU classmates

    In APS stream, the courses not only cover political aspects, but also economic as well as diplomatic aspects. During my period in APS, I discovered that I cannot just consider an event from one perspective or even the above three perspectives, but should adopt a mixed perspective of three or more together. In a brief word, the APS course provide me with a fuller picture and understanding of how complicated the Pacific region is. This method not only can be applied to my studies, but also to problem solving in dealing with my daily life.

    In fact you can say that my major here is learning the past history of the Pacific region, and then you can understand how it is closely related to what I had learnt in APS. The major difference from APS is that I am trying to track back its past history now.

    Here I would like to thank Dr C. P. Chan and Dr Y. C. Wong, for their recommendation so that I can further my studies at Peking University now and Dr Chan's supervision on my under-graduate dissertation.

  • George Leung  graduated in 2001 from MPhil in Social Sciences and 1999 from the Asian Pacific Studies Stream.

    "To be a professional in management and human resources working in Greater China" was my career expectation after graduating from Lingnan. To achieve,my aspirations, knowledge of China's political and economic development, global vision of the Asian Pacific region and research methodology are three essential elements.

    Thanks to the five years studies in Lingnan, i.e. three years of Asian Pacific Studies (APS) and two years of Mphil in Economics, I not only have been equipped with the three major elements, but also have built up and enhanced inter-personal skills through student activities in the campus.

    There are several courses I learned through professional academics, which had a great impact on my future development. For example, Introduction to Political Science contributes to build a basic foundation of understanding government enforcement and popularity in Hong Kong and the world over. The various institutions and policies of the Contemporary China are very important for learning the structure of the Chinese government. George and Dr. Y. C. Wong Regional Development in China, which is one the topics of my senior thesis, facilitates to help the students with in-depth knowledge of economic development from both political and economic perspectives. After learning this course, I found myself having obvious advantages compared with business faculty graduates.

    Encouraged by the professors in Lingnan, I proceeded to have further study in a well-known business school in UK. After completion of my study with a master degree I started my working career in Shanghai, China. My professional knowledge of human resources and project management experiences accumulated in the three years stationed in China greatly add value to my CV. This is also because of the solid foundation built in Lingnan. I worked in PCCW when I was back from Shanghai, and now I am working in Giordano, looking after dynamic training teams in HK, China, Taiwan and Singapore.

  • Molly Lui graduated in 2003 from the International Political and Economic Affairs (IPEA) Stream, which was the predecessor of the International Studies Stream.
  •   Molly and students   

    I am now teaching Government & Public Affairs, Economic and Public Affairs and Liberal Studies of the STFA Seward Woo College, a secondary school in Ho Man Tin.  I completed my Bachelor's Degree at Lingnan University in 2003, majoring in International Political and Economic Affairs (IPEA) and Political Science as my focus.  Through the study of a wide range of issues in political theories, Hong Kong politics, Chinese politics, international politics and environmental politics, I have strengthened my knowledge and improved my social and political awareness.  The cross-disciplinary training in Lingnan has enabled me to handle and to teach Liberal Studies, which will be a core subject under new senior secondary curriculum in the 2009/10 school year.  I also gained valuable experience while doing the directed research project under the guidance of our professors; they are all enthusiastic and knowledgeable.  My past research experience has definitely helped me to guide my students to conduct their Independent Enquiry Studies in the new curriculum.
