Study and Course Registration (Undergraduate Students)

Course Registration 

Non-local undergraduate students shall register courses on (1) Registration Day (i.e. 23 August 2022 for senior new students, or 24 August 2022 for Year 1 new students); (2) during add/drop period (i.e. 29 August - 7 September 2022) after consultation with the academic advisers (students will get the information of their advisers via the Online Reporting System in mid-August).

Students are required to meet in person with their academic adviser at least once a term for approving their study plan before the registration exercise. Otherwise, their access to the registration system will be denied. Flexibility is allowed when students are not in Hong Kong or under special circumstances and therefore unable to meet with their academic adviser in person. The students may seek advice from their academic adviser through other means. Students should input and save their study plan in DegreeWorks for their academic adviser’s approval (see the details HERE) before meeting with their academic adviser. Please refer to the orientation schedule or contact the faculties/departments directly for more details of student advising after completing the Online Reporting in mid-August.

Service-Learning (S-L) is a pedagogy that combines academic study with meaningful community service and continuous reflection. Active community service and global learning opportunities are two main focuses of Liberal arts education at Lingnan University.  Apart from providing research opportunities in S-L projects, innovation and entrepreneurship are important component in S-L. Students will integrate creative problem-solving methods (like Design Thinking) in planning S-L projects, making a positive impact on local and international communities and greatly benefitting students’ personal growth and future career development.


Being recognized as a key element of liberal arts education, S-L has become a graduation requirement for all first-year undergraduate students joining Lingnan from 2016-2017 onwards. All students complete a service project of at least 30 hours (including preparatory service training) in conjunction with an academic course that has S-L elements offered by academic departments and/or the Office of Service-Learning, or approved courses offered by overseas institutions.
