Choosing to study in the Social Sciences Programme is one of the best decisions I have made. Professors do not just emphasize students’ academic development but also their personal and intellectual development. This learning experience has prepared me well for my future career path and enabled me to compete and stand out in society. Lingnan University is a land full of opportunities for people of different talents. It has everything for everyone varying from internships, scholarships, to global experiences and has thus given me the flexibility to explore myself. My experience at Lingnan University has given me numerous life lessons which have made me become a more critical thinker and a more knowledgeable and confident person.
