LU graduates and postgraduates come together to discuss their time at the University
The 53rd Congregation of Lingnan University was held on 24 Nov 2022, and graduates and postgraduates came together to talk about their time at LU. The total number of TPg graduates in the 2021-2022 academic year was 1,350, including four graduates from the Doctor of Policy Studies programme. There were 25 RPg graduates, consisting of 11 MPhil and 14 PhD graduates. Here’s what they said about their experiences at Lingnan.
Since 2012, I have served as a Kwun Tong District Council member. Now, I am also a member of the Legislative Council representing the Kowloon East constituency, and I am the DAB’s spokesperson for policies relating to manpower. Because of this, I focus on the education and labour issues of Hong Kong as a whole, as well as Kowloon East district issues.
The Doctor of Policy Studies at Lingnan University is the only professional doctorate in policy studies available in Greater China. The whole programme aims to intensify academic research on livelihood issues, including education, healthcare, housing, labour, and youth development. The wide range of research areas helps me focus more on livelihood issues. At the same time, I can analyse policy from a multi-angle perspective before advocating the formation or implementation of policies.
The experiential learning style that Lingnan offered is enjoyable, and I am happy to recommend the Programme to others so they can experience what it has to offer.
I want to thank the School of Graduate Studies for offering the CRS Programme, as it gave me the opportunity to learn how to solve issues through critical thinking. I made a lot of new friends through the CRS Programme, and I have fond memories of it.
Thank you, Lingnan University and the CRS Programme, for providing me with the opportunity to study in Hong Kong. It has been a very fruitful year of studies, and I gained valuable insights into policy development in the the Greater Bay Area. I also deepened my knowledge of international and East Asian politics.
I have gained a lot of experience in SEIM this year. I have learned how to manage innovation from the perspective of entrepreneurs, find the essence of problems through practice, and learned how to solve problems encountered in enterprise management. I want to thank the professors for their careful teaching!
