Student Research Enhancement Scheme (SRES)


What is the SRES?

In line with the Strategic Plan of 2016 to 2022, one of the strategic directions is to enhance “Lingnan’s research culture and training, while advocating its scholarly achievements”. The new funding scheme entitled “Student Research Enhancement Scheme” is launched by School of Graduate Studies in January 2017 to support the research training of undergraduate (UG) and postgraduate students (both taught postgraduate (TPg) students and research postgraduate (RPg) students).


Based on the research needs, directors of research centres / research programmes could form research teams with undergraduate and/or postgraduate students. Students who are successfully matched with research project will become junior research partners and work with our faculty members for research projects. Based upon project leaders’ request, SGS could offer financial support to junior research partners.
