Our Promise

Liberal Arts Education • Transformation For Life

The workplace of the future will be dramatically different from that of today. It will no longer be sufficient for graduates to have specialised skills as many jobs will be made redundant due to the rise of artificial intelligence and other forms of automation. A liberal arts education, with its focus on critical thinking, social responsibility and the development of the whole person, will be the key to success in this world.

As the liberal arts university in Hong Kong, Lingnan University offers a unique liberal arts education, distinguished by an interdisciplinary curriculum, small classes, a vibrant full residential campus, and rich international exposure, transforms students into global citizens and helps them adapt to new realities by gaining the skills and attitudes they need to become the leaders of tomorrow.

We offer our students international exposure as part of our commitment to building a multicultural campus and global collaboration. In addition to our international faculty and student body, we are known for our overseas exchange programmes through more than 180 partner institutions in about 40 countries. Our local and overseas Service-Learning programmes nurture all-rounded individuals with a social conscience and an understanding of the world from multiple perspectives.

With all that Lingnan has to offer, it's little wonder that our reputation is growing internationally. We are ranked among the top 10 liberal arts colleges in Asia by Forbes magazine, and the number of employers who regard our graduates highly continues to grow.

Lingnan will continue to demonstrate the value of our liberal arts education, and we are determined to act on our promise "Liberal Arts Education • Transformation For Life" to prepare students for future success in a rapidly-changing world.
