Service for Non-local Degree-seeking
In order to help non-local
undergraduate students adapt to new living and learning environment, SSC organizes special programmes in fostering
their successful adaptation to the new university environment and living in Hong Kong. Our programmes, supported by Counsellors, encourage International and Mainland
undergraduate students to have close relationship with local students, and establish their own personal network thus maximize their exposure in Hong Kong.
Orientation and Support
A good support network helps new non-local undergraduate students adapt to the new environment faster. SSC co-operates with
Mainland undergraduate student association and some senior
international undergraduate students for providing pre-arrival enquiry service, pick up service and organizing tailor-made orientation activities for new non-local
undergraduate students. All of them are also invited to join the New Student Orientation (NSO) and enjoy the full range of student services and programmes as local students.
SSC organizes sharing sessions, Christmas party and farewell parties with the non-local
undergraduate students to build up a better relationship with them, and know more about their lives in Lingnan, their needs and concerns.
Lingnan Host Family Scheme
Lingnan Host Family Scheme is a supportive programme for non-local
undergraduate students. Each participating Lingnan staff will take care of one to two non-local
undergraduate students. By participating in this programme, they can get support, care and advice from the ˇ§Host Familiesˇ¨. It also provides an opportunity for
them to experience the life and culture in Hong Kong.
University-wide Cultural Events
To promote cultural diversity on campus, SSC co-operates with different units organize various university-wide cultural events, such as Chinese New Year Carnival,
Thanksgiving Dinner and International Day to enrich studentsˇ¦ cultural exposure exchange on campus.
