Signing MOU with Hong Kong Sports Institute to foster dual career pathways for elite athletes
On 2 November, Lingnan University and the Hong Kong Sports Institute (HKSI) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to further boost the substantial support to full-time elite athletes in facilitating their planning on dual career development both in sports and in academics.
Under the MOU, the HKSI may nominate full-time elite scholarship athletes to enroll in the academic programmes at Lingnan University including undergraduate degree and postgraduate programmes as well as higher diploma and associate degree programmes at Lingnan Institute of Further Education (LIFE). To accommodate intensive trainings and competition schedules of athlete students, the University provides flexibility in curriculum delivery, empowering them to attend full-time trainings as well as local and overseas competitions. Individualised mentor support on both academic advice and career planning will also be available for each admitted elite athlete.
