Lingnan Institute of Further Education (LIFE) has always been committed to providing high-quality sub-degree programmes for students. LIFE engages with secondary schools across Hong Kong to understand students' various needs in the ever-changing environment. To expand support for secondary school students, LIFE has signed a Collaboration Scheme with The Association of Hong Kong Chinese Middle Schools (AHKCMS), which includes the following 5 major items:

Students from member schools of AHKCMS will be able to:
  • Enjoy priority participation in LIFE’s Secondary School Engagement activities, such as articulation talks, thematic workshops, taster programmes, and campus tours.
  • Enjoy a waiver of application fees for LIFE sub-degree programmes, including Associate Degree, Higher Diploma, and Diploma programmes (Waiver code: AHKCMS2425).
  • Receive a Conditional Offer before the release of the HKDSE results.
  • Receive a LIFE Entrance Scholarship with designated HKDSE results.
  • Be admitted to LIFE programmes through the "Principal Recommendation" with outstanding performance in particular aspects.
Besides rewarding students who excel academically, LIFE hopes to encourage students who perform well in other non-academic areas to continue their studies, explore and develop their potential, and cultivate outstanding talents for society through this collaboration programme.

LIFE reserves a total of 10 Principal Recommendation places for member schools of AHKCMS. LIFE invites member schools to recommend talented students to participate in the "Principal Recommendation" programme. Students should fill in the application form and email it to by 31 May 2024.
