Thanks to the support from many professors at Lingnan University, seats are reserved for Sit-in Programme participants in undergraduate courses. The Sit-in Programme will be launched in the first and second semesters, with each subject lasting for one semester (around 12 weeks). The elderly enrolled in the Sit-in Program will have lessons together with the university students and have access to university library. No examination is required and a Certificate of Attendance will be presented to the Sit-in Programme participants with over 80% attendance.

The NT West Elder Academies Cluster was established in 2011 to co-ordinate the operation and curriculum development of the elder academy in the western New Territories. It was encouraging that the number of elders joining the network has increased from 10 elder schools to 51. In order to enable the elderly to exert their role of "active ageing", the NT West Elder Academies Cluster provides diversified learning activities such as visits, seminars, camps to the Elderly, in which the Elderly can enjoy and enrich their learning experience and personal sociality.
