I was honoured and lucky to join LIFE.  It was a very special school life experience for me. This 1-year programme allowed me to start my career earlier.  Face to face teaching in Hong Kong by lecturers from University of Stirling was so great because it made us know more about UK learning mode.
Mr. Ian Lee
Graduate of Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Management 2017


Thanks to LIFE’s 2+1 Articulation Pathway, I was able to secure my seat in the Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Management programme offered by the University of Stirling in collaboration with LIFE after I had completed the Higher Diploma in Hospitality (Hotel Operation). The programme was quite condensed and I had to make great efforts to cope with the curriculum. Fortunately, studying at the Lingnan University main campus made it easier for me to adapt. Also, I could enjoy the learning facilities and amenities..
