Employers' Testimonials

“Asia Financial and Asia Insurance – one of Hong Kong’s leading general insurance companies – need people who can learn, think for themselves, ask the right questions and communicate well with colleagues and clients. Over the years several dozen Lingnan graduates have joined our insurance underwriting, claims and reinsurance teams and our investment department. One is now a senior vice president, and of the 20 who have joined since 2009, three have already been promoted to assistant manager. We hope to welcome more staff with the Lingnan liberal arts background in the future.”

Community Partners’ Testimonials

“Lingnan University is one of the important partners of Tuen Mun Healthy City Limited. We have jointly organised and participated in a number of activities aiming to promote health knowledge. One of the key activities is the “Think-Act-Contribute” promotional campaign through which the students, the elderly and the whole community can learn more about health knowledge. We hope to bring the awareness of keeping ourselves healthy to the community by creating a “TAC Funky Dance” which encourage people to exercise with joy. Lingnan University and its students also helped and participated in several other activities organised by Tuen Mun Healthy City Limited, including “Tuen Mun Beach Festival” and “Walking 8000 Steps”. Lingnan students are committed to serving the community and promoting health knowledge. They have positive attitudes and live a wonderful university life.”

“Lingnan students are very smart and willing to learn new things. From my experience of working with them, they can learn fast and provide us with many new ideas and suggestions for improvement. I am so impressed by their hard-working attitude, innovative mindset and team work. Service-Learning is so successful in Lingnan. Congratulations!”

“While serving at the booths of Service Learning with the theme of “age-friendly community”, Lingnan students have employed creative and diversified approach to make the theme more interesting and lively. As a result, the elderly who participated in the activities had a deep impression about the concept of age-friendly community, learned a lot of practical information and brought home with special souvenirs. During the planning process, the students actively sought advice from teachers, staff of the SWD and the Office of Service Learning to make sure the project serve the needs of the elderly. I was greatly impressed by the students’ thoughtful arrangement, such as providing activities to the elderly during the waiting time, and using visual effects instead of words for easier understanding. I also appreciate their respect and understanding towards the elderly.”

“We had young student interns from Lingnan University year after year. We found that they are energetic, motivated and have excellent skills. Service-Learning is a new form of learning and teaching that all universities are trying to incorporate. Lingnan University has been a pioneer in this area. We look forward to seeing the fruitful results of Lingnan’s Service-Learning, and hope that Lingnan will build an even stronger and more effective partnership network in the next decade.”
