About Lingnan Institute of Further Education

Lingnan Institute of Further Education was established in 2001. LIFE strives for further enhancement on four salient areas in its future development plan and they are: Student Learning, Quality Assurance, Programme Development, and Staff Development.

Student learning is always top priority; putting students at the heart of the learning process, is LIFE's central mission. By adopting the student-centred approach, LIFE is committed to providing all-round education to students and caring about the whole-person development of our students which is characterized by innovativeness in teaching and learning.

With headquarters situated in Lingnan University, LIFE aims for betterment to cultivate a fascinating learning environment by offering a university campus and well-equipped downtown education centres which provide full access to all brand-new learning facilities and amenities. The learning environment at our education centres will be further enhanced by furnishing with extra educational hardware which is known as the necessary vehicle for moving students to high gear in their intellectual development.
