in Kowloon Commerce Centre
create dreams for U”. This slogan expresses fully the determination and
commitment of Li Ka Shing Institute of Professional and Continuing Education
(LiPACE) in serving students to realise their dreams and ambitions.
Guided by the Open University of Hong Kong’s motto “Education for all”, LiPACE
sets its mission as promoting lifelong learning and has strived to provide
learners with quality and flexible full-time and part-time programmes in a wide
variety of disciplines. To offer students a better learning environment
alongside its continuous development, LiPACE with great supports by the
University will relocate its headquarters and set up a brand new Learning Centre
at Kwai Hing in September 2013.
The new Kwai Hing Learning Centre
is located conveniently at floors 8 – 12 of Kowloon Commerce Centre, just 2
minutes’ walk from Kwai Hing MTR Station. With a gross area of over 124,300 sq.
ft. (about 25,000 sq. ft. per floor), the new Centre will be able to accommodate
1,500 persons and provide spacious study environment to students. It comprises
not only fully-equipped classrooms, PC and languages laboratories, lecture
theatre and learning resources centre, but also several purpose-built
teaching/learning facilities (such as design studio, mock-up classrooms of
cabin, hotel room, hospital ward and radio broadcasting studio etc.) aiming to
enrich students’ learning experiences.
Once the new Learning Centre is in use,
programmes/courses currently offered at the Island Learning Centre (Sheung Wan)
will be arranged to the Amway Chinese Arts and Learning Centre (located at
Rumsey Street, Sheung Wan) and the brand new Kwai Hing Learning Centre. Through
operating the new Kwai Hing Learning Centre together with the OUHK-CITA Learning
Centre (next to Lai King MTR Station) and Kowloon Bay Learning Centre, the
Institute looks forward to providing the public with an even better learning
environment and experience.
