The University of Macau (UM) was founded in 1981. Its predecessor was the private University of East Asia. Through 36 years of development, UM has become a leading university in Macao, with marked progress in teaching, research, and community service. The only public comprehensive university in Macao, UM has produced many outstanding graduates for society since its founding.
The UM community currently consists of more than 10,000 students. It offers more than 130 bachelor’s, master’s, PhD and other programmes, through its Faculty of Arts and Humanities, Faculty of Business Administration, Faculty of Education, Faculty of Health Sciences, Faculty of Law, Faculty of Social Sciences, Faculty of Science and Technology, Institute of Chinese Medical Sciences, Institute of Applied Physics and Materials Engineering, and Honours College. English is the main medium of instruction, with some programmes being taught in Chinese, Portuguese, or Japanese.
After completing its relocation to the new campus in 2014, UM began to reform its education system by launching a new ‘4-in-1’ model of education that consists of discipline-specific education, general education, research and internship education, and community and peer education. The purpose of implementing this education model is to provide a multifaceted education to help students cultivate self-knowledge and self-confidence, so that they will possess both ‘great knowledge’ and ‘great character’.
UM adopts a governance and management system in line with international standards and practices. It internationally recruits outstanding scholars to create a multilingual and multicultural learning environment for students. UM has a faculty team comprised of nearly 600 people, and many of them hold a PhD degree awarded by renowned universities. In recent years UM has stepped up efforts in recruiting senior-level faculty members in an attempt to continuously enhance its teaching and research.
