The University of Macau (UMacau) is the flagship public university in Macao, which gives it a unique advantage in pursuing the goal of becoming a world-class university with regional characteristics. English is its working language. In recent years, UMacau has made significant progress and has gained increasing international recognition for its teaching, research, and community service. To better support higher education development in Macao and to meet society’s ever-increasing demand for high-quality professionals, UMacau in 2014 relocated to a new campus that is 20 times the size of the old one. The large campus, the implementation of Asia’s largest residential college system, the unique ‘4-in-1’ education model combine to provide a multifaceted education to students to help them achieve well-rounded development. In addition to adopting a governance and management system in line with international standards and practices, UMacau internationally recruits outstanding scholars to create a multilingual and multicultural learning environment for students. With these new developments and initiatives, UMacau is faced with unprecedented opportunities and provides exciting new possibilities for professional development.
