The University of Macau (UMacau) is the flagship public university in Macao, which gives it a unique advantage when pursuing the goal of becoming a world-class university with regional characteristics. English is its working language. In recent years, the university has made great progress in various areas, gaining 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, the university relocated in August 2014 to a new campus of approximately 1.09 square kilometres. With a state-of-the-art campus, the implementation of Asia's largest residential college system, the establishment of new faculties and well-equipped laboratories, the increasing numbers of students and faculty members recruited from around the world, UMacau possesses great potential and provides exciting new possibilities for professional development.
