The University of Macau (UM) recently held the Principals’ Recommended Admission Talk 2016/2017, to provide information about the university’s latest developments, bachelor’s degree programmes, international exchange opportunities, and career prospects to graduating students from local high schools and their parents and teachers. 500 people attended the event, which featured a presentation by Rector Wei Zhao and a consultation session where representatives from all the faculties, residential colleges, the Honours College, and the Registry answered students’ questions about admission and academic programmes.
Rector Wei Zhao said in his presentation that UM considers it its mission to educate youth for the 21st century and to help students discover themselves and develop personal competencies through university education so they can achieve their goals and make their dreams come true after graduation. To this end, UM has implemented a ‘4-in-1’ education model, in order to provide students with a multifaceted education both inside and outside the classroom. Rector Zhao believes that with the well-equipped new campus and the excellent learning environment, students will enjoy their university years at UM. Rector Zhao’s presentation was followed by a consultation session where representatives from all the faculties, residential colleges, the Honours College, and the Registry answered students’ questions about admission and academic programmes.
Participating students also visited the classrooms, laboratories, and other teaching facilities in the various faculty buildings, including the Trading Room, the Creative Media Lab, the Moot Court, and the Black-Box Theatre. Guided tours of the facilities and presentations by UM professors and senior students along the way greatly increased the students’ understanding of and interest in UM’s academic programmes. The eight residential colleges also opened to participants in the admission talk, to help them learn more about the facilities of the colleges. Some of the visitors stayed for dinner in the college canteens.
The Principals’ Recommended Admission Scheme aims to recruit outstanding local students who possess excellent academic performance and positive character traits, as well as students with special talents who are actively involved in community service. All students admitted through the Principals’ Recommended Admission Scheme will be awarded the University of Macau Lotus Scholarship.
