In accordance with the guidelines issued by the Higher Education Bureau of the Macao Special Administrative Region (hereinafter referred to as the SAR) and considering the actual circumstances of the University of Macau (UM), the University has decided that bachelor’s students graduating this academic year will resume classes on 20 April and that bachelor’s students not graduating this academic year will continue distance learning until the end of this semester. For such purposes, UM has made the following arrangements for teaching and learning:

 

1. Bachelor’s Students Graduating This Academic Year

1.1. Class Resumption

• Students graduating this academic year will resume classes on 20 April.

• The courses to be resumed will be those for the 4th year and 5th year. The list of the aforesaid courses can be found on the Registry webpage.

• During the class resumption period, classes will be conducted in the form of traditional face-to-face instruction blended with distance teaching. The traditional face-to-face teaching will mainly include group discussions, revision or recapping of the teaching contents. Teachers will directly notify students of the details of class arrangements.

• Students who cannot return to the University for class resumption on the aforesaid date due to special situations (e.g. the epidemic affecting border crossing or travel) may continue distance learning until the end of this semester.

 

1.2. Returning to the Campus and Residential Colleges (RCs)

• Non-RC Residents

- Students who are currently in Macao should avoid going out or travelling between Macao and other regions. They should stay at home to prepare for class resumption and must not return to the campus before class resumption.

- Starting from 30 March, students who are currently not in Macao may gradually return to the SAR and undergo medical observation according to the requirements of the SAR. After completing the medical observation, they will need to stay in Macao to practice self-health management for 14 days, and should follow strictly all other anti-epidemic policies and guidelines of the SAR government and UM before they can return to the University and attend classes.

 

• RC Residents

- RC residents who are currently in Macao should avoid going out or travelling between Macao and other regions. They should stay at home to prepare for class resumption and must not return to the campus or the RCs before the classes resume, except for those currently staying in the RCs.

- Starting from 30 March, RC residents who are currently not in Macao may gradually return to the SAR and undergo medical observation as required by the SAR. After completing the medical observation, they can return to the RCs and practice self-health management there for 14 days according to the UM requirements. Meanwhile, they should follow strictly all other anti-epidemic policies and guidelines of the SAR government and UM.

 

• All RC residents should notify their RCs of their RC-return dates in advance. They must complete the Personal Health Declaration before entering the RCs, and follow strictly all other anti-epidemic policies and guidelines of the SAR government and UM.

1.3. Exams
• Exams will be postponed to the period between 20 May and 1 June.

• 5 May will be the application deadline.

1.5. Withdrawal from Individual Courses
