Rector’s Message

Welcome to the University of Macau!

The University of Macau (UM) is an international comprehensive university. Since her establishment in 1981, UM has been dedicated to providing a multifaceted education through our educational model and residential college system and in accordance with the university motto: Humanity, Integrity, Propriety, Wisdom and Sincerity.

In recent years, UM has been taking initiatives for a comprehensive and structural reform and entered a new era of unprecedented growth. We are pleased to see that our progress is being recognized globally as listed in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings and through our growing partnership with top academic institutions both at home and abroad. Locally, UM is the first institution to be awarded the Medal of Merit-Education by the Macao SAR government in recognition of the efforts and contributions of the university staff and students. We are confident that the rising reputation of UM will enable us to scale new heights in the international academic circles.

On behalf of UM, I would like to invite you to browse our website to get a better sense of our academic programmes and latest development. Also, I would like to welcome you to visit our gorgeous campus where you can see our strengths and advantages, interact with us and experience the uniqueness of the UM community.
