The University of Macau is a public research university located in Macau. It is the leading tertiary institution in the city. It was founded in 1981 as the University of East Asia, 18 years before the transfer of Macau from Portugal to China. The University of Macau is the Special Administrative Region's (SAR) first modern university, and the largest university in terms of faculty size and programmes offered.Its predecessor, the University of East Asia (UEA) was a private university founded by a group of University of Hong Kong alumni, and most students were from Hong Kong, then under British rule. Prior to the transfer of sovereignty, it was acquired by the Portuguese administration and reformed as a public university following Portuguese university structure. UEA was then renamed University of Macau by Decree-Law 50/91/M in 1991.It is now the only public comprehensive university in Macau, organised into seven academic faculties and ten residential colleges. The main medium of instruction is English, while certain courses are taught in Chinese, Portuguese and Japanese.

Where to stay in Macau

Cotai Strip in Macau offers luxury hotels, with famous names providing rooms looking out over the harbor and down into the historical center. Establishments in this area also feature onsite entertainment options and Vegas-style casinos. Look for more affordable options north of Nam Van Lake, where chain and boutique hotels provide rooms with views of the city, the harbor, and across to China proper. Head farther north for lower rates offered by hostels and apartment rentals.

  • I spent a month on campus as a Fulbright scholar in Nov. 2015. Thanks for all the views to the pictures. The university is located on Hengquin Island (formerly Zhuhai) connected by a short tunnel near the Cotai strip, Macau's modern gambling area. The rest of the island has an ecological zone. I also understand a shipping port is being built on the inland side.
  • Confucius, located new campus, is a Chinese famous saint. His sculpture is single color, Eastern thought that sculpture doesn't need much of the color. He is holding a sword and he was dressed very formally. Eastern thought saints need to dress very nice that can show their prestige. His expression is very serious, that can make everyone worship him and follow his theory.
  • Art is all around us. We can use any things to complete a product. In manufacture process, it can release our pressure and present our idea. I took two photo in university of Macau faculty of design. Photo 1 style is abstractionist because we can not easy know what things on paper. The main shapes are geometry. It is painting work that make me feeling is being limited and have a hope. Because we can see the line clearly and have several colour on painting. Photo 2 is Chinese style, calligraphy is writing many word on paper. For all that every word shape have a different, we can understand easily. Because every word have a meaning. The main colour is white and black, so give me feel that seriously. Although there are great differences in the color, both through paper to express idea. Thus, colour and shape will decide a work of art style.
  • Come for 2 days conference, nice place
  • excellent university with gifted students and world class teaching group.
