Universities in Macao
Founded in 1991, we are a public, multi-disciplinary, application-based institution of higher learning. Since the handover in 1999, with “knowledge, expertise, global vision” as our motto, we have adhered to the Macao SAR government’s guideline of carrying forward the integration of Chinese and Western cultural traditions.
The University of Macau (UM) was founded in 1981. Its predecessor was the private University of East Asia. Through 36 years of development, UM has become a leading university in Macao, with marked progress in teaching, research, and community service. The only public comprehensive university in Macao, UM has produced many outstanding graduates for society since its founding.
