UM to resume postgraduate oral defences on 4 May; students at coursework stage to continue with distance learning


In accordance with the guidelines issued by the Higher Education Bureau of the Macao Special Administrative Region and considering the actual circumstances of the University of Macau (UM), the university will resume PhD and master’s oral defences on 4 May. Students of PhD, master’s, and postgraduate certificate/diploma programmes at coursework stage will continue with distance learning until the end of this semester. Master’s and PhD students who are at research stage and need to return to the campus for special reasons, such as for their laboratory work and research, should seek approval from the university in advance. UM stresses that students must not return to the campus without approval.

Starting from 6 April, PhD and master’s students at research stage may apply to the university to conduct oral defence. Upon obtaining approval, students can start conducting oral defences on 4 May. Starting from 13 April, students who have obtained the approval for conducting oral defence and are currently not in Macao may gradually return to Macao and undergo medical observation in accordance with the requirements of the Macao government. After completing the medical observation, they will need to stay in Macao to practice self-health management for 14 days, and should strictly follow all anti-epidemic policies and guidelines of the SAR government and UM before they can return to the university. Except for those who are currently residing on campus, students who have obtained the approval for conducting oral defence and are currently in Macao should stay at home to prepare for their oral defences and must not return to the campus before 4 May.

Students of PhD, master’s, and postgraduate certificate/diploma programmes at coursework stage will continue with distance learning until the end of this semester. Examinations will be postponed to the period between 20 May and 1 June. Master’s and PhD students who are at research stage and need to return to the campus for special reasons, such as for their laboratory work and research, should seek approval from the university. Duly authorised students should also strictly follow all anti-epidemic policies and guidelines of the SAR government and UM.
