Special direct admission to UM’s undergraduate programmes opens for applications now

As the only public comprehensive university in Macao, the University of Macau (UM) has the responsibility of nurturing local talent. Starting today (10 July), UM will accept undergraduate applications for the 2020/2021 academic year from students whose studies have been affected by the novel coronavirus pandemic, including secondary school graduates who originally planned to pursue further education abroad as well as students from Macao who are currently enrolled in bachelor’s degree programmes at non-local universities but wish to continue their studies in Macao. The deadline for applications is 17 July.

In addition to fulfilling the requirements for the university’s Direct Admission programme, applicants must also be Macao identity card holders and meet either of the following conditions: 1) Class of 2020 secondary school graduates who originally planned to study abroad, or 2) Students from Macao who are currently enrolled in bachelor’s degree programmes at non-local universities (including those located in mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and overseas countries).
