Registration for Direct Admission to bachelor’s degree programmes to open tomorrow

Registration for direct admission to bachelor’s degree programmes will open from 23 July to 26 July

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread across the world, with ‘epidemic rebound’ occurring in a number of countries and regions, the University of Macau (UM) will accept applications from affected students for Direct Admission to bachelor’s degree programmes for the 2021/2022 academic year, taking into account the need of some fresh high school graduates who wish to study at overseas universities as well as the need of local students enrolled in bachelor’s degree programmes of non-local universities to stay in Macao for further studies. Applicants must meet the requirements for Direct Admission. The registration period is from 23 July to 26 July (6:00 pm).

Students who fall into either of the following categories are eligible to apply: 1) fresh high school graduates with a valid Macao ID card; or 2) students with a valid Macao ID card who are currently enrolled in a bachelor’s degree programme of a non-local university. Applicants who meet the above requirement and possess one of the academic qualifications listed in the table below may apply through the online registration system:
