The University of Macau Story

First established in 1981 as the University of East Asia, the University of Macau (UMacau) is the leading – and largest – tertiary institution in the city. The University was renamed in 1991 and became public, making it the only public comprehensive university in the special administrative region.

In 2007, UMacau launched a ten-year strategic plan for its future development to address issues such as the workforce shortage in Macau and the university’s role in strengthening the city’s regional academic position.

The unique legacy of Macau as a Portuguese colony with strong international ties has been maintained as a key to the uniqueness of both the University and the city.
