Welcome from the Rector
Welcome to the Honours College
Dear Prospective Students,
I am delighted that you are interested in learning more about the first Honours College established in Macao. At the Honours College of the University of Macau, we assure that outstanding undergraduates receive the benefit of academic attention in greater depth and of higher intellectual intensity in order for them to become globally competitive leaders and intellectual achievers committed to collaborative and creative thinking. The Honour College fully endorses that goal by merging intellectual rigour with global horizons, research, community outreach and leadership. We motivate the highly capable and inquisitive-minded students to be excited in the pursuit of knowledge and wisdom throughout their undergraduate education.
The Honours College aims to bring together honours students from all disciplines into an academically challenging environment. We will mentor qualified students to participate in new research through our funded undergraduate research program and will intensify their interaction with faculty members so that they can be well-equipped for graduate study. Students who are accepted into the Honours College will also gain a vibrant chance to be exposed to international prospective by studying in another country for a semester through our funded study-abroad program. Upon completion of all course requirements of the Honours College, these honours students will receive special recognition at congregation and an Honours College diploma.
With the support of outstanding faculty and staff members devoted to enhancing your honours experience, please take every action to seize this great opportunity at the University of Macau. Be sure to check out our newest programmes and become part of our honours community, which will commence in the academic year of 2009/2010.
