UM Macao Talent Program
The University of Macau (UM) has launched the UM Macao Talent Programme, in order to train more high-calibre professionals, and promote the sustainable development of postgraduate education.
- UM Macao PhD Scholarship and Post-doctoral Fellowship
Quality postgraduate education is key to achieving the goal of developing UM into an internationally recognised institution of excellence. The UM Macao PhD Scholarship programme aims to encourage the best students to pursue PhD degrees at UM, while the UM Macao Post-doctoral Fellowship programme hopes to inspire post-doctoral researchers to participate in research at UM. Both programmes will help to increase the quality of postgraduate education at UM, the international competitiveness of its postgraduate students, as well as its degree of internationalisation.
- UM Macao Distinguished Visiting Scholar
The UM Macao Distinguished Visiting Scholar programme is expected to attract top scholars from around the world, who will initiate joint research projects with UM researchers. The programme aims to increase academic exchange and collaboration between UM and the world’s top universities, which will help to further increase UM’s research capacity and international reputation.
- UM Macao Fellow
The UM Macao Fellow programme offers a three-year contract to successful applicants. The programme aims to nurture young scholars from Macao and encourage qualified local talent to pursue career development in Macao. Only permanent residents of Macao are eligible to apply for the programme. Besides engaging in research at UM, successful applicants will have the opportunity to work at reputable universities or institutions outside Macao as visiting scholars or researchers to enrich their teaching and research experience, broaden their horizons, and enhance their professional knowledge.
