The University of Macau’s residential college (RC) system is modelled upon successful experience of world-class universities, including University of Cambridge, University of Oxford, Harvard University, Yale University, Princeton University, and The Chinese University of Hong Kong.
Eight residential colleges (RCs) became operational with the move to the new campus in 2014/2015 academic year, namely Chao Kuang Piu College, Cheng Yu Tung College, Choi Kai Yau College, Henry Fok Pearl Jubilee College, Lui Che Woo College, Moon Chun Memorial College, Shiu Pong College, and Stanley Ho East Asia College. Two new RCs, Cheong Kun Lun College, Ma Man Kei and Lo Pak Sam College started in 2016/2017 academic year. Several new Residential Colleges are to be established in the coming years.
A perfect complement to a faculty-based system, the RC system is a vehicle for whole-person education and for helping undergraduates become well-rounded future leaders. Through a curriculum-based approach, RCs offer experiential residential learning to help students acquire soft skills beyond their chosen fields of study.
We aim to produce well-rounded graduates who are intellectually and socially accomplished, and whose self-directed, life-long learning skills equip them to meet the varied and complex challenges of today’s and tomorrow’s world.
