Accessibility and equality

Our policies on Admission, Equality and Diversity, and Anti-discrimination and Harassment ensure equal access and prevent discrimination based on age, physical ability, gender, sexual orientation, economic status, ethnicity, religious affiliation, or political persuasion. Obtaining a higher education degree is important for breaking cycles of exclusion and USJ is committed to provide a diversified culture and environment to the students.

For students in our care, we provide a wide range of support measures to meet the financial, housing, academic, and counselling needs of students from underrepresented groups, as well as students with special needs .

USJ promotes equal access to education and work for people with disabilities in accordance with the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. In 2021-2022 academic year, 5% of our students originate from developing countries. Moreover, 1% of USJ employees with disabilities.

Community engagement

Our educational outreach programme for preison inmates, running since 2009, has been allowing access of incarcerated individuals to higher education, and contributing their reintegration in society.

To advocate universal sign language education and promote a disability-friendly society in Macao, USJ signed a partnership with Macau Deaf Association in 2021-2022 academic year.
