Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all

First generation students

Obtaining a higher education degree is important for breaking cycles of exclusion. In 2021-2022 academic year, about 26% of our enrolled students reported they were the first in their immediate families to enrol in university.

Teacher training

USJ invests greatly in the training of the next generation of teachers. In 2021-2022 academic year, more than 65% of our graduates obtained teaching qualifications, and over 29% of graduates obtained primary school teaching qualifications.

Lifelong learning

To support the integration of learning throughout life, USJ offers a variety of services and activities targeting the wider community. Our policy, is that all services and activities be accessible to all, regardless of age, ethnicity, religion, disability, or gender. Our educational outreach programme for prison inmates, running since 2009, provides incarcerated individuals with access to higher education and contributes to their eventual reintegration in society.

The University Library is open to the
community, welcoming readers even if they are not students or members of the staff. For the community’s continued learning, USJ provides public events, vocational training programmes, and education outreach activities.

Governmental collaboration

In order to promote the integrated development of education in Macao, our Vice-Rector Zhang Shugang and University Administrator Alejandro Salcedo Garcia are members of the Talents Development Committee of the Macao SAR Government.
