Reviews of University of Saint Joseph, Macau, Macau
Courses offered in University of Saint Joseph, Macau, Macau
“It's a very diverse field, so we are able to study various related disciplines such as art, history, engineering, and almost anything that has to do with people and their living environments. The architecture programme is also a lot of fun, as it encourages creativity and experimentation. Unlike other programmes, where you mostly read and write all the time, for many architecture assignments you are required to build scale models, draw sketches, present projects and develop various skills and ideas. Even though the work we do is challenging, the program is enjoyable and gives a sense of achievement with every finished project.”

About University of Saint Joseph, Macau, Macau (Summary, Fees, Scholarship, Campus Life, etc.)
The University of Saint Joseph (USJ) represents Catholic education at its highest, university level. Our university inherits the longstanding tradition of Catholic humanistic education in Macao, which extended beyond the confines of China to all East and South-East Asia, and the islands of Oceania.
Using English as a medium and teaching Chinese and Portuguese as languages to be known by all, USJ sets the stage for its international staff and multinational student-body. In our academy, East and West carry on the centuries-old dialogue through which Macao acquired its unique identity.
Close links to the Catholic University of Portugal and to Catholic universities in Angola, Brazil and Mozambique, set us in the privileged position of being able to contribute to Macao’s present calling as a bridge between Portuguese-speaking countries.
Our study programmes provide students with the essentials of their major field of knowledge, but include modules to broaden their outlook on the world and stimulate creative thinking. We care for the competence of our graduates in their future professions, but our privilege and mission is to introduce them to a university environment where they learn to analyse, question, evaluate and decide in the context of consciously assimilated values and culture.
We are committed to improving the quality of our academic life in the light of suggestions from staff, students and society, to better serve higher education in Asia and Macao.
