The University of Macau (UM) was founded in 1981. Its predecessor was the private University of East Asia. This higher education institution is located on the special region of Henqin. Part of Macau, it’s only accessible by crossing a tunnel. There’s a pedestrian via as well.
There are all kinds of courses: from graduate to post-graduate, longer and shorter ones. Covering several areas of knowledge, it’s very sought after by Chinese prospect students looking to study abroad and have a different experience. Local people are also welcome to study in this university. There are well-equipped dorms, as well as cafés and restaurants all across the campus. Some people enjoy riding a bike through the area.
UM’s sports facilities are also open to the public–including a football field, an athletics track, an outdoor volleyball court, two squash rooms, more than five tennis courts and more. These are highly requested and used by both university students but also official sports teams and other sports fans who search for a wider and calmer area to play.
University of Macau’s campus is very vast and easily accessible by a number of public buses–some of them doing express services to and from the Macau peninsula and Taipa.
