Residential College System in UM
Missions of UM RC system:
UM adopts a holistic education system based on the residential college (RC) system and uses the RC system as a platform for integrating four types of education of UM’s ‘4-in-1’ model. This is unique among universities in Macao. As a complement to the faculty-based system, RCs serve as a vehicle for whole-person education through the systematic planning of experiential learning programmes, with the aim of nurturing students who are successful in their studies and of high moral character.
Students from different academic disciplines live together in the RCs, creating a stimulating learning environment in which they learn from each other, broaden their intellectual horizons, and communicate and work with people of different backgrounds and cultures. Such experiences would prepare the students to set sail in the world of globalisation upon graduation. A dedicated team of RC’s resident and non-resident fellows offer academic support by conducting non-credit-bearing tutorials in disciplinary studies, general education, and academic language skills. Students are not only the participants but also organizers and facilitators of activities who are expected to learn in the process of activity preparation and planning.
There are currently ten RCs at UM, namely Cheong Kun Lun College, Chao Kuang Piu College, Choi Kai Yau College, Cheng Yu Tung College, Henry Fok Pearl Jubilee College, Lui Che Woo College, Ma Man Kei and Lo Pak Sam College, Moon Chun Memorial College, Shiu Pong College, and Stanley Ho East Asia College. Each RC is home to around 700 students with about 500 students in residence.
