The genesis of the University of Macau (UM) dates back to March 1981 when its predecessor, the private University of East Asia (UEA), was co-founded by Mr Wong King Keung, Mr Edward Woo Pak Hay, and Mr Peter Eng Yuk Lun, on a plot of land leased by the local government to Ricci Island West. The founding of UEA signified the beginning of modern higher education in Macao.

To this end, UM will focus efforts on providing quality undergraduate education, including implementing a comprehensive range of reforms, optimizing undergraduate programmes, incorporating global perspective into all undergraduate programmes, increasing general-knowledge-related courses, launching undergraduate research programmes, and setting up Honours College.
