Macao Universities Start to Enroll Mainland StudentsSome 100 high school graduates from north China's Tianjin Municipality, along with 2,000 students from 13 other mainland provinces, cities and autonomous regions will become the first group of mainland students receiving university education in four Macao-based universities in this autumn semester.
The four forerunner universities are the University of Macao, Macao Polytechnic Institute, Macao Institute for Tourism Studies and Macao University of Science and Technology.
Zhou Yu, a Tianjin-based student newly admitted by the Finance Department of the University of Macao, considered the upcoming education tour to the Macao Special Administrative Region (SAR) as one of the most important opportunities in his life.
Zhou said, "The high quality university education in Macao SAR will greatly help me to develop various capabilities catering to future career demands."
Sources said that the annual tuition of these Macao universities ranges from 20,000 to 40,000 yuan (some US$2,450 to US$4,900). All the families of the admitted students said that money will not be a problem.
"After Macao returned to the motherland, economic and social environment there is quite satisfactory. I am happy to send my son there to study," said the mother of Yang Yuan, a student admitted by the Macao University of Science and Technology.
