Starting from September, the University of Saint Joseph (USJ) will enroll thirty students from the People’s Republic of China, adding to the four that were already integrated in the second semester last year. The students, who completed their academic path at the University in May, were left without a graduation ceremony due to the latest, long-lasting Covid-19 outbreak.
Scholarships are to be awarded to academically-deserving inmates through the University of St Joseph’s Prison Outreach Program. This advancement in the program will benefit previously disadvantaged prisoners, giving them access to a better education and, consequently, a better life.
The University of Saint Joseph is celebrating its 25th anniversary and it was rewarded by the Central Government with a long awaited accolade. The higher education institution was authorized by the Chinese Education Ministry to recruit Mainland students, albeit on a trial basis. The University will be able to enroll students from the People’s Republic of China in postgraduate programs in Architecture, Business Administration, Information Systems and Science, Stephan Morgan announced earlier this week.
The University of Saint Joseph will officially kick off the new academic year next Tuesday with a Mass, celebrated by Bishop Stephen Lee. The higher education institution led by Stephen Morgan has recently signed a memorandum of understanding with the Macau Youth Greater Bay Area Development Association.
