Remarks: under our Bachelor of Arts in Portuguese Studies programme, students will join the study abroad programme in Portugal/Brazil in the third year for 2 semesters. As there will be a limit for students using the courses they have done during the study abroad/exchange programme to apply for the course exemption of courses at University of Macau, students who have decided to join the study abroad programme to BFSU for the first year will not affect their study abroad programme to Portugal/Brazil in the third year, but it will be limited to the second semester only.
