Judite Nascimento, rector of the University of Cape Verde, recently visited the University of Macau (UM) and was warmly received by UM Rector Wei Zhao and Vice Rector Rui Martins. Both parties had an in-depth discussion on how to increase collaboration between the two universities. Nascimento said that UM is the bridge between UM and Portuguese-speaking countries in the training of professionals in various fields, adding that he hopes the two universities will continue to increase collaboration in education in Chinese and Portuguese languages and cultures.

During the meeting, Martins told the guests about UM’s educational philosophy, latest developments, and plans for the future. He said that UM vigorously promotes collaboration and exchange with overseas universities in order to broaden students’ horizons. Nascimento said that in recent years the University of Cape Verde has actively initiated research on Chinese culture. For example, the university recently launched a Confucius Institute to promote courses in the Chinese language and culture. Nascimento added that as an important bridge for collaboration between universities in Macao and Portuguese-speaking countries, UM has a rich cultural heritage and provides a very good language learning environment. Therefore, he hopes the two universities will further increase collaboration in summer exchange programmes, in particular in the Chinese language and culture, as well as exchange visits for faculty members and students.


佛得角大學(University of Cape Verde)校長Judite Nascimento參訪澳門大學,獲澳大校長趙偉、副校長馬許願接待,雙方就未來加強兩校合作與聯繫的議題上進行深入探討。Nascimento考察澳大的教學環境後表示,澳大是澳門和葡萄牙語國家之間人才培養的橋樑,期望今後兩校在中葡語言文化教育方面加強交流合作。

會上,馬許願向佛得角大學代表介紹澳大教學理念、規劃與發展,並指出澳大不斷擴大國際交流與合作,深化學生國際視野。Nascimento表示,佛得角大學最近開辦孔子學院,積極開展對中國文化的研究,而澳大作為澳門和葡語系國家高校合作的重要橋樑之一,既有深厚的中葡文化底蘊,亦致力營造良好的學習語言環境,因此期望進一步開拓兩校新的合作領域,如中國語言文化的暑期交換生計劃、兩校學生學者互訪等。

其後,Nascimento參觀澳大校園,並與來自佛得角的海外學生進行交流和對話,瞭解其在澳大學習語言和文化的情況。Nascimento感謝澳大校長趙偉向佛得角大學贈送93本由澳大出版的書籍,共同促進兩校的教學發展。

澳大於2015年在葡萄牙語大學聯會第25屆會議上與佛得角高等教育、科學和創新部高等教育司簽訂了合作協議,以推動雙方的學術合作,特別是中葡雙語人才培養。
