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.
