Macau University of Science and Technology achieves institutional accreditation

Date: October 31 - 2022

Macau University of Science and Technology (MUST) has successfully completed institutional accreditation, carried out by QAA on behalf of the Macao Bureau for Education and Youth Development (DSEDJ).

The review took place online between 21 February and 1 March 2022 and was carried out by a team of five reviewers, appointed by QAA. The review confirmed that MUST successfully meets all of the accreditation standards for Macao, set by DSEDJ.

The review team also identified a number of items of good practice including:

  • the Comfort Head Fellowship Program, which has significant potential to raise awareness of, and to prevent, student mental health issues
  • the comprehensive nature and multifunctionality of the WeMUST platform allows ready access to a wide range of functions.

Joseph H W Lee, the MUST President, appreciated the QAA Panel’s review work and said: 'M.U.S.T. is pleased to be the first university in Macao to receive Institutional Accreditation (IA), against the DSEDJ accreditation standards by the UK Quality Assurance Agency. The external review by international experts has been most helpful to the continuous improvement of educational quality and innovations of our endeavours.' 

Vicki Stott, QAA’s Chief Executive said: 'This is an excellent result for Macau University of Science and Technology, reflecting the robustness of their quality assurance arrangements for protecting the student academic experience. QAA is delighted to work alongside the Macao Bureau of Education and Youth Development as a trusted external quality assurance agency for institutional accreditation activity.'
