International relations and exchange opportunities
With our students and staff coming from 50 different countries, a multicultural and international experience is pursued and celebrated at the University of Saint Joseph (USJ)!
With the help of our partners, we offer exchange opportunities for all USJ degree programme students. While complimenting their studies, the exchange and summer programmes PIRO facilitates simultaneously allow students the opportunity to enhance their academic and language abilities, as well as develop their confidence, networking and interpersonal skills. Students are able to enjoy different components of academic life while exploring different destinations, meeting new people and cultures, and facing a different educational system while broadening horizons in a unique and memorable way!

Incoming Exchange Students
Every semester, we also receive Incoming Exchange Students from countries like Portugal, Brazil, Indonesia, and Italy, so you will also have a chance to learn about different cultures and traditions right here in USJ! We hold several activities for the exchange students’ smooth integration in USJ and Macao so feel free to join us whenever you see an event coming up.
USJ International Cultural Fair & Languages Day
Annually, with the support of the Faculty of Humanities and the Macao Foundation, we organise the USJ International Cultural Fair & Languages Day (ICFLD). Its main objective is the sharing of cultures and learning about the features that characterise us and make us unique. Typical songs and dances, cultural booths, traditional snacks and beverages and an International Parade are some of the things you can expect in the event! To watch the highlights of the USJ ICFLD 2019, visit https://youtu.be/_L1RWFVGlQU. This year’s edition will be held on April 24th so make sure to save the date!
