The programme aims to provide, from a comparative perspective, a systematic overview of the different schools of thought of the great thinkers in ancient China, in order to help non-Chinese audience understand ancient Chinese mindset and worldview.

Established in 2017, the Chinese-Portuguese Bilingual Teaching and Training Centre is dedicated to developing partnerships with other institutions both in and outside Macao in order to promote Portuguese language education, teacher training, and the study of Chinese and Portuguese cultures.
