The gaining of the award is taken into consideration when staff apply for promotion in the University, particularly (though not exclusively) from Assistant Professor to Associate Professor; it is a factor in promotion.

Winners may participate in related teaching conferences with experience sharing, for example in the work of the University’s Educational Development Centre.

Winners receive a minimum of MOP 5,000 each and are encouraged to participate in the University’s research projects.

Certificates of Merit are conferred by the President of the university at the following academic year’s Opening Ceremony.

Names of the winners are placed on the University’s website and Honor Board in the University’s library.  Their names are recorded in the ‘MUST Teaching Excellence Award’ Data.
