University of the PhilippinesAdd to Favourites
The University of the Philippines is a network of seven universities and one autonomous college scattered across the island nation. Many of its constituent universities have more than one campus of their own.
UP Manila, in the heart of the nation’s capital, specialises in health sciences, as the successor to the Philippine Medical School, founded in 1905. Manila is one of the largest, most cosmopolitan and most frenzied cities in Asia, buzzing with nightclubs, lively restaurants and bars.
The main focuses of UP Los Baños, south east of Manila, are forestry, agriculture and environmental studies. It has a strong bioengineering and plant breeding legacy and also owns the 10,500-acre Mt. Makiling Forest Reserve.
Established in 1995, UP Open University, the distance learning leader which runs a range of online courses for home and overseas students, has three faculties, 10 learning centres and 19 testing centres on several of the Philippines’ 7000 islands.
UP is largely seen as one of the best Filipino universities in national rankings and among the top institutions in Asia. Recent improvements include academic reputation and international faculty ratio.
