Philippine Universities

According to statistics from the Commission of Higher Learning (CHED), there are over two thousand Philippine universities and colleges as of October 2008. About a hundred and twenty of them are state-owned.

The colleges and universities in the Philippines are classified into either state universities and colleges (SUCs), which are subsidized by the national government, local universities and colleges (LUCs), which are supported by the local government, private universities and colleges, CHED supervised Institutions (CSI), and other government schools (OGS). There are also special higher education institutions (HEIs) providing specialized training in areas such as military science and national defense.

The WWW.ILINK.PH portal provides Philippine university listings and presents them in a visual manner. You can find state universities, Christian and other private universities in Manila, Cebu and all over the Philippines.
In the 2008 QS (Quacquarelli Symonds) World University survey, four Philippine universities made it to the list of Top 500 universities in the world. These are the University of the Philippines in Diliman (UP), Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU), De LaSalle University (DLSU), and University of Santo Tomas (UST).
Many students from other countries in Asia such as Korea are studying in several universities in the Philippines. English proficiency and price affordability are some of the reasons they choose a Philippine university rather than those in their home country. As a result, ESL (English as second language) schools are also sprouting in Manila, Cebu, and other major cities.
The University of the Philippines in Diliman (U.P. Diliman), offers the largest number of courses among all Philippine universities. It has 246 undergraduate degree programs and 362 graduate degree programs offering courses in liberal arts, history, social sciences, law, business and economics, natural sciences, engineering, music, fine arts and many others.
Popular courses among Philippine university students include nursing, medical technology, physical therapy, occupational therapy and other medical courses. Also popular are courses in engineering, architecture, law, IT, computer science, education, and mass communications.
