UNIVERSITY OF THE PHILIPPINES
Eighty-eight years from the university's establishment in 18 June 1908, the University of the Philippines has become a "multiversity" with six autonomous campuses in Diliman, Los Baños, Manila, Visayas, Mindanao and the Open University.
As the country's premier university, it instills in its faculty and students a passion for truth, a resolute commitment to academic freedom, and a deep devotion to the rigors of scholarship. This strong liberal tradition, the legacy UP bequeaths to all its graduates, has produced leaders not only in government, industry, and education but also in social movements. Except for units that offer only graduate programs, the University does not have separate faculties for undergraduate and graduate students.
The academic year consists of two semesters and a summer class. The first semester starts on June and ends on October while the second semester is from November to March. Summer class is from April to May.
