About University of the Philippines

The University of the Philippines is the country’s national university. Established on 18 June 1908 through the ratification of Act No. 1870 of the First Philippine Legislature, UP has grown over the past century into a university system consisting of eight constituent universities and one autonomous college, located in 17 campuses all over the archipelago.

To date, UP offers 190 undergraduate and 381 graduate programs, more than any other university in the country. It provides the broadest range of offerings that embraces almost all interests and inclinations in the thriving liberal atmosphere that is the hallmark of a UP education.

UP alumni have become the country’s leaders in education, health professions, politics and governance, business, law, sciences, the arts, and other disciplines. As of 2022, UP has produced 39 of the 42 National Scientists; 50 of the 81 National Artists; all nine of the country’s National Social Scientists; seven of the 17 Presidents of the Republic; 13 of the 24 Senate Presidents; 11 of the 26 Speaker of the House of Representatives;15 of the 27 Chief Justices of the Supreme Court; at least 15,000 doctors, 8,000 lawyers,15,000 engineers, and 23,000 teachers; and hundreds of thousands of graduates in other academic fields.

UP is the only Philippine university in the ASEAN-European University Network, a network of universities that aim to promote the continuous internationalization of education and research.
