About University of the Philippines
The University of the Philippines has seven constituent universities — UP Diliman (with an extension program in Pampanga), UP Baguio, UP Los Baños, UP Manila, UP Visayas (with campuses in Iloilo/Miagao, Cebu and Tacloban), UP Mindanao, and the Open University (which has its own admission test). Some degree programs are offered in only one campus (e.g., BS Nursing, BA Agriculture) while others are offered in two or more campuses (e.g., BA Psychology, BS Computer Science). The Diliman campus is the University’s flagship campus and offers the largest number of degree programs. Other campuses are known for specific areas of specialization. For example, UP Manila is the country’s center of excellence in the health sciences; UP Los Baños is a distinguished center of academic excellence in agriculture, forestry and related sciences in Asia; UP Visayas is noted for its program in fisheries which is recognized as one of the best in Asia; UP Baguio is noted for its Cordillera Studies program; and the UP Open University, offering mainly post-graduate degree programs, provides educational opportunities beyond the boundaries of a conventional university (i.e., through distance learning).
As the premier State University, UP offers a wide range of degree programs. Most of these require qualification through the UP College Admission Test (UPCAT). To maintain its high standard of education and to maximize its limited resources, UP has had to limit slots for freshman admission to each campus and to its various degree programs.
Some programs are in much greater demand than others so that their freshman slots are often more quickly filled. Other programs may not be as much in demand so that their limits are rarely, if ever, reached. Programs where the demand often surpasses the available slots are considered to be over-subscribed. One must qualify for these programs through the UPCAT. Graduates of foreign high schools may qualify for admission into programs that are not over-subscribed as beginning freshmen without having to take the UPCAT provided they meet other requirements. Details on the specific requirements may be obtained from the Office of the University Registrar of the respective UP campuses.
