Best Universities In the Philippines


The Top Ten

1 University of the Philippines

The University of the Philippines is just simply best. Enough said.

(God, do I have to say more? Everyone knows that UP is the best among the premier universities in the Philippines. You learn about most everything here. UP is the BEST. )

A university named after its nation. NO. 1 in rankings. And even in board exams. Obviously the BEST among the rest. Got what it takes to pass the UPCAT? It takes U.P. (Utak at Puso) to enter U.P. it prepares students through difficulties for them to be able to take life a little easier than it would be after college.

I can't understand why UP is not number one in this list. It usually is in most lists.

Our teacher in English IX said that UP is the premiere state university named after its nation. Which is very true. This is literally the best school in the Philippines. No doubt about that. #rural

2 Polytechnic University of the Philippines

PUP is the best for me.. It is the University of the Poor and the Home of the Leaders.. Haha.. It has the lowest tuition fee here in Asia, 12 pesos per unit! Even the facilities are not good enough and you need to go to another room to get a chair, what is good here is the Quality of Education.. One of the best in Engineering and Accountancy in the Philippines! Viva PUP! Long Live Sintang Paaralan!

BSEE 2-1 student

'Cause being a PUPian is great! Maroon is AWESOME! :) Polytechnic University of the Philippines is a state university that offers low tuition but still provides high quality education, that's why they always say that being PUPian is a wonderful encounter and we believe that PUP also means Pataasan ng Utak, Pababaan ng tuition. "

PUP has still the lowest tuition fee ever that provides a good number of highly skilled graduates. PUP has been one of the best state universities in the Philippines and making its name well recognized in the country. Move up' PUP! Strive for the best!

Its just the best of the best university in the philippines.

4 University of Sto. Tomas

The University of Santo Tomas stands as one of the best universities, not only in the Philippines, but also in Asia and Western countries as well. In its 400 years of existence, UST has created its own identity- a center rich in cultural heritage, moral values and spirituality, an institution which offers the best quality education, and a training ground for future professionals and leaders of the country. Through the years, UST has been producing top notch students excelling in all fields; namely, arts, sports, science, mathematics and etc. As a matter of fact, Thomasians produce consistent topnotchers in all of the board examinations, unlike other schools which only appear in the list every two or three years. Also, UST has been recognized as one of the best schools in Asia, and at several times, it has been included in the list of the top 500 universities of the world. Given that it offers the best quality education in the country, many iconic identities are a product of this ...more

A Thomasian will always be a Thomasian in heart and in mind. I am very proud to be a Thomasian and I am proud of my alma mater. Celebrating its 400th year of foundation proves that it is one of the best making a statement that it can last for a very long time. I AM PROUD TO BE A THOMASIAN!

I believe that ust is one of the prestigious school in the Philippines.

5 Ateneo De Manila University

I think it is a rarity and most definitely an asset in Philippine tertiary education that we have the confluence of a liberal and humanities-oriented curriculum, a Jesuit led administration, and a school environment that values a holistic, well-rounded development manifested in the Ateneo. Currently an undergraduate that has been with ADMU since high school, I can attest to the quality of education I am fortunate to experience as a result of the unparalleled faculty, superb facilities, and epiphany thrust of values that underscores what the Ateneo education stands for. Steeped in continuing its tradition of excellence, Ateneo de Manila remains one of the country's most prestigious and foremost partner in nation-building.

Quality is a six-letter word: A-T-E-N-E-O.

What makes Ateneo unique is it forms its students holistically, that's the edge of the Ateneo graduates to graduates of other universities. Ateneo has produced thousands of responsible citizens, including the National Hero, Dr. Jose Rizal. It is also part of the network of Jesuit universities across the globe, including some of the World's Top Universities.

Existing for more than 150 years, being the center of excellence, the Ateneo de Manila University is truly the Philippines' best. Other Jesuit-run universities in the country, Ateneo de Zamboanga University, Xavier University-Ateneo de Cagayan, Ateneo de Naga University and Ateneo de Davao University also, are some of the most respectable in the Philippines.

It is the most elite school in the Philippines, no doubt. In terms of intelligence and quality of professors, it is at par with UP. In terms of financial affluence, it is the best followed by La Salle Taft. In terms of student values, it is more or less equal to UST.

Ateneo de Manila has the biggest number of alumni/nae who have been admitted to the world's most prestigious universities like Harvard, Stanford, Oxford, Yale, Cambridge, London, MIT, NYU, Georgetown and the like as a testimony to its world-class quality.

Finally, Ateneo gives opportunities even to graduates from not-so-well known schools as long as these students are very hardworking. Examples are former Law Dean Cesar Villanueva (a graduate of Holy Angel University who was given scholarship by Ateneo Law, and would eventually finish doctorate in Harvard)

So if you're really hardworking and intellectually brilliant, welcome to Ateneo!

Quality education is always a priority!

6 De La Salle University (Manila)

De La Salle University Manila (DLSU) continues to be highly-regarded globally as the ultimate Philippine cradle of learning for the well-rounded individuals. Indeed it is one of the rare breed of Philippine higher educational institutions where topnotch rigorous academic programmes (in a fast-paced academic period) are offered vis-à-vis its equally-valued religious programmes. No other well-respected institutions in the Philippines offer heavily-filtered admission process that favours student applicants who possess outstanding IQ and EQ combined. The award-winning programmes and professors welcome those who managed to surmount the high bar of admissions. And the DLSU students always deliver - always the upper decile of performers in nationwide board examinations and global qualifications. It is no surprise why DLSU graduates of Business, Science, Engineering and the Arts are constantly sought after by the real world out there, one of the evidence of the priceless worth of this ...more

Ethical and critical thinkers abound in this celebrated prestigious global educational institution. Student satisfaction, A+. Teaching quality, A+. Research impact, A+. Employment prospects, A+. But it does not stop here. While other institutions, for some reason, produce graduates who are raw or over-cooked in terms of maturity and outlook in life, De La Salle University has always leaned towards producing graduates who are just(ifiably) right in their own morals, ethical knowledge and wisdom. I cringe when other universities proclaim how much aggressive leaders they have produced over the history of the Philippine economy when, if you scrutinize and evaluate how much they have plundered or prioritized personal gain over country's, they have only contributed to the deficit and ailing problems of our crippled economy. But De La Salle graduates are nothing like the corrupting 'cancer cell' products of other educational institutions. De La Salle graduates, in fact, serve as the backbone ...more

"De La Salle University is a higher education institution that seeks to respond to the call and needs of the Church and the country. It aims to play a key role in the formation and education of future leaders and achievers. Its community hopes to contribute to nation building. "

De La Salle University molds not only brain but also the personality of the student. I am proud to be a part of this school especially it is the ideal school for business courses.

Simply the Best...

7 Mapua Institute of Technology

Fellow Mapuans, we don't need to justify anything about our school. We've been known over the years. Let's just stay humble and work hard and help in building the nation's future. Viva Mapua!

The first and only school in southeast asia accredited by ABET, among the most respected accreditation organizations in the U.S.
With eight programs accredited namely electrical engineering, electronics and communications engineering, computer engineering and just this august 19,2011 includes Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Environmental and Sanitary Engineering, Industrial Engineering and Mechanical Engineering...
Being the only school in the Philippines with this status where education is compared to that of Massachusetts institute of technology, there's no way this cool shouldn't be on the first spot

Mapua is the Best Especially on engineering we may not be good in English sometimes but you can't ever beat us on Math

Stress? Pressure? We eat that for breakfast. Fast-paced learning? Multi-tasking? normal- like breathing. Puyat nights and "Terror" professors? Nah, definitely not shaking us. Four Terms a year? 11 weeks to process and learn everything? exit exams? Lubog na Maynila, mag eexam ka pa? HAHA! #LabanMapuan

"yung kape nalang and bumubuhay sayo - yan, Yan and buhay mapuan." #Cardinal&Gold #HomeOfTheTopNotchers Viva Mapua!

8 Our Lady of Fatima University (OLFU)

I didn't graduate from this school but I have to rate this school as the no. 1 university in the Philippines based on the learning experience my grandkids have been telling me. You see I'm a graduate of Heald Institute of Technology in California and took college courses at the Old Dominion University in Vrginia and University of Hawaii as well, and found similarities in the teaching approach there at OLFU as related by my grandkids (one takes nursing and the other one HRM). The main driving force that makes a student to excel is how the school educates the students in relation to their moral, spiritual and social relevance in their respective community that will eventually lead them to become a responsible, productive and caring citizens not only there but wherever they choose to go. A school has to capture the heart and mind of its studentry in order to live up to its name as provider of excellent education, and OLFU definitely is right on the mark. I have the opportunity to ...more

Quality Education is a MUST and OLFU have it. Having a very affordable tuition fees is not a basis of quality education. Its not about how expensive the tuition is.. Its about how your University perform during learning processing & MOST OF ALL, TRAINING STUDENTS TO BE BOARD PASSERS. Let us not deny that Our Lady of Fatima University PRODUCES TOPNOTCHERS & MANY BOARD EXAM PASSERS :))

--BS Pharmacy
FYI: (Pharmacy Board Exam 2nd placer is from OLFU

this university is the best university in the Philippines, coz' they are not only teaching the students in academic but also they develop students to improve them man as man through a legacy of excellent education and compassionate value formation.

When you immigrated to other country you have to compete with the graduates of your new adopted country and graduates from all over the world. My training fom National University in Manila prepared for my mechanical engineering profession and I was able to practiced that profession at Ford Motor Co. in Dearborn, Michigan U.S.A. It is also your adaptability to the new technology that will guide you to your success and sense of accomplishment. Thank you NU for preparing me to compete. We don't have the nice campus or world class facilities during my time but our passing rate specially in Architecture and Engineering is the envy of many schools.

Let's see how this institution with a colorful past will be revived to meet the advances of this age. Nice National University!

19 Mindanao State University

It has one of the lowest tuition fee in the Philippines, majority of the students only pays 2000 pesos during an enrollment to cover all the fees. Not only that, the cost of living of the students living here, is indeed, very cheap too. 2500 pesos per month of monthly allowance is enough to cover board, lodging, and other usual student needs. Speaking of the quality of education, many professors finished their master's and doctoral degrees on prestigious universities abroad. A big plus is that this university is also a social laboratory for Filipino Christians, Lumads, and Muslims wherein the three group of people are given an environment to understand each other's ways and culture. Majority of the students here are coming from the poorest family in Mindanao who couldn't have afford a college education if MSU is not existing. Because of the nature of the student populace, they become very competitive and always aiming that apple on the top of the bough, thinking that being in MSU is ...more

MSU-IIT raises the bar for schools that have low to extra-low budgets. Since I graduated in 2003 the school has transformed itself from the inside out. The ratio of Masters-Doctors to student population runs high and increases every year while the buildings are being added each year. The training that one gets from this school is way beyond the schools in Metro Manila. From language, arts, engineering, science, physics and mathematics MSU-IIT has competed nationally and internationally. It boasts of its world-class teaching force and a dedicated administrative force. The other schools in this list are what they are just because they have the luxury of having resources that MSU-IIT can consider way, way bigger than what has been accomplished. For students that are poor yet gifted with grit and intellect this school is the best.

I am enjoying my profession because I am working in a American based multi-national company. My peers have nothing bad to say about my work ethics and intellectual capability. This is so because I was trained in Mindanao State University and thanks to my mentors for providing the rigid training, in an MSUan way. I've worked with alumni from 4 best known universities and they were and are always shocked when founding out I was a graduate of MSU, they always thought I finished my engineering degree from 'THE GREEN ARCHER'. By the way, I enjoyed both life in mountain campus of Marawi and the sea level campus of IIT. Tru blood MSUan, always! I just hope Mindanao State University will maintain the standards and even aspire to be the best university within ASEAN.

Proud na proud ako sa MSU, maraming nakapagtapus ng pag aaral lalo na sa mga mahihirap, at maraming makapasa sa mga board exams, thank you

Letran was graded a College of the First Class by ROYAL DECREE in May of 1865 in Spain. It just happened that we are offering least programs than our Sister School; The Pontifical and Royal University of Santo Tomas and other prestigious schools around Metro Manila. Are you gonna study in a university where you pay very high and you're not getting the quality should every student possess, or you'll study in a Prestigious College where you can assure that you'll get job easily soon as you graduate because you're credible to do the task. THINK. I'm a proud Letranite and I am bias, I know when to be and not.

One of the best colleges in the Philippines. Because most of the Philippine presidents and Philippine heroes has studied in Letran. Cradle of Philippine Heroes and President. And Letran produced a Saint. Saint Liem de la Paz.

Letran embodies a values oriented school, Values that teaches us how to live in a Christian way. The best school for me is about who and what they produce. Letran has been the great because the college is not for itself it is for the Philippines and for God

Several top notchers sa engineering every year. The T.U.P. tradition =D

For almost 111 years existence here in Philippines, TUPians gave a great honor to the country for the first university that offers Excellence Technology and Engineering Education in the country. TUP campuses like TUP TAGUIG, CAVITE, VISAYAS are proved their skills in spite of being a State University that caters Technology and Education in the country. VIVA TUP... Viva TUP Taguig

TUP had proved itself as capable enough at molding new intellectual leaders and outstanding graduates at different field. With its very fine and quality education, students tend to excel at different board examinations seeing their names at the leader board. Compared to other universities that offers just fine education yet need a big tuition, TUP for me, offers the best of it with just a fair tuition.

TUP is a top university with rigid training and teaching

UST : we accept wise students only.
FEU : we accept great students only.
DLSU: we accept competitive students only.
ADMU: we accept intelligent students only.
UP: we accept genius students only.


RTU : we don't need to accept wise, great, competitive, intelligent, or genius students. We create them.

Rizal technological university provides good facilities for the students for them to work hard and study well that's why they I'm proud of being part of it. I am a marketing student in this university freshmen and I'm proudly say that not only facilities in this university is good but also teaching methods of the professors and they provide good and better materials for the students. They are doing this because they believe that "and kabataan and pag asa ng bayan". And all professors here are capable on their positions and they have good attitudes when they talk to the students

The functions and services of RTU are not confined to instruction alone as it is has shifted to full gear towards the enhancement of its research and development programs and continued to pursue the policy of sharing its expertise and resources with the community through its non-formal education programs and extension services.

I'm a QCPU graduate and I am proud of that. Our School may be young but I know QCPU produces highly competitive graduates...

It's not only the best in Information and Communication Technology but also in producing Intellectual Industrial Engineers, ECEs and Young Entrepreneurs.

Quezon City Polytechnic University is a premier institution of professional, technological, education and training and a progressive partner in nation building.

Very Good Training for the industry.

33 Central Philippine University

For me Central Philippine University has maintained her holiness/prestigious-ness for the past century and being my Alma Mater, not only does this AWESOME school offer quality education, but also opens the eyes of the students to the Principles of the Supreme Being, God.

And in the emblem (logo) of our University, it says, "Science et Fides"("Science and Faith") wherein as we graduate, we will take that medallion and certificate of responsibility and discipline with our head held high, just, and honored to serve society with special skills not only guided by education but by our Faith in God too.

SCIENCE & FAITH... Not only does CPU teach us knowledge in our respective fields or career paths but it teaches us the most important thing to do in life... To have a good relationship with our Creator, the One who is ultimately wise and all knowing.

Education and Christianity combined in one curriculum. Balanced Academics, Sports and having GOD as the center of its values formation. At Central Philippine University students education are exemplary.

Proud to be a Centralian!

Central Philippine University is the best university for because they conduct Exemplary Christian Education for Life (EXCEL)..^_^

34 Silliman University

Go and study at Silliman and you'll experience a well rounded Christian education with a beautiful campus conducive to learning. Silliman is a small community by itself where you can really enjoy a "unique" student life which you could hardly experience in other universities. The students have more intimate relationships with each other and thus, easy to develop friendships as well as social skills. Above all it imparts a very high standard of learning. That is why, Silliman is not for everyone. Only the cream of the crop can meet its academic standards. It is also worthy to mention that its library which is one of the biggest in Asia. Indeed, it is one of the best schools in the country. Proud to say.. "I survived Silliman"

Sillimanians? We can carry you away by our simplicity, worn out slippers, scratched jeans, org shirts, and scrap notebooks. But once we talk, prepare to be carried away cause our blood is RED and REAL.

I am not a Sillimanian but I find this institution a great start off of a student to reach its goal at once right after exiting its portals. I believe they don't just accept wise, genius, or even intelligent students but they CREATE IT! They create one of the best products from an excellent quality of education. Heard lots of academic compliments and positive feedbacks from different people and thus made me realize that it's the university I've been dreaming of :) One day, hopefully, I wanna be a part of it. Too bad can't afford such high education there. Lucky are those who have been able to study and survived in this university.

My daughter is now studying in SU from her first year in another college in Dumaguete City, here in Silliman University she feels content, happy and struggle more because learning is a great achievement with good management and expert instructors..Education and environment is best in SU.

I remember sharply when we were being called as "Manangs" with that skirt uniform below the knees and most of my classmates wearing eyeglasses, ahaha... That's the typical PLM student, no time for gimmicks, spending vacant times at Casa Real reading and studying hard! Proud of it! GO PLM!

The best five years of my academic life was spent at this university. Thought me well in my field in engineering and gave me the opportunity to succeed in life. Mabuhay and Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila!

We are not the best in facilities but the teachings are ensured to learning

Stay humble PLMayers! ' GO. GO. GO PLM :) GODbless:3

41 University of Asia and the Pacific

This is the only university that..
-provides a combination of undergraduate and graduate courses for 5 YEARS ONLY (well-refined curriculum)
-almost all teachers are UP graduates and other teachers have Masteral and Doctorate degrees (quality education at its finest)
-has high percentage of landing a job after graduation (or even BEFORE GRADUATION! --through many big affiliate companies)
-has excellent facilities (from aircon-ed classrooms to well-regulated washrooms, etc)
-gives scholarships generously

--What are you waiting for? BLAZE A TRAIL!

People think that this university is only for the rich, but that is wrong! Did you know that 25% of its student population is composed of scholars? That's a lot!

It is the only university that has mentoring program, wherein the mentors guide their students academically and spiritually.
This shows how the university gives importance, not just to the education of its students but also to their moral values.

UNITAS! It means unity of life. That's the motto of UA&P.

42 Technological Institute of the Philippines

TIP then directed itself toward specialization in the field of technology. In 1977, it offered a two-year associate course in Marine Engineering. In 1980, the Liberal Arts and high school programs were phased out to make way for the school's new thrust. In 1981, additional buildings were leased to accommodate the student population which already exceeded 23,000.

Will as professional I am very proud to be an alumni in TIP. Because I higly deserve their objective to maintain high standard, blessing of higher education and cooperating with government in any progressive program for the filipino active students in implementing their successful goals and ambition for their future life. Thanks & long live TIP...

I graduated last April 2013, and carrying with pride the name of our school, I was employed May 6 after I graduated. Its not about the name of the school, but its about QUALITY.

Best Engineering School of the country.

44 Western Mindanao State University

I graduated from WMSU and I experienced what real college life is. We get to enjoy every moment of our lives and regret it later. Haha. The teaching staff and facilities are OK. The best part is it is open to new ideas and organizations to help both the student body and the faculty sector.

I like wmsu... Specially it's the only school here in pagadian that has a good teaching and teachers in special education.

Center of Excellence in Teacher Education, Center of Development on Architecture, Center of Excellence in Agriculture.

Once had the Best Social Work School and Best Forestry School in the Philippines.

What I love about WMSU is its place. Fresh, you can feel the cold breeze touches your skin. WMSU is really a Nature-Friendly University.

46 University of Mindanao

University of Mindanao was the first ISO certified In Mindanao which means the quality of education and state-of-the-art facilities are improving to give students the best that they deserve.

I do believe that UM is known to be the BEST UNIVERSITY in the country. Not only because of its wide campus that make the students feel comfortable but also it reaps NATIONAL and INTERNATIONAL awards. It is also the very first university in Mindanao that has an ISO CERTIFICATION, which means, it really offers a VERY HIGH QUALITY OF EDUCATION... SO, why should I think twice, if there is UM. ,

When you enroll to the University of Mindanao, your life will surely never regret on it because graduates from this Higher Education institution are truly reputable, remarkable and in-demand, LOCALLY, NATIONALLY and INTERNATIONALLY...
No joke. These statements/ descriptions are all true. Simple but realistic.

It is one the best university that offers accountancy program.

47 Central Mindanao University

I vote Central Mindanao University is the best for me because, they give me the best learning and standard of education. It a cheap tuition fees but rich in learning education and standardization. Most of all they molded a students for being independent for their everyday life. Central Mindanao University for me is a conducive for learning. In addition challenge the students being courageous to get the best and among the best academic education.

Central mindanao university considered the academic paradise of the south... Thus, no wonder CMU got to the TOP in any field of specialization... Simple but terrible...

Though we didn't got the highest rank, still we did our part as a student to pursue our education in order for us to fulfill our dreams.. We are not running after the rank all we want is to make C.M.U. well known over the globe! Proudly CMUan!

Probably the cheapest tuition fee for the highest quality of education. I vote Central Mindanao University because it's close to free-expense yet molded student's mental capacity rate become savage and the educators are legendary as well.

Best University in the Bicol Region, especially in Engineering -- Home of Topnotchers!

-- BS CpE

Excellence is what Ateneo de Naga is all about. -captain21

BS ECE in ADNU is really amazing! Extraordinary. Home of topnotchers and is able to defeat the record of UP. And is still improving until present. No doubt, it is the best school in BICOL region and soon in the Philippines.
