The top schools in the Philippines for 2011
Four years ago, our list of the top schools in the Philippines for 2007 (according to CHED) caused quite a stir. It’s proven a particularly sensitive topic, especially to alumni who feel obligated to defend the honor of their alma mater. How have the rankings changed in the last four years?
While we’d love to feature updated rankings from CHED, the government agency hasn’t released any new list in the past few years. So for this edition of our top schools list, we’re relying on figures published by QS Top Universities. The website, maintained by Quacquarelli Symonds Limited, regularly ranks universities worldwide based on a specific set of criteria, claiming to help prospective undergraduate and graduate students choose the right school for their needs.
Only 13 universities from the Philippines made the site’s 2011 Asian University Rankings.
|University of the Philippines||62=||58.10|
|Ateneo de Manila University||65||57.20|
|University of Santo Tomas||104||47.10|
|De La Salle University||107||45.90|
|University of Southeastern Philippines||201+||18.70|
|University of San Carlos||201+||14.00|
|Central Mindanao University||201+||13.60|
|Saint Louis University||201+||10.00|
|Father Saturnino Urios College||201+||6.20|
|Mindanao State University||201+||5.70|
UP – tied with National Taiwan University of Science And Technology (formerly National Taiwan Institute of Technology)
UST – tied with National Taiwan Normal University
For some reason the rankings are different when you look at each university’s world ranking from 2010. Many of the institutions listed above don’t even have a rank on the worldwide stage, while ADMU is higher than UP. All N/A ranks are sorted by institution name.
We expect the lists to generate their own “Ha! My school is better than yours!” arguments soon.
