I was reading an online newspaper one day and I came across this
article from http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/ where it enumerated the
Philippines most expensive colleges and universities.
Most of these schools are from Metro Manila.
Here are the lists
1. Enderun Colleges
P231,000 to P300,000 per year
2. De La Salle University
P196,000 to P230,000 per year
3. University of Asia and the Pacific
P190,000 to P200,000 per year
4. Information and Communications Technology Academy
P181,000 to P211,000 per year
5. De La Salle - College of Saint Benilde
P180,000 to P240,000 per year
6. Ateneo De Manila University
P180,000 per year
7. San Beda College
P146,000 to P155,000 per year
8. Mapua Institute of Technology
P130,000 to P140,000 per year
9. Miriam College
P60,000 to P80,000 per semester
P37,000 to P69,000 per semester for local students
P66,000 to P78,000 per semester for foreign students
I do not understand the reason for these expensive tuition fees.
Some of the schools listed above are unknown to me until now.
Its my first time to know such school as Enderum Colleges and
Information and Communications Technology Academy.
I personally judge the caliber of a Philippine Colleges and
Universities by its performance in the Professional Licensure
University of the Cordilleras in Baguio City for instance is
a consistent Top performer in the Criminology Licensure
examination but it charges its students less than P20,000
University of the Philippines in Diliman and all its other
campuses are consistent Top performer in the various Licensure
Examination but charges less than those listed above.
If I will turn back time and given a chance to choose a college
or university and money is not an issue, I will choose the
school with the best performance in the licensure or board
examination and not the school that charges the most
expensive tuition fees.
