3 Philippine universities among worlds best English-teaching schools

Manila (Philippine Daily Inquirer/ANN) - Three Philippine Universities are among the top 50 universities in the world when it comes to teaching English according to a new survey by the London-based research and ratings firm Quacquarelli Symonds (QS).
In a statement sent to the Philippine Daily Inquirer, QS said the country¿s ¿specialist strength¿ in the English language was affirmed in results of its latest World University Rankings by Subject, an index that rates universities across 29 disciplines.
Ateneo de Manila University posted the highest rating of all Philippine schools, ranking 24th in English language and literature. University of the Philippines ranked 32 while De La Salle University ranked 44th.
World-renowned universities in the United Kingdom and the United States took the top five spots (in this order): Cambridge, Harvard, Oxford, Yale and University of California Berkeley.
¿The specialist strengths of Philippine universities in English language and literature are clearly shown in these rankings. The country should be proud of their achievements," Ben Sowter, QS research chief, said in the statement sent to the Inquirer.
The Philippines rated in only one other discipline, with UP placing within the 101-150 bracket in Geography.
QS ranked schools on 29 subjects ¿based on academic reputation, employer reputation, and citations per paper," QS said.
Amid strong showing in English, Philippine universities have been slipping in world rankings in the past few years.

  1. Very nice post. Philippine education is really evolving. All we need to do now is to come up with different ways on how to address what students need from time to time. That's because generations change as time passes by. We need to be very dynamic and open to changes.
