Message from the Chancellor

Welcome to the University of the Philippines Manila (UP Manila) website.  Thank you for visiting us to know more about the university.

As the country’s leading institution in health education, research, and public service, UP Manila seeks to contribute significantly to the improvement of the people’s health and help the country sustain its health gains.  How the university fulfills this mission is a huge and constant challenge to its faculty, staff, students, and alumni and which this website seeks to affirm.

We hope that you will find in this website relevant information and facts on our graduate and undergraduate programs, admission and enrolment processes, student services, scholarships, researches, public service programs, and the distinguished alumni that UP Manila had produced and nurtured through the years.

Apart from the basic information, the website also provides useful links to more detailed information that are relevant to the students, faculty and other viewers.  These include the websites of the University Library, Office of the University Registrar, Office of Student Affairs, Office of Alumni Relations, National Institutes of Health, and the different colleges.  Links are also provided for the four modules of the eUP program:  Student  Academic Information System, Human Resource Information System, and Financial Management Information System.

As this site is a work in progress, we will appreciate your feedback in our efforts to make this website friendlier and more functional.
