With more than twenty campuses serving more than 80,000 students, the
Polytechnic University of the Philippines is the largest university in terms
of student population. The main campus is named after a national hero,
Apolinario Mabini, and is located in Sta. Mesa, Manila - in the middle of a
busy metropolitan. But despite of this, the environment within its perimeter
is a place conducive of learning.
Scholars of the Nation (Iskolar ng Bayan), that is what we call
our students because the Philippine Government and other non-government
institutions subsidize their tuition and other fees. More than a hundred of
the student population are foreigners from China, Singapore, Indonesia,
Cambodia, Myanmar, Tanzania, Nigeria, and Ghana. They are enrolled in
business, language, statistics, communication, and education courses in the
undergraduate and graduate levels. Students from Korea regularly visit PUP
in summer to take up Intensive English courses.
