The country’s national university issued a statement on Oct. 13 regarding the result of the 2023 WUR released this week.

In the latest WUR, the Ateneo De Manila University (AdMU) was ranked as the country’s top university after making it to the 351-400 bracket.



The country’s premier university lost its footing and slipped to the 800-1001 bracket in the latest WUR. In 2022, UP was the country’s top university for being included in the 600-801 bracket.

“UP is currently reviewing the indicators and data from the THE’s latest WUR to gain insights for the University’s future measures and directions,” the University said.

The University pointed out that its latest standing among universities worldwide “will serve as valuable insight in determining UP’s way forward in its mission to serve the nation, through the delivery of the highest level of education to our youth.”

Meanwhile, UP extended its congratulations to the students, faculty, staff, and alumni of the Ateneo on ADMU’s placing in the 351-400 bracket in the latest THE-WUR.

“Such accomplishments by Philippine HEIs are a net gain for the honor and prestige of the country and an inspiration for all Filipino scholars and academics,” UP added.
