Study Abroad in Philippines
The Philippines may be the best-kept secret of southeast Asia. With a unique mix of Malay and Chinese cultures with Spanish and American influences, this nation of over 7,000 islands is like nowhere else in the world. The Filipino people are warm and welcoming, with an eager sense of humor. Many Filipinos speak English and have ties to other countries, so it’s easy for students from abroad to find a place for themselves. The beaches, highlands, and countryside are breathtakingly beautiful, and the cities are stunningly diverse—which is only fitting for this crossroads of cultures. World Endeavors students may find the Philippines to be the perfect spot for an adventure they’ve never imagined.
Live in Quezon City, Philippines
Quezon City is the biggest city in the Philippines, a center of student life, and a former national capital. Nowadays it is part of Metro Manila, an urban area that is home to 13% of the nation’s population. It’s a short trip to the modern-day capital of Manila, a unique city made up of many distinct neighborhoods. Manila is home to the ruins of the colonial Spanish capital, known as Intramuros, as well as historic parks, splendid museums, and some stunningly beautiful churches and mosques. A quirky assortment of restaurants, bars, and nightclubs, plus the vast Mall of Asia, mean that there is no end of ways to stay entertained in Manila. Students can explore these places while living on the UP – Diliman campus, set apart from the main city in a green and student-friendly neighborhood.
