Transnational Education Programmes to be launched by top ten Philippine Universities

It will now soon be possible to earn joint and dual degrees from the top universities in the Philippines and in the United Kingdom, thanks to the Joint Development of Niche Programme (JDNP) by the British Council and Commission on Higher Education (CHED). Through seed funding and institutional capacity building, this programme aims to build long-term collaboration between Philippine and UK universities and establish transnational education (TNE) within the country.


The ten Philippine universities and their counterpart UK institutions that have been selected to develop new and innovative degree programmes are:

1.     Ateneo de Manila University and Queen Mary University of London

2.     Bicol University and University of Liverpool

3.     Central Luzon State University and University of Liverpool

4.     De La Salle University and Liverpool Hope University

5.     Miriam College and Goldsmiths University of London

6.     Saint Louis University and Coventry University

7.     Siliman University and Newcastle University

8.     University of the Philippines and University of Reading

9.     University of San Carlos and Coventry University/Cardiff Metropolitan University

10.  University of Santo Tomas and University of Reading/University of Leeds

Both the British Council and CHED guide these universities through different intensive trainings and workshops. Some of these programmes are intended to be launched by 2018.
