    Ateneo?

    Just kidding. It's the UP System.
  • UE: 120,000 students
    FEU: 110,000 students
    PUP: 65,000 students
    NCBA: 55,000 students
    UST: 45,000 students
    UP-Diliman: 25,000 students
    DLSU-Manila: 13,000 students
    Ateneo de Manila: 9,000 students
    DLSU-CSB: 4,000 students

    The universities in the Recto-Espana area have the largest college student population.
  • i guess that settles it. :)
  • mtpipina:

    where did you get the statistics? student population in ust ranges from 30,000 to 33,000 (primary, secondary, tertiary and graduate students).
  • Isn't UST the world's largest university in terms of student population on one campus? Just askin.
  • UST is the world's largest CATHOLIC university.
  • The Royal and Pontifical University of Santo Tomas is the oldest existing university in Asia, and in terms of student population, the largest Catholic university in the world located in one campus.

    -UST Public Alumni Affairs

  • I think the University of Mexico has largest student population in the world. UST, on the other hand, is the world's largest Catholic university located in one campus, around 30,000 (primary, secondary and tertiary as what dominicus said). But I think the UP system is the largest, considering the 5-7 campuses in the Philippines. :)

  • Why do universities in the Recto-Espana corridor have zillions of college students?

    Is it because they provide quality education that's why they are popular OR is it because their college admission policies are LAX.

    It is because their college admission policies are VERY LAX such that they would accept students who failed to enter UP, La Salle or Ateneo. Just the truth.

    The better universities limit their college enrollment.
  • Because the true essence of education cannot (read: should not) be bought.

    Education is not some sort of a high-priced commodity. Education should be for all. But just the same, UST is one of the best universities in the Philippines - not that expensive, 2nd in Asiaweek's Philippine universities' student selectivity, and sure produces one of the best, if not the best, graduates. Facts are more believable than some misguided beliefs. Right, alcuazas?

    really alcuazas?

    30K buong school population ng UST yon, tsk tsk tsk...

    eh ang tanong, sa dami ba ng mga branches nyo, sa tingin nyo mas konti pa rin kayo?

    probably in UP & Ateneo, kasi everybody knows for a fact that mahirap talagang kumuha ng slot there, pero in DLSU? ewan ko na lang...
  • I really wonder if the Recto universities have any admission policies at all. WALA SIGURO. It seems they get all the students that apply to them unlike the TOP 3 (UP-Diliman, De La Salle Manila and Ateneo de Manila).

    Benilde has 7,000 students now. That's what I've heared as of the last data.

    Even in the richest country in the world the U.S.A. - college education is NOT FREE and definitely NOT FOR ALL.

    High quality college education is EXPENSIVE not only in the Philippines but also in the U.S.A. since government with its very limited annual budget can only subsidize very few state universities even in the U. S.

    Thus the need for high quality but very expensive PRIVATE universities like Harvard, Yale or Stanford in the U. S. and De La Salle and Ateneo in the Philippines.

    In fact in the U.S., its TOP universities are Expensive PRIVATE universities like Harvard, Stanford, Yale, etc. & not state universities despite their subsidies.

    In the Philippines, U.P. a state subsidized university is No. 1 but at the rate its annual government subsidy is decreasing, it wouldn't be long before De La Salle and Ateneo will overtake it.

    So QUALITY PRIVATE COLLEGE EDUCATION is EXPENSIVE anywhere in the world since it is not subsidized by the government.

    Of course you can go to a CHEAP PRIVATE university like UST but of course it will not be able to offer you a high quality college education like what UP, La Salle and Ateneo offers.

  • O eh bakit considered as one of the best universities in Asia ang UST, alcuazas? Tapos mura lang dun tulad ng sinasabi ninyo. Tapos pare-pareho silang nasa 70s ng La Salle at Ateneo, ha? Eh mas mahal binabayad ninyo no, eh 'di dapat mas mataas ang rank ng Ateneo at lalo na ang La Salle? Bakit?
    Bakit pare-pareho silang nasa 70s? Bakit, alcuazas? Bakit? Paki-explain nga kasi "taga-UST" lang ako. Magyabang kung nasa top 10 o 20 kayo. Pare-pareho lang lahat silang nasa 70s, di ba?
