The Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila (University of the City of Manila in English, commonly abbreviated as PLM, or simply Pamantasan), is the largest city government-funded, tuition-free, university in the Philippines.

It also holds the distinction of being the first Philippine institution of higher learning to have its official name in Filipino. The Philippines' Commission on Higher Education (CHEd) has considered PLM as a model for public institutions across the Philippines.

Furthermore, it has cited several PLM programs and departments as Centers of Excellence. A study using cumulative data from 1999 to 2003 showed that during the said period PLM was among the top five schools in the Philippines in terms of board exam passing rate. In the same study, it was one among three public universities in the top ten category.

And from what I heard, donG, a not so easy to get into school. They're very selective of the prospective students' academic accomplishments. I love its campus :)

@photo cache: Medicine has long been offered. It has a very good curriculum.

@senor enrique: I am from PLM. Had my BS Accountancy there. I remember the qualifying exams and "ideal" grades that we had to battle to remain in Accountancy program. Thanks for doing this post. I haven't been there since I graduated. Seemingly lots of things have changed.

I have to pay a visit once I go back there for a vacation. The photos did put me in a nostalgic mode. =)

Btw, what brought you there?

It's in Intramuros, bertN. I think Manila residents get admission priority.

I was invited to cover the "Dear Peace" traveling exhibit, Witsandnuts -

and while waiting for the festivities to start. I decided to walk around and take some pictures of the nice campus.

From what I understand, students are required to maintain a certain grade point average to remain this school.
