UST to adjust academic calendar

THE UNIVERSITY plans to synchronize its academic calendar with the rest of the world as a step toward “internationalization,” and in preparation for the economic integration of the Southeast Asian region in 2015.

This means that from the conventional June-March cycle, the academic year will run from September-June, coinciding with the typhoon season.

The plan will allow the University to adapt to the planned Asean Economic Community (AEC) in 2015, said Clarita Carillo, vice rector for academic affairs.

“An academic calendar that is synchronized with international universities will allow greater efficiency in implementing student and faculty exchange programs,” Carillo said in an email to the Varsitarian.
