Internationalization

Overview

Internationalization is a thrust of the University of Santo Tomas, in its attempt to foster mutually beneficial and enriching partnerships with educational institutions, associations, and consortia. Such a thrust has several facets: student mobility, academic and administrative staff mobility, program mobility, research collaboration, and the conduct of joint scientific/academic activities.

All these are facilitated by the Office of International Relations and Programs (OIRP), established in 2013. The OIRP liaises with the different faculties, colleges, institutes, and schools, which have their own Internationalization Coordinators, for the efficient management of the University’s linkages.

As of 2017, the linkages total to 140 in 28 countries, spread across five continents.
