International Students Office

Introduction

Since its birth, the Philippine Women’s University (PWU) has rendered a noble service both to the citizens and beyond through the “holistic education” approach. Over the past several decades, the University has been known as one of the best higher learning oasis in the Philippines where numerous international students acquire good skills and trainings through quality education.

As the number of international students increases every year, it is also vital to put into place some of the essential requirements they need to know before coming to the country or during the course of their stay especially issues related to the Immigration Office of the Philippines.

Besides offering academic excellence, the University also believes strongly that International Students can be catalyst of peace and ambassadors of unity by manifesting the spirit of ecumenism and as one family members regardless of culture, race, country and religion within the school environment.

Purpose of PWU International Office (PWUIO)

The Philippine Women’s University International Office (PWUIO) serves the international community in PWU by providing programs and services for international students who come from diverse countries, cultures, beliefs, languages and social and economic backgrounds.

The mission is to encourage PWU International Students to integrate international experience into their education, and to help students to identify and to pursue opportunities for study and research while they are at PWU in the Philippines.

The International Office also acts as a liaison between PWU and a variety of public and private agencies in matters affecting the University’s international students and scholars. These are embassies/consuls, professionals among others.

All newly admitted international students need to visit the PWUIO after Registration. They should bring their passports and entry permits or other evidence of their immigration status and their full addresses in Manila, the Philippines. The PWUIO encourages all foreign students and scholars to take advantage of its programs and services. An adviser is always on duty to help with any problem or concern.

A fundamental goal is also to foster an environment in which its members may live, learn and share experiences productively together, making use of the rich resources of their cultures and heritages during the course of the period of stay in the University.

“By accepting membership in the University, an individual joins a community ideally characterized by free expression, free inquiry, intellectual honesty, respect for the dignity of others, and openness to constructive change.”

For this goal to be achieved, the International Students must be understanding and supportive ones, characterized by civility and consideration for one another. Therefore, the standards and expectations of this community are high, as much so in the quality of interpersonal relationships as they are in academic performance.

International Students from different back grounds foster, enhance and create together a foundation for the responsible, respectful society that PWU seeks to foster among its students, faculty, and staff.

In spite of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, religion, age, national or ethnic origin, political beliefs, the PWU International Students are encouraged to foster “unity in diversity.”
