The AUN-QA team is continuing strong with site visits for Programme Assessments! The 308th AUN-QA PA at Ateneo de Manila University, the Philippines was conducted on 6 - 8 December with three Programmes assessed. This marks the third time a site visit has been conducted ever since COVID lockdowns were relaxed quite recently. With three recently conducted within two months, AUN-QA is making sure to set a strong statement that site visits are back in full swing and they are ready for more in 2023!

Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU) was established in 1859 and obtained its University status in 1959, and is under the Philippine Commission on Higher Education. Times Higher Education has ranked ADMU as the top University of the Philippines and within the 351 - 400 bracket of the 2023 global list.
