UP, Ateneo classes to start in August will other school follow suit?

Two of the country’s top schools the University of the Philippines (UP) and Ateneo de Manila University just announced on Thursday a change in the academic calendar, shifting the opening of classes from June to August.


Classes at UP in Manila, Los Baños, Baguio, Cebu, the Visayas and Mindanao, and UP Open University will start in August and end in May, but UP Diliman, which has “not completed consultations,” and UP Integrated School will still follow the old schedule.

The first semester will run from August to December, the second semester from January to May, and a short term from June to July.

Ateneo will start the new schedule in academic year 2015-2016 in the Loyola Schools and the Professional Schools.

Ateneo Grade School and High School will retain the June to March academic calendar.

Will these changes affect other schools and universities? Are we going to see regular schools and universities opening in August becomes a norm in the Philippines in the near future?

What do you think?
