We strongly encourage faculty members to let their students participate in this event that would present to them opportunities for student exchange or short-term academic travels.

The UPD International Fair will feature completed, ongoing and upcoming activities with our international partners. Faculty, students, REPS and staff may also fill out application forms for various international mobility programs on site.

Altogether, the Balangkas Symposium and the Fair will better enable us to find the ways by which we can become more internationally engaged, as we pursue academic excellence.
