MANILA, Philippines - Wondering which university to apply in? PhilStar.com compiled a list of higher educational institutions all over the country to see which universities made it to the list of schools that offer the best tertiary education.

Data have been sourced from the Commission on Higher Education's (CHED) list of higher educational institutions which are considered centers of excellence and development. These schools "have demonstrated the highest degree or level of standard along the areas of instruction, research and extension," according to the commission.

CHED added that these schools "provide institutional leadership in all aspects of development in specific areas of discipline in the various regions by providing networking arrangements to help ensure the accelerated development of higher educational institutions in their respective service areas."
