University of Luzon (UL)
University of Luzon (UL) was established in 1948. Due to UL's consistent academic excellence, the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) granted University of Luzon university status when the institution was still known as Luzon Colleges in 2002.
UL offers a wide array of bachelor courses related to the fields of medical technology, pharmacy, and nursing.
Currently, Philippine Association of Colleges and Universities Commission on Accreditation (PACUCOA) awarded UL as the only higher education institution up north with the highest accredited academic programs. In addition to that, CHED acknowledged UL as a fully autonomous university and granted the university a Center of Excellence status. Along with CHED, the Department of Education (DepEd) and the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) certified the university as a Center of Training in Teacher Education.
