UP Visayas welcomes incoming and continuing graduate students
Almost 320 graduate students registered and attended the Graduate Orientation Program conducted by the Graduate Program Office (GPO) on September 16, 2017 at the UPV Auditorium, Iloilo City campus. The orientation gave the students a picture of their would-be life as graduate students at UPV. It also aimed to prepare the graduate students to the challenges of graduate studies.
Prof. Encarnacion Emilia S. Yap, Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, in her message, advised the graduate students on the need to balance their studies with the demand of work. This, as majority of them are learning while earning. She also encouraged them to have a work plan and pursue proper time management.
Dr. Vivian A. Topor, GPO Director, introduced the UPV Officials and presented the highlights of the General Rules and Regulations for the Masters (thesis and non-thesis) and the Doctoral Degree programs.
The event was also attended by the UPV Officials, members of the faculty and staff. As of August 2017, a total of 509 students are enrolled in the UPV graduate programs.
