Universal College, formerly the Universal College of Nursing, is a school located in Parañaque City, Metro Manila, Philippines. It was established in 2005.

History[edit]

Built and established in 2005, the Universal College of Nursing was founded by its incumbent president, Mr. Domingo Tay. With his background in the manufacturing sector and his sincere desire to contribute to nation-building, Mr. Tay wanted to address the labor demand gap both for the local and global markets. Hence, the first and flagship program became B.S. Nursing which practically occupied half of the 5-storey edifice along Sucat, Road in the bustling city of Paranaque. The school has always forged close links with the government of Paranaque City under the leadership of Mayor Florencio Bernabe Jr.. Following the city’s slogan “Give customers the best treatment they deserve,’’ Mr. Tay was inspired to adopt a school motto that was congruent to it, ‘’A sound mind and a sound body.’’ Tourism (BST), Hotel and Restaurant Management (BSHRM), Information System (BSIS) and Business Administration with Majors in Financial Management and Marketing (BSBA) were subsequently offered. As of 2008, all its academic programs are now recognized by the Commission on Higher Education. To date, UC has new courses such as Bachelor of Elementary Education (BEEd), Bachelor of Secondary Education, BS Accountancy, BS Electrical Engineering, BS Computer Engineering, bs Electronics Engineering, and Short Courses such as Culinary Arts, Medical Transcription, Caregiving NC II, Certificate in Practical Nursing, Hotel and Restaurant Services, PC Operations NC II, Programming NC II and Computer Hardware Servicing NC II. The first batch of B.S. Nursing graduates took the Nursing board examination last June 2009 and seventeen graduates passed and took oath with the Professional Regulation Commission. The school now seeks to be granted a permit to operate its B.S. Accountancy and B.S. Engineering programs commencing school year 2010-2011. The first batch of B.S.
