University of Visayas-103 years of excellence in Education

University of visayas-UV Gullas college of medicine

At the University Of Visayas Gullas School Of Medicine, we prepare students to excel across global landscapes.

The late Don Vicente A. Gullas founded the Visayan Institute (V.I.) in Cebu City in 1919, which later became the University of the Visayas. The actual offices of the V.I. at its unusual location were completely destroyed during the next World War. Don Vicente resumed his studies in Argao, Cebu in 1946 despite obstacles. The Institute returned to its previous location at Cebu City's Colon Corner D. Jakoslem Streets after a year.

As early as its founding, the V.I. had led educational breakthroughs to provide equal educational opportunities, particularly for the underprivileged yet deserving students. During the 1940s, it was Cebu City's primary institution for running after-hours classes for working students. Before being adopted by the Department of Education, Culture and Sports (now the Department of Education) in the 1980s, the “Study Now, Pay Later Plan" had been a training programme at the Virgin Islands.

In 1948, the Visayan Institute was granted University status, the first to turn into a University in Cebu, and later was renamed to be called as University of the Visayas (UV).

Since then, there has been a remarkable growth in its elementary education, undergraduate and graduate contributions, as well as in its physical offices. As the school opened a total of eight satellite grounds throughout Cebu Province, Wear Vicente Gullas also brought education closer to the people, making it the private university in Cebu with the most outdoor grounds.

The University has grown into a foundation with an anticipated enrollment of more than 20,000 students distributed over its grounds from an initial enlistment of 37 students when it was founded. Long-term, the University has also produced top scorers on board exams and honoured graduates who have been successful in their chosen industries.
