Visiting Student Admissions

Visiting students are students registered in other local or international recognized universities requesting to take courses at PMU that will count towards their degrees in their home institutions. To be able to register for a course as a visiting student, the applicant should meet the particular course requirements and pre-requisites, secure an approval from the home institution, and be approved by the college offering the course at PMU. All undergraduate courses at PMU are taught in English and the applicant should also meet English language requirements to be admitted as a visiting student.
Visiting students are temporary members of the PMU community. They are expected to observe all academic and non-academic regulations.
Visiting students may choose to transfer to PMU as resident students, in which case the transfer policy applies.
