Did you know that the University of San Carlos' claim to be the oldest school in Asia but is being disputed?
University of San Carlos' claim to being the oldest school in Asia, however, is disputed. Historians point out that it cannot trace its origin to the Colegio de San Ildefonso because this school (a grammar school as described by Fr. Ernesto M. Lagura, SVD, president of the University of San Carlos during the Centennial Congress on Higher Education held on May 28–29, 1998) was shut down in 1769 with the expulsion of the Jesuits. In 1783, the Colegio-Seminario de San Carlos opened under new owners. The Pontifical and Royal University of Santo Tomas in Manila has been in existence since 1611 and was interrupted only by World War II. It was elevated to university status in 1645.
