Apply to Graduate Program

Applying is the first step to start your graduate studies in Benilde.

When is the application schedule?

Applications for graduate programs are accepted every term. Application for 2nd Term AY 2021-2022 is not yet open. In the meantime, you can view the application procedures from the previous school year to have a headstart in preparing your requirements. 

Do you want to be notified once the application schedule is available? 

You can like our Facebook page AdmissionsAtBenilde or follow us on Twitter @Benilde.AdC for announcements and updates on the application schedule.

Who can apply to Graduate programs?

To apply to Graduate programs, you must be a college graduate. 

If you are applying to Master of Science in Tourism and Hospitality Management and your undergraduate degree is not related to hospitality or tourism, you will need to take 9 units of bridging subjects to be formally accepted into the program. These subjects are already included in your program flowchart once accepted.

If you’re applying to Doctor in Tourism and Hospitality Management and Doctor of Philosophy in Tourism and Hospitality Management by Research, you must be a master’s degree graduate in the same or related field from a recognized institution. 

If you are applying to Doctor in Tourism and Hospitality Management and you graduated with a non-thesis degree, you need to take 9 units of bridging subjects to be formally accepted into the program. These subjects are already included in your program flowchart once accepted.

Other graduate programs do not have required undergraduate degrees or bridging subjects.
