The “Higher Education Act of 1994” from the Philippines establishes as a general strategy for the Filipino Higher Education the modernization and internationalization of their operations by identifying, supporting and developing “potential centers of excellence in program areas needed for the development of world-class scholarship, nation building and national development.” (section 8, f).

This activity is fully in line with such strategy as it seeks to enhance the curricular offerings of the Partner Country HEIs taking into account the Bologna process; to encourage the faculty and students of the Partner Country HEIs to enhance their multilingual research skills by studying Spanish, at the very least: and lowers the transaction cost of researching in Spanish by giving the faculty these HEIs a working knowledge of the Spanish legal system, laws, jurisprudence and databases.
