A group of Filipino students and alumni of the University of Oxford has come out to say that presidential aspirant Ferdinand Marcos Jr. had no degree from the prestigious foreign learning institution.

In a statement, Oxford Philippines Society expressed concern over what it called “continuing misinformation” as regards the former senator’s academic achievements.

“We, members of the Oxford Philippines Society, are concerned with the continuing misinformation relating to the academic qualifications of Ferdinand “Bongbong” Romualdez Marcos, Jr.,” the group said on Twitter.

“Bongbong Marcos did not obtain a Degree from Oxford, as confirmed by the University itself,” it added.

The group said the purpose of their statement is “to set out the facts concerning Marcos’ claims about his tenure at Oxford University.”

“We are making this statement in aid of public discourse in a time where disinformation and fake news are prevalent,” it added.

GMA News Online has reached out to Marcos’ camp for comment but has yet to receive any as of posting time.

The group, composed of 200 Filipino students and alumni of Oxford University in England, said Marcos did not finish his Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy, Politics, and Economic degree.

It said the university so confirmed in 2015.

The group said the presidential aspirant also failed his degree’s preliminary examinations at his first attempt.

It also stated that Marcos was awarded with a Special Diploma in Social Studies in 1978.

“A Special Diploma is not a course of higher education leading to an undergraduate or first degree or even a master’s degree,” the Oxford Philippine Society said in a statement. -NB, GMA News
