Mixed Reactions on Oxford Philippines Society’s Statement that clarified Sen. Bongbong Marcos a ‘special diploma,’ not a degree

LionhearTVOctober 26, 2021

On October 22, the Oxford Philippines Society released a statement reiterating that Senator Marcos didn’t have a ‘degree’ in Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at Oxford University, but a ‘special diploma’ in Social Studies.

As a result, netizens started reacting to the news shared on social media.

Kapamilya network reporter Mike Navallo reposted the official statement coming from the Oxford University accredited group.

The business editor of the Philippine Daily Inquirer, Tina Dumlao Arceo, reiterated the statement of the Oxford Philippines Society.

Other netizens criticized the Senator’s camp for claiming that he graduated with a degree in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics.

Other netizens defended Marcos by presenting documents claiming that the Senator studied at Oxford University from 1975-1978.

They also attempted to disprove the Oxford Philippines Society in the process.

One netizen answered the claims of BBM supporters, noting that they weren’t criticizing his qualifications to hold a position.

They were criticizing his camp’s attempts of disinformation by publishing on the Senator’s resume that he had a degree in BA in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics from Oxford University.

Another netizen pointed out that the Oxford University itself hosted the Oxford Philippines Society’s page.

Earlier, Marcos’s spokesperson Vic Rodriguez claimed that the Senator has always been forthright about his ‘special diploma’ in social studies from Oxford.

However, according to reports from 2015 to 2016, Senator Marcos claimed that he held a Bachelor’s Degree in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics through his Senatorial profile and one of his interviews.

However, a Tiktok Video surfaced showing an interview with George Harrison, The Beatles lead Guitarist, recounting their band’s experience in 1986 during his father’s regime.
