This is a complete list of Philippine Presidents by college education that consists of the 14 heads of state in the history of the Philippines.

Almost all Presidents (except Emilio Aguinaldo and Joseph Estrada) completed a college degree program. College and postgraduate degrees have prepared Presidents in their future role as head of state, architect of foreign policy, commander-in-chief of the armed forces, and manager of the entire government bureaucracy.

In legal theory, under the Philippine Constitution, any Filipino citizen aged 40 and above who can read and write and can meet residency requirements is eligible to run as President.

In practice, popularity, political machinery, and financial resources are the elements which can make or break a Presidential Candidate.
