MANILA, Philippines — The camp of presidential aspirant and former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. maintained on Saturday that he never misrepresented his Oxford education.

“We stand by the Degree confirmation which was issued by the University of Oxford. It is up to anyone to question or challenge this with the said university if they so please,” Marcos’ chief of staff Atty. Victor Rodriguez said in a statement.

“Presidential aspirant Bongbong Marcos has always been forthright on his conferment of a special diploma in social studies by the distinguish[ed] university and has never misrepresented his Oxford education,” he added.

Rodriguez issued the statement after the Oxford Philippines Society said Friday that Marcos Jr., son of the late former president Ferdinand E. Marcos, did not obtain a degree from the university.

The group said it is concerned with the misinformation on Marcos’ education, noting that what he got from the said university was a special diploma which they stressed “is not a degree.”

In a 2015 interview, Marcos also said he had attended Oxford University in the United Kingdom.

“To set the record straight, my educational record as posted in the Senate website and in my own official website is accurate… I earned a diploma in political science at St Edmund Hall, Oxford University in England in 1978,” he earlier said.
