Message From President


Dear Prospective Students,


Universitas Pelita Harapan (UPH) Surabaya which was established in 2008, is a young, dynamic, and a progressive higher education institution in Surabaya, East Java. We were founded by Yayasan Pendidikan Pelita Harapan from a visionary beginning and is now moving on to new heights as a Global Campus with Christian foundation and consistently underlining the vision of “True Knowledge, Faith in Christ, and Godly Character”.



Yayasan Pendidikan Pelita Harapan supports a 23-year-old educational tradition (since 1994), and with the commitment to quality education. UPH Surabaya became the second link in Yayasan Pendidikan Pelita Harapan’s excellent education tradition followed by UPH Medan which was established in 2014.


UPH Surabaya believes that the future of our country and humanity will depend on well-educated, strong leaders, and graduates with Godly character who are professional and skilled in their respective fields and dedicated to serving God and others. We take pride in graduates who can accomplish not only personal achievements but also greater goods for humanity.


UPH Surabaya graduates have been well received by other universities and major corporations both in Indonesia and in other countries; and we are proud of the fact that many of our graduates have chosen to become entrepreneurs, establishing their own businesses or professional services.



I welcome you all to UPH Surabaya where learning is fun and an excellent education is open to you.


Welcome to UPH, a smart and global campus.


Jonathan Parapak
UPH President
