Online Courses in the Philippines


 

Online courses are any courses, regardless whether they come with credits or not, that can be taken by students at any location of their choice by accessing the internet. Online courses are typically short, usually lasting for several days to a few months. Most of these online courses are courses that can be taken as  a pastime or as a source of additional knowledge and does not necessarily hold any merit when it comes to seeking employment.

There are open universities in the Philippines, however, that offer degree programs that can be taken in parts or in its entirety online.

Most of these are post-graduate degree programs that are targeted towards working professionals who do not have enough time to juggle work and education, but you can also find some universities that offer both undergraduate and associate degree programs.

Below are some samples of schools and institutions that offer courses that you can take online:

    Thanks,

    Cams

    • Hi, idanceforgod!

      So far, we haven’t seen any official restrictions when it comes to students that are currently enrolled in an undergraduate course who also want to take some short or online courses on the side. Different schools may have different policies, though, so it’s best if you’ll contact the school you are thinking of enrolling at so they can give you an accurate and more detailed response.

  14. i want to enroll for online study. can u give me an advice what should i do ??…. im from makati ..

    • Hi, Jane!

      That would depend on what kind of course/s you want to take online and where you intend to study. If you intend to take a degree program, you might want to check out the different open universities that offer distance learning in the Philippines. You can find the exact procedure on how to enroll and what the requirements are on their respective websites.

      If you intend to take short courses, on the other hand, there’s TESDA that offer several online courses that you can take for free. http://www.e-tesda.gov.ph/ (You can find the steps on how to take the courses online on the site). A quick internet search could also give you a sizable list of companies that offer short courses for a fee; however, you might want to be careful of bogus companies.
