Online Courses in the Philippines

Online courses are any courses that can be taken by students at any location of their choice by accessing the internet.

Most of them can be taken as  a pastime or as a source of additional knowledge and usually don’t come with certificates that prove that the student had completed the course; however, there are also an increasing number of courses that could lead to undergraduate and postgraduate degrees upon the completion of the program.

Depending on the course, courses may take anywhere from a couple of days to a couple of years to complete.


Below are some examples of online courses that you can take in the Philippines.


Please note that while the courses on the links that have been provided below are categorized as “online courses,” few of them can be taken entirely online. Some courses do require occasional face-to-face meetings either for evaluation purposes or in according to existing government directives. To kn0w which courses can be taken completely online and which courses would require face-to-face meetings, we strongly suggest you contact the schools. institutions, agencies, or organizations offering the said courses.

    • Hi, Lucenda!

      Try to check out the articles on the page below. They have not been updated for some time now, but those organizations / companies typically offer post-graduate scholarship programs every year. You will find the admission requirements in the individual articles, although you might want to check with the scholarship sponsors if there have been any changes to their requirements or the application procedures.


  25. Dear All,

    Online courses in the Philippines with US Certifications are now available.This was just recently approved by a California Based company with the objective to propagate digital literacy in the Philippines.

    Visit the site:

  26. I need more information about Tesda courses who offered scholarships….

  27. Good day, your site is great and comes with very good and informative topics. I just would like to know the difference between NTSP and ETEEAP? .. Im puzzled
    which step to take if I should take NTSP or ETEEAP. My highest educational attainment would high school as I am not able to finish few units and finish a semester.
    I have a 7 year supervisory experience. Much appreciated responce.

    • Hi, Jacquem!

      Thank you.

      We’re not really familiar with how NTSP works, but based on what we read from PUP’s description of their NTSP program,, it seems that NTSP has higher requirements compared to ETEEAP. Also, NTSP students seem to study on their own for the most part while ETEEAP students have both traditional and online classes. That’s just from what we understand, though. We’re not really sure about the specifics, so it’s still best if you’ll contact the universities that offer the said programs directly so they can give you a more accurate and detailed response.

      For the meantime, you may want to check out the article below for an idea or two.

    • 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.

  35. 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. (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.
