In Demand / Popular Courses in the Philippines

For several years, Nursing and other medicine and health related courses consistently topped the list of Β the most popular or in demand courses in the Philippines.

However, with the Higher Education Indicators report recently released by the Commission on Higher Education, it seems that other fields have been catching up.

Below are the list of in demand courses in the Philippines starting from School Year 2008-2009 to present.

Please note that the lists above are only of popular courses in the Philippines that got the most number of enrollees for the last four years and does not automatically translate to courses with the most number of available jobs waiting for graduates.

    • Hi, Sunshine!

      From what we know, CHED issued an order temporarily stopping schools from offering new nursing programs a couple of years back. We’ve also read reports that some schools have been warned that they would be asked to close their nursing programs if they do not produce a satisfactory number of board passers; however, so far, we have not heard of any news about phasing out the nursing program altogether.

      As for the availability of jobs, unfortunately, we cannot confirm that for you as we’ve also read conflicting reports in the past. What we suggest is try to browse through the ads at job employment sites. They’re posted by employers and recruitment agencies themselves, so it can give you an idea of how many jobs are actually available for job seekers.


  6. HELLO im amiel sena….

    not okay: MATHEMATICS nd po ako magaling sa math. and hindi din po gaano sa english.

    but still engineering kinuha ko..ang mindset ko po ksi is saan ako uunlad..pero mali pala ung basihan na ganun..hirap tuloy ako ngayon.

    pwede nyo po b akong matulungan? please answer po.

    • Hi, Amiel!

      Have you considered taking up BS Business Administration major in Marketing before? It usually fits those who are good at selling products and services. It does have a couple of Math subjects, but they were reportedly not as difficult as other courses’. Marketing can also be flexible because you can work in any industry, so after you’ve acquired enough funds and experience, you might be able to use the things you’ll learn from it to start your own business — like a cafeteria, for example.

      Of course, that’s just a suggestion. In the end, it’s totally up to you to decide whether it’s going to work for you or not.

      Good luck! πŸ™‚
