Philippine Universities Tuition Comparison

By Dana Jane Naval


College isn’t just about choosing an in-demand degree program and a good school with quality professors, high-technology facilities and all that stuff. You also have to consider the cost of your four-year(or more)-stay in this vast world. You don’t want to make momsie and popsie work 24 hours a day just to compensate your school expenses. With growing economic crisis all over the world, it is advisable for incoming college freshies like you to choose a school with an affordable tuition fee without sacrificing the quality of education it offers. So before you make any pen marks on the application form and before you draw any penny out of the purse for the non-refundable examination fee to take up the entrance exam of the University of your choice, check-out this table of tuition fees. Remember, there are many doors but you only have one key. Find out where it fits.

  9. What are the tuition costs for foreign students?

    In many countries (Canada, the US), colleges charge foreign students a higher rate of tuition, sometimes twice as much as citizens. Do universities in the Philippines do the same? Or do foreigners pay the same tuition as Filipinos?
