Student Cost of Living

With rent and every utility plus daily needs like food and toothpaste can be budgeted out to 420 USD per month. Which is quite a savings! International students find that living in the Philippines fulfills the desire to study more instead of working hard, although students can acquire part-time work through university stores and projects.

Cost of Tuition

When it comes to public universities in the country, students can average an amount that comes to $1,000 USD for a single academic year. Even the private institutions do not charge a high tuition fee which is what intentional students love most. Private tuition fees come to about $1,500 for a single academic year. This means that at a private university for a single semester a student will only spend around $750 USD.

On average for a whole year, a student could budget with, if their tuition cost was only $1,000 USD for the year, with $420 per month, a total of $6,040 USD to cover 12 months. This is extraordinary for international students who can’t really work full-time and can only work for a few months out of the year.

Languages Spoken in the Philippines

What languages are spoken in the Philippines? Well, there are over 180 languages spoken through the country, which creates a remarkable melting pot of diverse culture. Some of the languages spoken in the country are Filipino (which is a form of Tagalog), Spanish, English, Arabic, Persian, Sanskrit, Malay, Chinese, Japanese, and Nahuatl.

Students would do best to learn forms of Tagalog or Filipino, however, English is considered the second most used language in the Philippines. Learning Filipino can greatly impact a student’s options when it comes to applying for scholarships from a university in the Philippines.
