OFFICIALS of Filipino education placement agency, Paradise International Education Consultancy (PIEC), have just completed a tour in the country to help students who wanted to study overseas.
PIEC executive consultant, Jensen Chow, visited Alotau, Buka, Rabaul, Lae, Mt Hagen and Goroka between March 9-16 to conduct information sessions on how to go to high school or university in the Philippines.
In 2012, more than 50 students from PNG started university studies in Cebu City, the second largest city in the Philippines, enrolling at six different university campuses, and prospective students have more than 50 high schools and universities from which to choose.
In this new school year, PIEC will help 150 more PNG students complete their education in the Phililipines.
The Filipino academic year runs from June to March the following year.
Parents can budget K20,000 to K25,000 to cover a year’s tuition at a reputable institution, food, board, uniform, school supplies, laptop, groceries, a mobile phone, daily allowance, and our facilitation fee.
PIEC has so far worked with the Office of Higher Education, the Autonomous Bougainville Government and Bougainville External Education Services (BEES).
Just last week, President Momis and the Bougainville executive council sent a K75,000 subsidy for Bougainville students in Philippines .
Through PIEC’s facilitation services, per student all-inclusive annual expenses are less than K20,000.
PIEC provides PNG students the opportunity to take advantage of the world class education offered by schools in the Philippines.
