In the Philippines, many international students originate from East Asian countries, especially China, Korea, and Taiwan, as indicated by UNESCO.
Despite many international students studying in global hubs like the US, UK, Germany, France, Australia, and Japan, the Philippines has also become an attractive educational destination. A Korean university student, Kwon Ka-young, who studied English and volunteered in the Philippines, stated that her study experience there enhanced her English skills and enriched her global perspective. Similarly, an increasing number of students from countries like America, Korea, Taiwan, and China are opting to pursue their education in the Philippines.
So, why do approximately 5,000 international students choose to study in the Philippines? Few Asian countries can compete with the Philippines in providing quality education in an engaging environment. Being the world’s third-largest English-speaking nation with a 93.9% literacy rate, the Philippines offers comprehensive knowledge resources, modern instruction, and a diverse learning environment. It hosts numerous ISO-certified universities and 275 higher education institutions recognized as Centers of Excellence and Development. Several international schools provide curricula based on American, British, German, Chinese, French, and Japanese educational models.
The business and accounting programs in the Philippines adhere to the US’s GAAP and IFRS, and its engineering and marine schools are recognized by the APEC Engineer Registry and International Maritime Organization's white list. Students can expect high-quality training from over 115,000 teachers with master’s and doctorate degrees.
In addition to providing high-quality education, the Philippines offers foreign students ample recreation opportunities. Beyond their rigorous academic commitments, students can enjoy many outdoor activities in pristine beach settings, heritage sites showcasing Asian and European architecture, and other tourist spots. Students can enjoy luxurious amenities at five-star hotels, restaurants, entertainment venues, shopping malls, and cafes.
The Philippines is renowned for its hospitable and joyful citizens. Visitors are often impressed by the warm welcome they receive. The local festivals, reflecting the country’s rich and diverse culture and traditions, are a major attraction for foreign students. Kwon Ka-young shared her fascination with the week-long Filipino festivals, as Korean festivals typically last only two or three days. She enjoyed festivals like Ati-than, where Koreans and Filipinos united in celebration, dancing, singing, and even drinking.
Furthermore, studying in the Philippines is comparatively more affordable than other countries offering high-quality education. A moderate lifestyle can be maintained on a monthly budget of US$350 to US$500.
Based in Goodyear, Arizona, the UAA program typically spans one year, culminating with graduates emerging as certified flight instructors. Post-graduation, students engage in a 5-6 year journey of amassing flight hours and achieving top-tier certifications, eventually qualifying to pilot larger aircraft for United Airlines. Dana Donati, CEO of the academy, clarifies that UAA's mission isn't to replace an aviation degree but to determine the optimal training environment for student success.
In support of this endeavour, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) emphasized the need to rethink recruitment strategies for the next generation. An example of this forward-thinking approach was the FAA's 2022 allocation of $5 million in funding for high school aviation classes, fostering an early interest in aviation careers. Despite these innovative measures, the FAA remains committed to ensuring pilots possess the qualifications for safe aircraft operation.
