In an effort to continuously support the Filipino and non-Filipino community in the Middle East, the Filipino Institute is all set to adopt a new learning system, which means that they are now accredited to offer affordable programs from nursery, primary, secondary, to tertiary via face-to-face, homeschooling, and blending learning schemes.
Filipino Institute Founder and President Gabriel John Rimando said that he, along with his team, has revised and expanded the academic curriculum to offer Filipinos and non-Filipinos affordable and high-quality education after securing international accreditation from various organizations.
“Most of the families here in the UAE sent their kids back home to further study, however, with this program, this will alleviate the burden of the guardians because of our affordable education,” he said.
“Migrant kids don’t need to go back home and be away from their family members,” he further added.
With its geographical location, Filipino Institute Dubai campus is conveniently located in Al Rigga, the heart of Deira.
For nursery and primary programs, Rimando said that students may opt for this through homeschooling and that they will get documents certified by the Department of Education (DepEd):
He added that they have recently gotten the green light from the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) which now allows them to offer the following programs through face-to-face or e-learning systems:
|1||Basic Courses||Grade 9|
|2||Intermediate Courses||Grade 10|
|3||Advanced Courses||Grade 11|
|4||Professional Diploma||Grade 12|
|5||Advanced Professional |
|1st Year College||High School Diploma|
|6||Associate Degree/Diploma||2nd Year College||High School Diploma|
|7||Advanced Diploma||3rd Year College||High School Diploma|
|8||Bachelor’s Degree||4th Year College||High School Diploma|
|9||Advanced Graduate Diploma||MBA||Bachelor’s Degree|
|10||Doctoral Degree||Doctoral Degree||MBA Diploma|
Those who will graduate from the first level until the ninth shall receive a document attested by the KHDA and can be attested by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) which is undertaken to prove the genuineness of the certificate, and can be used for visa application and work promotion purposes. Learners can take this program on modular or on full-term. The modular program is designed for those working individuals, while the full-term program is structured for those who are full-fledged learners.
“Those who were not able to finish college and are planning to pursue it will be given a chance to complete it here,” he said noting that achieving a bachelor’s degree signifies more work opportunities.
The new program will take effect in August, however, the modular program will start ‘very soon.’
“Good thing about those who have taken previous courses in the Filipino Institute can use it for our ladderized learning,” he said.
Meanwhile, for the doctoral degree, the Filipino Institute, an internationally accredited institution, has partnered with a top university in the Philippines to offer Filipinos in the Middle East the highest university degree that is conferred after a course of study.
It will be initially offered in Dubai, and according to Rimando, campuses in Al Ain, Abu Dhabi, Qatar, and Bahrain will gradually adopt the same system in the coming months.
Among its advantage over other leading institutions is its college matriculation which is just comparatively 1/3 of the educational expenditure.
“We offer exceptional value for learners looking for a great education at an affordable price,” Rimando said.
