Hi Guys! I have received several messages and comments about this and lots of people are interested, also, I found another interesting thing..
I am providing you another option if you are located anywhere in the world except in the Philippines. My co-worker is already taking up hers and she is already in her 2nd level of this ladderized program.
Please check out — http://www.accaglobal.com/us/en.html, though it is a little bit costly as it would cost you around $131 for the registration and $115 for the exam, it is still very convenient for those people who wants to study and at the same time earn a living..
Everyone really desires to finish their college degree, and I am one of them.. I would really want to finish my course (BS Accountancy), however, if ever I would still pursue this, I have to stop working and concentrate on my studies.. We all know that Accountancy is never easy and one has to focus in order to understand each and every lesson.
I have several options in fulfilling my goal, I just have to decide which one is most beneficial for me.. One that would not compromise both my work and studies..
First option: Enter an Open University.
I have two prospects for this – UP and PUP. Though studying through an open university is the most convenient for me, the program choices are so limited. Either I’ll have Bachelor of Arts in Multimedia Studies at the University of the Philippines or take Bachelor of Science in Entrepreneurial Management at Polytechnic University of the Philippines.
Second option: Take the ETEEAP of CHED
ETEEAP or Expanded Tertiary Education Equivalency and Accreditation Program of CHED is an educational assessment scheme which recognizes knowledge, skill and prior learning attained by individuals from non-formal and informal educational experiences. I have to submit documents to prove that I have been working long enough and I have attained certain knowledge and skills relevant to the program I am applying for. Hmmm, the only problem with this is, how should the program go? Will it be typical classroom setup learning? I have to attend school regularly or a certain number of school days required?
Third option: Non-Traditional Studies Program
Almost the same with ETEEAP but this one is just offered at PUP. NTSP is a self-study program wherein the student’s educational background, work experiences, and achievements are evaluated and accredited through a rating system that leads to the completion of an undergraduate and graduate degree. Facilitators will just provide you the modules and other materials and you’ll have to do it on your own. So I am thinking this is almost the same as studying online?
Arrrrgghhh!!! I’m still undecided but I’m leaning towards option 3.. At least, if it is not the usual classroom setup, I won’t be tired at work.. Also, they have several courses offered, though, they don’t have BS Mathematics, at least they have BS Banking and Finance.. Numbers still ♥..
I guess I can only survive studying if there will be numbers involved.. Nope, not money, that would be a headache.. Numbers, meaning, equations and calculations.. It’s like playing scavenger hunt and I have to find the answers by using the formula provided..
Anyway, I have lots on my mind these past few days and this one added makes me want to puke to release all the stress.. Whew! One thing that gives me relief is to think that it is already Saturday—two days of rest, which I definitely will spend wisely—sleeping and eating.. Hahaha!
Well, If you are from the Philippines and an undergraduate, you may check the links below and see if you want to finish studies through them:
