Studying abroad can be very expensive. Most students are set aback with the fees involved especially when it comes to school tuition. It usually is a one-time bulk payment, and this comes with the issuance of an acceptance letter from the college. If you are caught off guard, you can never proceed with your application and a lot can change once there are delays with your student visa processing. Fees are an important thing to consider before even starting with your program. Since there are various options once you become a Fil-Global member, we encourage you to get a one-on-one consultation instead of just attending a generic orientation. A personalized student plan will help you choose a program that fits your needs, budget, and any other preferences. While you’re thinking of which course interests you, let me help you discover budget-friendly Fil-Global programs currently offered with our international school partners.
