Sounds exciting right? Stick around as we provide all the information you can use to get you started.
What Is the Fil-Global DIY Pathway?
The DIY pathway emerged out of Fil-Global’s interest to help all Filipinos who are yearning to go abroad for studies. The goal was to give everyone an equal chance in pursuing their dream career in their target destination.
The company recognizes the amount of money you need to put forward in processing a visa. Since not all have enough funds to use 100% of the services an agency provides, the new program offered exclusively by Fil-Global will give applicants some guidance at a budget price.
What Is Included in the DIY Package?
Expert Immigration Advice

Processing your student visa application will lead you to so many questions and can easily overwhelm you. But with the availability of immigration specialists, it’s easy to address any confusion.
Provision of Updated Immigration Forms
Access to updated immigration forms takes away part of your worries. Filling up the wrong forms can invalidate your application, so it’s crucial to use the right forms before anything else.
Guaranteed LOA/COE and scholarship issuance + discounts!
Securing admission to a program is easy peasy when you’re backed by agents from well-known immigration companies.
School placement agencies establish partnerships with institutions as a sign of trust and legitimacy. So, when students are enrolled through them, applicants are preferred and get to enjoy more benefits such as guaranteed LOA, tuition fee discounts, and even scholarship grants.
In many instances, certain prerequisites can also be waived as part of the agreement. You’d be surprised by the zero English testing requirement and higher age limits imposed!
