Why Study in the Philippines?
The Philippines may be the best-kept secret of southeast Asia. With a unique mix of Malay and Chinese cultures with Spanish and American influences, this nation of over 7,000 islands is like nowhere else in the world. The Filipino people are warm and welcoming, with an eager sense of humor. Many Filipinos speak English and have ties to other countries, so it’s easy for students from abroad to find a place for themselves. The beaches, highlands, and countryside are breathtakingly beautiful, and the cities are stunningly diverse—which is only fitting for this crossroads of cultures. World Endeavors students may find the Philippines to be the perfect spot for an adventure they’ve never imagined.
The Value of Studying Abroad
Studying abroad is one of the best choices students can make to deepen their studies and expand their worldview. It’s a chance to learn new ways to think, to meet new friends from around the world, and to be immersed in a new culture or in some cases even a new language. Students who go abroad have access to art, scenery, historical sites, and cultural events that can’t be found at home. No matter what they study, students will find going abroad to be an education in thinking across cultures and adapting to new experiences. And for many, studying abroad is the spark that ignites a lifelong passion for international travel and cultural exploration.
