Are there distance learning schools based in the Philippines?

We Answered:

Distance learning schools in the Philippines usually operate on a modular program basis, wherein self-instructional modules are given for home study, while assignments have to be submitted and examinations physically taken on campus.

Degree programs have to be accredited by the Commission on Higher Education ( As of this date, only the following schools offer distance learning degree programs:

Russell Said:

I want to enroll in distance learning and i am working in Saudi Arabia pls let me know some schools available.?

We Answered:

You might want to try the University of Southern Queensland in Australia. I am studying at USQ online and I've had a few fellow students in my classes studying from Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

USQ will provide an exam centre near where you live. That won't be a problem. And they offer a wide range of degrees from undergraduate to graduate.

Check them out here:…

I have also completed a BS online through Excelsior College in the USA: This college is the oldest distance education provider in the USA and is regionally accredited.

All Australian universities have Australian government accreditation. The Australian government does not permit for a non-accredited university to operate in Australia.

If you have any questions about what it's like studying at USQ, or Excelsior College, send me an email.

Hope this helps.

Rosemary Said:

Are there any online/distance learning schools that offer IB program?

We Answered:

No. Unfortunately, IB requirements won't allow it.

However, if you're in high school, you could focus on AP courses. I'm not familiar enough with online programs to know which ones offer them, but that would be what to look for.

Discuss It!
