It’s getting late but I am not yet sleepy, currently counting days to my graduation. Just earlier I had my graduation pictorial and just cleared almost 95% of my requirements and I am definitely on my way to it. The feeling is surreal, I can’t imagine how long the journey was and I am finally marching this May, I am still hyper and overwhelmed right now so let me use my energy to create something that might be very useful and a life changer to some.
This is going to be long, but if you want to finish your school without leaving your job or sacrificing all the time that was left to you after your work then bear with me, this article is for you.
Four years back, I called my uncle who was a Professor and told him that I want a diploma but I don’t have time to go back to college but I have some savings for school, he told me that my only way was to go back to school. Now, I have some money in my pocket but literally don’t have time, so I thought there must be some way for professionals to finish their studies without going through all the regular students’ work.
I started searching for Open Universities and alternative education program but nothing fits to what exactly I am looking for. I can’t commit to open universities because of the demanding nature of my work plus it can get too expensive and there will be too many subjects which will take longer to finish for someone who doesn’t have the luxury of time.
(You might think I am looking for a shortcut, which is kind of true but I’d say that the best word for it is “perfect alternative” because I am supporting my family and my siblings’ schooling, I also wanted to work on my career path and growth, while at the same time juggling all my musings like maintaining this blog, taking care of my travel bug bite and my much-needed photo walks and sartorial gigs from time to time.)
It took me a while of researching about school programs before I stumbled upon Expanded Tertiary Education Equivalency and Acceleration Program (ETEEAP).
What is ETEEAP?
Ang sagot sa mga gustong makapag tapos ng pagaaral pero walang sapat na time, dahil may work, family, friends, aura at lovelife :). At para sa mga na reject sa work at promotion dahil hindi degree holder. Char lang pero totoo!
