Filipino Students from outside the Metro and around the world may apply; CIIT SHS to offer ODL until AY 2022-2023

Looking to get your Senior High education in creative work or coding? Have an interest in digital arts or animation? Whether you’re located outside of Metro Manila or living overseas, CIIT is here to help you pursue the pathway you have a passion for. With the new normal, we’ve had to drastically change the way we live our lives. We’ve been challenged to continue on with work or school while giving greater priority to our health and safety in the current circumstances. Of course, with challenges comes the need to make adjustments. As online learning has become a necessity, we’ve decided to reach out and open our school to the world.

With CIIT offering Online Distance Learning (ODL) for the next two years, our classes are now more accessible to Filipino students living outside of Metro Manila or abroad. Check out our courses and apply for enrollment to start G11 for AY 2021- 2022 until you finish G12 in AY 2022-2023.

With the help of our self-service site, the CIIT Admissions Online System (COAST), you can enjoy an easy and hassle-free application process. This secure platform is where you’ll be able to upload your documents, choose your payment options and schedule your entrance exam. Through this, you can complete your application efficiently and easily; you could even start it after you finish this article!

At CIIT, you’ll get a hands-on education where you can choose to specialize in either Visual Arts, Animation, or Programming. While the shift to ODL was not easy, we’ve continued to do our best in offering you a quality learning experience, all of which you’ll be able to enjoy from the comforts of your own home. We make sure that our instructors are digitally competent and well-equipped to handle your online classes, in addition to their expertise in the subject they will be teaching.

Online learning can be challenging and we want to give you the proper support. Aside from ensuring you a manageable study load, you’ll also be provided with coaching and mentoring sessions that give you personalized feedback from your instructors. Being able to assist you in balancing your studies with your responsibilities at home is our priority. Our fees have also been reduced to make CIIT more accessible and affordable to you without compromising the quality of your education. 

On top of that, you’ll be able to access a range of online learning tools. Manage your enrollment, review your lessons and submit assignments with the help of platforms like Edusuite and Canvas. As long as you are a student of CIIT, you’ll also be given genuine, personal licenses to creative software like Adobe CC, Toon Boom, Autodesk, and Unity. These software licenses are made accessible to you upon enrollment and inclusive of your tuition fee.

Along with quality technical education, you’ll be part of a close-knit community that welcomes creators from all walks of life. Academics don’t encompass the whole of your student life and we want to give you opportunities to explore beyond the classroom. As we put great value on freedom of expression, we strive to provide you with a safe space that encourages imagination and innovation. We’re a diverse community that welcomes collaborations of all kinds, weaving together the principles of Art and tech. Take part in one of our clubs and find others who share in your interests whether it be music, theater, multimedia arts, programming, or even gaming. 

Whether our campus is a few minutes or a plane ride or two away from your home, we welcome you to share our classroom and build connections with your fellow Filipino students from all around the world.
