ENROLMENT IN EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS
In light of reports of OFWs being enticed to enrolling in supposed Open Universities that claim to be affiliated with the United Nations (UN), the Philippine Embassy in Phnom Penh advises members of the Filipino community in Cambodia to exercise prudence and extra caution when considering enrollment in learning institutions in Cambodia and nearby countries. Some institutions offer vocational education and training for diploma courses, higher education for degree courses (undergraduate and graduate), distance learning programs such as Open Universities, among others.
It is best to first verify the credentials of such learning institutions with local and national authorities. In Cambodia, the relevant authorities are the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports and the Ministry of Labor and Vocational Training.
For institutions claiming affiliation with regional and international organizations, the public is advised to inquire directly with said organizations.
