Philippines School Year & US Academic Term Comparison

August 1st, 2010

Naisipan kong magaral ulit dito sa US. At alam kong madami sa inyo ang nag aral sa Pinas, tapos naisipan din magpatuloy ng pagaaral dito sa America. Sa mga nakagawa na nito, malamang hindi na kayo nalilito. Pero sa mga baguhan, gaya ko nalilito pa din ako sa mga seasons and kelan ba talaga nagsisimula ang school year? Nakikita ko sa mga forms, When do you plan to enroll? Fall? Spring? Ta*na ni hindi ko nga alam kelan mga yan. So research ako… and the best way para ma-picture ko sa utak ko, was to make some kind of chart.

USA Philippines School Year Academic Term Calendar Comparison

Kung nakakalito ‘yan, Ito mga important na dapat maalala:

  • School starts in August or September in the United States. It starts in June in the Philippines.
  • The US will have it’s Winter Break as the next long break. In the Philippines, you will have the semestral break in October and after that it is the 2nd term already. And this 2nd semester will have a Christmas vacation in the middle of the term.
  • The Philippines will have a Summer Vacation which ends the school year in March. While in the US, January to June is just your second term and there is a Spring Break in the middle. Then Summer Vacation starts in June.
  • Summer vacation in the Philippines seems longer than in the US, but breaks in the US seem longer than the Philippines.

The months above sa image, this is plus or minus some weeks to a month. Depende talaga sa school. Actually baka nga mali pa ang pagkaresearch ko. Magsisimula pa lang ako ng MBA ko this September. So malalaman ko pa lang if tama ito. If mali and alam mo ang tama, baka pwede ka magiwan ng comment explaining the corrections.
