About this type of programme: 

When you choose a long-term  programme like this, you commit yourself to getting to know the culture of the country where you are going to. Studying will take considerable time, but you will also have lots of time to explore the area around you, to meet with the locals, and get a deep sense of their values and way of living. Through this programme, you are allowing yourself time to truly integrate, become a part of the local community and get a daily life that is very similar to the one of the local people around you.

When it comes to your area of study, there are many possibilities to choose from. AFS Philippines has a network of over 150 universities in many different regions of the country, and they will match you with the one best suited for you.


On this programme, you should not expect to be surrounded by other international volunteers. They might be in the same country on the same programme, but maybe not at the same university, or even not in the same city. You will meet other volunteers from time to time, but your primary contacts will be within the local community.


Host family is one of the closest people you will have while on programme – they will be your family, that might take you to Sunday lunches with the grandmother, but also can ask you to clean and cook, as they do. They might want to show you around their country and take you on trips, but they might also want you to come back home by 10 pm, if they ask the same of their children. You should expect that every host family is different and has their own rules and way of living. You can look forward to getting an intimate and a close insight into a life, that might be so completely different from yours.


Besides from your host family, you will have a local contact person, who will be your support with anything that you would need, from practical questions and needs, to cultural tips and advice.
