Youths from Marawi resume studies in Makati

Seven students displaced by the clashes in Marawi City have taken the offer made by the University of Makati (UMak) to continue their studies in the city-run institution.

While classes already started on June 19, UMak’s admission office remains open for transferees from Marawi and children of slain soldiers.

“We welcome students from Marawi who would like to pursue their college education as scholars of the city government,” Mayor Abby Binay said on Wednesday.

Two of the seven transferees have enrolled as junior and sophomore students taking up management accounting. The rest are completing their enrollment as a Grade 11 senior high school student, a freshman taking up information technology service management, a civil engineering junior, and two management accounting juniors.

Considering their predicament, interested transferees from Marawi are not required to submit their school credentials right away.

An endorsement from their local government or any documents proving they studied or came from Marawi will be accepted in the meantime.
