The Most Expensive and Most Affordable Universities in Mindanao

Budget is one of the most important factors that parents consider when they send their children to school. Sometimes, even if you badly want to study in a specific university, it still has to be within the family budget.

Being the good daughter and son that you are, it would be a big help to your parents if you can give them school options that match their financial capabilities but that would also fit your preferences. Remember that aside from budget, you should still make sure that the school has programs, activities, and other factors that you would learn from and enjoy.
