It’s one thing to study medicine and health care, and another to practice it with a commitment to nurturing life. Since 1979, the De La Salle Medical and Health Sciences Institute (DLSMHSI) has been training future medical and health allied professionals in the country who will do exactly that—lead a life of faith and service through providing excellent health care.
With its state-of-the-art learning facilities and its very own hospital and research center, namely the DLSU Medical Center (DLSUMC) and DLS Angelo King Medical Research Center (DLS AKMRC) respectively, students get to enjoy a conducive learning environment that can help set them up for a career in the medical field.
Through its recently announced partnership with Bukas, students can now have access, not just to top notch facilities, but also to affordable, quality education. Here’s how.
Making medicine and health sciences accessible
DLSMHSI has always been on the lookout for opportunities to provide students with financial assistance. In fact, the medical school proudly offers the biggest scholarship program for qualified and deserving medical students in the Philippines. Think tuition, housing, books, and food allowance! That said, partnering with Bukas is yet another way for the school to support our future doctors and medical practitioners. That could be you!
With this new partnership, all undergraduate and graduate students at DLSMHSI now have more options to pay for their studies. All programs and year levels included, no minimum grade requirement too. Read more to learn about this new payment option:
What is a Bukas tuition installment plan?
A Bukas tuition installment plan, or simply a student loan, is a safe, secure, and flexible way to pay for your tuition. When you choose to pay with Bukas, we can cover up to 100% of your tuition for the semester while you pay back the amount in 12 monthly installments. Take note that every installment plan comes with a flat interest rate starting at only 1.5% monthly interest and a one-time 3% service fee.
You also have the option to pay off your student loan earlier than 12 months without any early termination fees or other penalties. We only charge interest for the months you consume your student loan so managing your fees is flexible to you and your finances!
How does the Bukas tuition installment plan work?
When you apply and get approved for an installment plan, Bukas will pay your tuition directly to DLSMHSI. You will then have to pay your Bukas monthly dues for 12 months. For example, if you need Php 50,000 for your tuition next semester, you can get an installment plan from Bukas and pay only Php 5,042 every month.
