International Trainee Network and Bukas Partnership makes upfront payment lighter


Several tertiary institutions in the Philippines offer international internship opportunities for their college students to experience new cultures and explore global opportunities. In the Philippines, one of the organizations that offer such opportunities is the International Trainee Network (ITN). Some of the well-known institutions in the Philippines such as the De La Salle University and the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde have partnered with ITN to ensure smooth and seamless access to these life-changing experiences.

To make the journey easier, ITN has forged a strategic partnership with financial education assistance provider, Bukas. This collaboration aims to make cultural immersion and learning opportunities more accessible and empowering than ever before.

Creating international learning experiences

ITN has a rich history of enabling students to embark on transformative experiences abroad. With a deep commitment to providing exceptional opportunities for growth and personal development, ITN has successfully sent countless students and graduates with experience in internships across the United States. ITN has built strong partnerships with hotels and corporations to facilitate unparalleled learning and skill-building opportunities in the hospitality and business industries.

The Bukas - ITN partnership

ITN's collaboration with Bukas brings an exciting twist to the journey of studying or interning abroad. Bukas, a leading tuition installment plan provider, offers flexible payment options designed to ease the financial burden on students and their families. By choosing Bukas as their payment method, students can unlock a range of benefits, including affordable monthly payments and interest rates that suit their individual needs. Note that every tuition plan comes with an interest starting at 3% monthly, and a 6% one-time service fee.
