UPOU offers free online bridge courses

| Written by Arlyn VCD Palisoc Romualdo


True to the University as a public service institution, UP Open University (UPOU) will offer free online bridge courses in English and Mathematics for senior high school students, college freshmen, and all other interested individuals starting July 1.

The courses will be conducted in UPOU’s portal for massive open online courses, UPOU MODeL.

The initiative, tagged “Kahandaan, Kasanayan, at Kaalaman” (Readiness, Proficiency, and Knowledge), is a joint undertaking of the Faculty of Education and Ugnayan ng Pahinungod of UPOU. The latter was established in June 2019, following the revival of the Ugnayan ng Pahinungod/Oblation Corps program, the University’s volunteer service program, as a UP System unit. The program had previously been devolved to UP’s constituent universities.
