Fashion Intern PH: The Fast Paced Trimester System

Recently, I have been given the opportunity to be 'Fashion Intern PH Campus Ambassador' for De La Salle University. And we were given our first writing assignment.

How about the universities who advanced their way to the top and deviate from the normal school calendar? A few colleges and universities in the Philippines follow a trimester system; known of them is De La Salle University and De La Salle- College of St. Benilde.

Following a trimester calendar is not just a pain for finances to the parents but also the pace of studying a subject within 3, sometimes less than 4 months to the students. Different courses, different difficulties. Basically, on a trimester, subjects were taken at 18 units max so it is less than the 27-32 units load on a semester. Of course, it is a variation of hard and easy subjects combined for students not to be burdened by their load.
