January 5, 2013 4:40pm

Overseas Filipino workers in Hong Kong and their children stand to benefit from affordable education with the relaunching of the University of the Philippines Open University program there, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said.
 
The DFA said OFWs attended the UPOU orientation seminars at the Philippine Consulate General in Hong Kong in November last year.
 
"Established in 1995, the UPOU is one of a handful of open universities in the region that have maximized the power of web-based technologies for teaching and learning," the DFA said.
 
It said UPOU is confident this time that with advances in information and communication technology, earning a UP degree is now "more attainable than ever before."
 
"At only P1,000 per unit, quality education is now affordable especially for overseas Filipinos," it said. - VVP, GMA News
