Registration is now open for Academic Year 2012-2013.

Be one of the first Filipinos to attend Grade 11 and to have a career before going to college!


Welcome to The Manila Times College School of Journalism, the only school of journalism that offers a Junior College for high school graduates who want to become professional journalists even without a college degree.

The Manila Times College is a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Manila Times, the Philippines’ oldest newspaper.

The Manila Times College, in cooperation with Asia-Pacific College, Don Bosco Technical Institute, and the Business Processing Association of the Philippines, also prepares its students to pursue a career other than journalism in a business processing outsourcing company, such as a call center, a medical transcription facility, or a publishing company.

The Manila Times College has an excellent record of having its A.B. Journalism graduates employed in major media networks within two months of graduation.  Our record is comforting enough to say that you will have an excellent chance of being gainfully employed before you go to college or while you are going to college.

These are the admission requirements:

  1. You must be a high school graduate.  (Submit a certified copy of your diploma and transcript of records.)
  2. You must have good health.  (Submit a medical certificate from any of the following hospitals:  The Manila Times College Subic, Asian, Cardinal Santos, Chinese General, FEU-NRMF, Makati Medical, Manila Doctors, Medical Center Manila, Medical City, Ospital ng Maynila, Philippine General Hospital, San Juan de Dios, St. Luke’s, UERMM, UST.)
  3. Your English proficiency must be above average.  (Submit a three-page essay on the topic: “Why I Want To Be a Journalist.”)
  4. You must be willing to spend a lot of time and energy to keep the public informed about the truth.  (Submit a letter of recommendation from one of your teachers or from your pastor or priest, attesting to your good moral character.)
  5. Your parents or guardians must know about your ambition to be a journalist.  (Since you are not yet 18 years old, your parents or guardians will have to sign a waiver allowing the school to assign you to different places in Metro Manila to gather news.  The school will exert every effort, of course, to keep you safe while you are doing on-the-job training.)
