Mandaue City Councilor Malcolm Sanchez, Chairman of the Committee on Education, talks to the nine students who were affected by the closure of the Mandaue City College’s Bachelor of Science in Social Work program.

MANDAUE CITY, Philippines — A total of nine students who were affected by the closure of the Bachelor of Science in Social Work program of the Mandaue City College received financial assistance from the city government on Tuesday, July 13, 2021.

Angana said the financial assistance is good for one school year.

Currently, the students are in their third year in Cebu Bradford School Incorporated.

Angana said when the program was closed they have searched for schools that will credit the subjects they have taken at MCC.
