Mar 24, 2016
Stars like Anne Curtis, Kathryn Bernardo, and Coleen Garcia believe it is never too late to go back to school.

When you start your career in showbiz young, there will be a moment where you have to choose between studies and career.

With tight shooting schedules along with endorsement events, TV guestings, and other commitments, career weighs in more even if the celebrity would want to go the other way.

But these celebrities have shown that even if it seems "too late" to take up where they left off in school, education has no deadline.

If she didn't end up an actress, Anne sees herself as a preschool teacher.

"That's where my heart is," she said back in 2013 when she found the opportunity to study English Literature and eventually Education at the Open University program of a school in Australia.

Kim Chiu

One of the busiest stars of her generation, Kim still wants to finish her studies.

It was revealed last year in Giselle Sanchez's online column on Manila Bulletin that Kim enrolled in University of the Philippines Diliman Open University, in which she's taking up Business Management.


Kathryn Bernardo

While the Kapamilya Teen Queen was busy shooting Got To Believe back in 2013, Kathryn managed to squeeze in time for her course, Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, major in Marketing, at Enderun Colleges.

Talk about multi-tasking, Kathryn was taping and at the same time studying.

Coleen Garcia

Early this year, Coleen was thrilled to announce that she will be returning to her alma mater Southville International School and Colleges as a freshman in Psychology.

Through the school's program Blended Learning, Coleen will be able to study and also fulfill her commitments in showbiz.

In 2011, Kapuso actor Bejamin Alves took a hiatus from his career to pursue his studies at the University of Guam. He took up English Literature.

He opened up to GMANetwork about his life in college back then.

He took up Marketing and Psychology before landing in Literature.

"Since I was maybe in sixth grade, I've always loved writing and I've always found it sort of natural to write, and I was an avid reader, even up to now."


By the way, he finished summa cum laude.

Rica and Paula Peralejo

Paula pursued her studies in 2005 at the University of the Philippines Diliman, where she took up BA Philosophy, minor in Tourism. She graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2008.

Rica continued her studies later on at the Ateneo de Manila University, where she first took up Creative Writing before shifting to English Literature.

In 2013, she marched along with thousands of graduates.

Marvin Agustin

Before showbiz came knocking on his door, Marvin had always imagined himself as a restaurateur.

Years later, he owns a number of food businesses around the city.

Marvin took up Asian culinary arts at the International School for Culinary Arts and Management to give himself credibility in the business.

Later on, he boosted his degree with a management studies diploma course at the Somerset International Business School.

Meryll Soriano

Despite some misunderstandings with her dad Willie Revillame, Meryll is more than determined to finish her course Product Design at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London. 


She is currently in the Philippines as part of the That's My Amboy cast.

But she hopes save enough to fly back to London to resume her studies.

Hopefully, she can have her son Eli go with her this time.

Sunshine Cruz

Through the Extended Tertiary Education Equivalency and Accreditation Program of Arellano University, Sunshine is on her way back to school. She is taking up AB Psychology.

On Instagram, she wrote: "Because it's never too late to go back to school."
