Jengbetiele, can a graduate of public administration with a cgpa of 4.15 apply and which course would u advise to go for masters.

Wow 4.15 Good GPA. I think you should go for Master's in Chemical Engineering.








If you are a graduate and still asking this kind of question as if the Op nah baba God, then there is really a problem in Nigeria.

Sequel to numerous of private messages enquiries I got after my two posts http://www.nairaland.com/2822230/having-tough-time-academics-read and http://www.nairaland.com/2432779/funny-jjc-experience-canada . There is a common objective in all the mails received. Similarly going by most of the quotes, replies and mentions on the thread it became obvious that everyone wants to know how to secure a scholarship in Canadian universities for graduate programs at master’s level and PhD. The aim of this thread to give detailed step by step procedures during the application phase. Needless to say that when you secure a full scholarship admission in a foreign university, the chances you will be given the visa is 95 percent. They rarely deny or delay scholars . Let’s get started

Graduate programs are basically of two types in Canada. The first being thesis or research based admission and the second project route admission. While thesis based is meant for researchers and people who would not mind a PhD in the near future, project based is mainly suited for students who would prefer to work in the industry hence most project based programs have a coop or work term component…don’t be confused na just IT…but paid IT and it usually runs for 4 months.

Due to the nature of thesis based master’s degree, it is usually more rigorous and highly competitive you know how money matter dey always be now hahahha and as a result, you are given a full scholarship from basically three sources. The first is School of graduate studies; the second is your home department while the third is from Research assistant role or teaching assistant role.
The accumulation of these funds runs in thousands of dollars paid to you per annum. They deduct your tuition and other expenses and pay you the rest on a bi-weekly basis. It is worthy of mention to state explicitly that once you apply for a thesis route masters degree, you need not apply for any other scholarship separately. It comes together like bread and butter in most cases hahahaha. And when you are admitted and you get funding from an external source, they stop the one that comes with your admission hahahahaha you wan hammer ontop scholarship money abi? .

Now the big question is how do I qualify and/or what are the basic requirements. Well for the most part, you need a CGPA of nothing less than a 75 percent in your undergraduate. This is equivalent to a 3.5 on a 5.0 scale. Depending on your choice of program, you may need Gmat or GRE and probably IELTS too as part of supporting documents. As earlier stated the competition is always very fierce. My supervisor told me over 700 applicants submitted while just 15 were chosen. Hence you need to be that irresistible and promising young scholar.

This is where creating a scholarly profile comes in. It is not a requirement most times but I recommend including your scholarly publications in your application and certificates of membership of academic bodies. If you are still an undergraduate, hope still dey. Join IEEE, AIESEC and all these student organizations. And try write some articles also. I did it so you can do it too. Just research and stop being lazy like me hahahha. Moreover, you will need to write a clear and concise statement of purpose clearly stating your research interest and your academic feats. All these writings no be big deal. They are just a perfect avenue to sell yourself to the review panel and make them pee in their pants hahahahhaa thereby creating that enthusiasm to sign you. All these would further strengthen your case and make your application more competitive. As a matter of fact I included all these when I was applying even certificates of presentations and participations in academic conferences in Nigeria.

One of the hurdles in securing a thesis admission is getting a supervisor. That can be very frustrating as I went through the same too. So my advice here is draft a very unique proposal. Not just the normal template we see around. Be creative an instance when I was writing mine I wrote something likes “Sir I read your publications titled database blab blab la bla. While it is educative and interesting if adopted in today’s world of computing, I would like to specifically state that combining your methodology with so so so approach could create a more efficient database system…..I made logical suggestions to one of his works while indirectly critiquing others hahahaha try this with a naija professor at your peril hahahahaha. So write a catchy proposal. Because even if you have a first class, and you can’t get a supervisor, you won’t be admitted. Though some universities do merge student automatically the supervisor of aligning interest but most of them won’t do that.

Above all, pray for favour and goodluck because sometimes the race is not to the swift hahahahaha. Before I return my pen into basket of love, I wish you a prosperous 2016 in advance.



How can I join AIESEC here in Nigeria? Sorry for quoting the whole article.
Re: How To Secure A Scholarship Admission To Canadian Universities by Walexwal: 10:49am On Dec 30, 2015
Jengbetiele:
For a research based masters degree, it is mandatory you get a supervisor with same research interest as yours. Here is the rundown of the process. Though there may be a slight difference based on school. 1) You apply with your statement of intent and other supporting document 2) School of graduate studies review your document 3) School of graduate studies send your document to your home department panel for review 4) If you are found academically admissible,then the department send your file to available supervisors if any available supervisor gets interested then he reviews your file and then fill a program of study form for your admission then you get admitted. But if they can not locate any supervisor for you, then they mail you informing you that though you have been found academically acceptable, but you should try and send your proposals to your prospective supervisor. If you cant get any and they cant get any, then you wont be accepted. So i normally advise people to try get a supervisor themselves before applying. If you have any more question,let me know. Thank you

keep up the good work jengbetiele. I have some few questions for u bro.

1. Can I defer my admission for a research MSC if am given d admission becos am likely to win a scholarship for a taught program at UBC?

2. After gaining admission for a research program will I be needed pay any fees again aside the app fees or d sch will take care of it just for me to resume?
Re: How To Secure A Scholarship Admission To Canadian Universities by ogunsinamayowa(m): 10:58pm On Dec 30, 2015
ogunsinamayowa:


Thanks for your detailed reply. I have another questions:
1: in applying for graduate assistantship: will i send my application with all necessary documents and statement intent when the uni advertising the opportunity for graduate assistantship.

2: Base on what you said, how can i easily find a supervisor that his research interests is comformable with mine and if i find him, will i send my application through him? ( my research interests fall between anything related to electoral practice or subordinate level of government in relation with centrifugal administration.)

3. please specify on those documents which i must submit that will favour my scale in seeking for graduate assistantship application.

4. this is the must significant question of all. when am applying for student permit, what will i tell in respect to financial source for tuition fee, accommodation and maintenance at visa application center ? do i need to provide proof of my financial capability to take care of myself through my studying period before i will be granted a visa after i have accepted assistantship offer from the university? and do i need to provide for anything besides my travelling expenses and hotel accommodation before commencement of my graduate program and assistantship.
thanks for your priceless aid.

Jengbetiele, please do find time to answer my questions. please.

You can't do your msc directly but you can go For graduate diploma.

Getting a scholarship is not certain with third class.. Most people that get scholarship are Msc thesis and PhD.
All the best.

I need a sample of a research proposal for a Master's degree as part of requirements for securing admission/getting the attention of a supervisor in a Canadian school.

I need a footing as to how to go about it. I need basically a template or an existing one (good or bad). Which ever way, I will make something out of it. It's actually urgent.
Kindly assist a fellow. Thanks in anticipation.

I am a teacher! Some say it proudly, others do not. Someone recently asked me this question: Is teaching a profession in Nigeria? A resounding yes is the answer. Infact the Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria requires all teachers to undertake examinations and annual registration. A positive move by me!
