Thanks for your response, I'm actually looking at renting a room within a house, don't have money for an entire flat now. But I want something where I can pay per month as opposed to paying per day on Airbnb, or is it possible to get a room for a month without deposits?
My plan is to get a place through Airbnb for 10 days then work on getting a room through zoppla or rightmove within those 10 days.
If you know other better/cheaper ideas I'm open to it.

NB: I'm going to Cambridge. Thanks

Lol I’ve been running away from paying an instructor but it’s as if I have to, according to you and lexus’ advice. Yeah I’ll also pass the test before getting the car. It is well! Thanks a lot, I appreciate your input.
It shouldn't cost you much if you have been driving before. I spent less than £500 to brush up, learn some of the codes and take the driving test.

CastedDude:
The 32-year-old man identified as Augustine Otuokwa Ogar, who became an online sensation after constructing a 200 Mega Watts mini Hydroelectric power plant that generates electricity for the plant site and its surrounding early this year - is back again with another cool invention.

The graduate of Electronic and Computer Technology, University of Calabar (UNICAL), who comes and from Wula village, Eastern Boki in Boki Local Government Area of Cross River State, has constructed a Hydroelectric power machine that uses a bucket of water to run using locally sourced materials...

The talented man explained his research on Hydroelectricity to Calabar Reporters as he revealed that the system generate up to 20 watts (20W) of power that powers the injector pump and some phones and it operates when the top tank is filled with a bucket of water.

I don't know where you got your statistics from but there is no company that I have worked with that there are not many Nigerians. And these are engineering firms. Nigerians are every where doing very well. The problem is that a lot of them are silently making their money.

You're very silly. This isn't love.



This is where you should have cut her off, but your dream of administering on her won't let you. Wrong source of inspiration...appreciated all the same.


Smart girl...



Very very smart girl. Some men wanna have sex with you, not because it's an act of love...but because it is a collateral to them. Something to console themselves with if the relationship doesn't go their way. Some ladies withhold the sex for same reason. Your ability to identify which category s/he falls into is wisdom...like that of Solomon.


There would always be someone richer than you. If you earn love and respect via money, try hard never to lose it. The money must increase exponentially... kiss


Good you didn't...


Prodigal son, good you found your way home. Now you know the importance of family.



You're still hurting. In life's journey, we would hurt people and people will hurt us. How we handle the outcome would tell a lot 'bout our emotional intelligence/maturity. Let go of the grudge...you'll be glad you did. Treat people as an individual, not gender...race, tribe, religion or whatever.
Wise words. You sound like callioti, Kanwulia etc. Are you?
Romance / Re: Help Help Facebook Is Ruining My Relationship by dustydee: 6:50am On Apr 18
LIFEisSIMPLE:
Please nairalanders, i need help.

2 months ago, i used my money to buy my girlfriend an internet phone and she quickly signed up for facebook. At first i was happy because she was happy, now i think i made the dumbest mistake in the history of mankind.
She has started connecting with a lot of her friends and classmates and always on the phone chatting smiling and laughing. Shockingly, I tried to look through her phone last night only to realised that the phone is now passworded.

I have been observing alot of changes, and recently when i try to call her at night her phone is busy getting lousy excuses. I have invested so much in this girl and i do not want stories that touch.

Please i need advice on how to handle this situation with maturity. Also is it okay if i collect back the phone as this internet phone has now become the source of all my worries and pain.
Why do some Nigerian men feel that buying expensive gifts and giving money to their girl friends is the best way to keep them? Why can't they have a normal loving relationship with occasional thoughtful gifts (cards, chocolate, blouse, flowers - if she likes it)? And it should not be one sided.

Meanwhile I doubt water will be part of council tax sha but anyway it's scotland it could be different
There are different water companies around the UK so it will depend on his location. The supplier may be different from the one you stated.

Finally got my COS yesterday. Expected to resume June 4. Funny thing is COS had been issued to my employer since February and I was initially scheduled to resume May 14 but one oyibo woman forgot to issue it to me until I called to ask if I should start looking for another job (didn't use those same words sha)
Good thing is now I can start work on my visa.
Abeg I will be counting on the experienced guys in the house, I've not done this before. So expect some very dumb questions from me in the coming days, when you see them don't vex for me just know say I be JJC. You can yab me small I don't mind as long as you show me road, but only small yab oh.
On a serious note I will be counting on your guidance through this, don't want to make any errors. The General UK thread is full of visitors, if u ask any JJC question somebody will tell you to go and read the thread from page 1 like say I de prepare for jamb.
Let me go and prepare for "dumb question one"
Thanks in advance.

Career / Re: Degree Vs Certifications: Which Should You Go For? – A Detailed Guide. by dustydee: 7:29am On Mar 27
From my experience, a degree will give you an edge and make certification easier. I have never been asked to present my degree certificate or which school I went to my class of degree on my last 2 jobs. The only mention of it is on the job description. But having a degree has helped make my job easier. Instead of certifications I will rather go for skills especially for those in IT. Your skills are more important than the certification except perhaps in a few cases.

how long did it take to get your refund
About a week or so.
But there are some landlords that will want to stiff you for the littlest of things. So take pictures of any and everything wrong with the property before you move in and send it to the agency or landlord if you are dealing with him/her directly. You you stay long enough in the house they can't charge you for normal wear and tear.

He will win as long as he is not indicted by the NJC. The proof of his innocence is non-indictment by the NJC
No, the verdict was that the EFCC did not go through the NJC which is the laid down procedure. He will have to prove that the NJC would not have indicted him and even that does not mean he is not culpable.

bros he can sue. Once he is cleared by the NJC, the EFCC is in hot soup
He can sue no doubt but as a judge he knows he won' win because he has to prove that the allegations are false - which most likely is not.

After they have messed up his name in public and caused his suspension by the NJC. If I'm him, I will sue the FG for one billion naira for destroying my hard earned personality of integrity after many years of service at the bench.
He can't sue because the court did not say he did not commit the alleged offence but that due process was not followed. Sueing means he will have to prove that he did not commit the alleged offence.

I received my full deposit after two years of renting so it is not true that you never get your deposit back. They cannot charge you for normal wear and tear and you can dispute any deduction if you feel it is not justified.

To add to what mr Lexusgs430 said... you can easily pick up a car....but as a jjc or newly qualified UK driver your insurance could be well over £3000 ....the bigger the engine the higher the premium....also depending on your location

Haba,is it for a train? my first bill was less than £600. This month, for 2 drivers we paid less than £300. 3k is way too much.

Hello All!

New migrant alert here. This thread has been great, thanks a lot to all who have contributed.

Pls my perspective is slightly different. I'm a Tier5 dependent (Wife) and we all moved with our 3 children. It has honestly been unbelievably expensive and we still have not settled in a house we like.. have been doing short stay which is very expensive.

Anyhoo, we are North and even though I honestly won't be able to work for at least a year or two coz I have small children, I want to invest the time wisely doing courses etc that will allow me be immediately relevant when I'm ready. So for those with knowledge pls help your sister... which areas are perpetually hot in the U.K. especially the Scotland area. Pls note that - I have over 10 years experience in Entrepreneurial endeavors/Business management. - No passion for IT or Medical fields plus Hubby na d medic. - For now considering Social work or Project Mgt or Event Mgt (Events coz I have a passion there) but I don't know if it pays this side.

I honestly have never not contributed to the household purse and I dey pity Oga as I'm seeing how the money is vanishing.. won't even mind ideas on what I can do online at home from now to earn in the U.K. Pls oh my peeps give me ideas based on your wealth of knowledge. Many thanks.

Cc: @Aphrodite007 @fatima04 and all the other greats on the thread. Pls don't waka pass. Thank you.
