quatar airways is cheap but you have to go through Doha and the waiting time can be up to 10hrs. Turkish airways is also cheap but when i wanted to buy, i was told they don't carry students on 1-way.
Try air maroc and klm.
You have always been helpful guy.... We'll get to hang out sometime.

@penfold

Any luck with your payment yet? Have you contacted SHU to ascertain if they've received it?

Thanks for the info. pls who its going to Manchester between 10th and 17th?

I intend traveling to Manchester within that period also, my final destination is Sheffield. Seems you are going to Sheffield too? Qatar Airways appears to be the cheapest at the moment, no thanks to the long waiting hours at Doha, Qatar.

I'm awaiting visa approval though. Hopefully, it's going to be good news for us.

Things are looking good since you've received debit alert from First Bank. I'm sure you'll get your CAS as soon as they acknowledge your payment, mine wasn't delayed at all.

I pray you get the CAS this week bro. You can use this period to peruse your already filled forms to make it error-free.

SHU awaits you. All the best!

Keep all documents you submitted to the embassy in your hand lugguage. The questions you will be asked would be around that like, which school, which course.
I was asked for my cas and documents stated on my cas.
You might also be asked if you have a place to stay. If you dont just say a cousin/brother is picking you up at the airport.

Wherever did people get this thing about KLM being cheap? Or did I check the wrong site? BA, Emirates, Qatar Airways(what with the long wait *sighs* in Doha, Qatar before the flight to London) are about the best to London, although you have to transit in Paris/Madrid, Doha, Dubai, depending on which of the airlines you choose. Please does one need a transit visa to stop at these countries en route the UK?

Lol at the KLM being cheap grin I looked it up as well and it was far from being cheap. To the best of my knowledge, you don't need a transit visa to stop at Doha and Dubai airports BUT you won't be allowed to leave the airport during those long waiting hours.

No
KLM is cheap because you avoid the long wait.
Re: Those Going To The Uk For Studies Sept.2012/2013 Session by Nobody: 2:20pm On Aug 15, 2012
Klm is cheaper if you booked a return ticket.

I actually just booked my flight tonight with British Airways(transiting via Madrid) for 7th Sept using a GTBank card. The process was a bit complicated with activation code and mastercard secure code, but I got there in the end. Shouldn't be much trouble if you're conversant with online transactions. You may have to contact your bank.

That can't be true. It doesn't even sound reasonable? Is it there business wherever is it you are connecting from? Besides there isn't any direct flight from Lagos to Birmingham. You are going to have to connect somewhere, either Europe(London,Amsterdam,Frankfurt etc) or the Middle East or anywhere depending on the airline.

Let's even assume there's a direct flight, must you come that way. The visa is to the UK, not birmingham alone.
