Now this is a good question
|Re: Studying In Finland (free Tuition) by kanayogod(m): 3:09pm On Sep 03, 2018|
I laugh in Finnish! Some folks come here and talk abt how tough some countries are especially Finland etc, and that its easier to make it in the US, if only you knw how many folks rely on doctored SoA to get admission and F1 visas only to get stranded in God's own country. Some got rescued by Prodigy Finance whilst some fall out of status. Ask many and you will be surprised. Lets stick to the hustle and stop demarketing countries trying to give hope to the rather would have been hopeless if they had stuck here in Nigeria. Moreover, its not by force, you can always board the nxt flight back home kwa! Peace

Is finland not a good country for Nigerians coming for studies?
|Re: Studying In Finland (free Tuition) by sirkezman: 4:17am On Sep 06, 2018|
In my opinion it is, but some smart people think otherwise.

@Presiade, God bless you for your post!
He knows better and he had let you know what is happening in Finland.
If you have a professional job there in Nigeria with some years of working experience, please find a way to upgrade yourself, make yourself more marketable and keep abreast to get a better job. With perseverance, diligence and hard work, it can only get better in terms of career. For this set of people, do not come to Finland to pay school fees. Paying nothing less than 7000 euro(almost 3M naira) in an academic year with 20-25hrs/ week of work while studying its not advisable. Besides, they hardly give a professional job after graduation even with good Finnish language skills. Having school fees in mind, you will hardly have savings, my people. You will rarely get a house rent that is less than 200 euro/month ( over 80K naira) here. You cant just understand very well if you are not here! But if you insist to leave your professional job to further your education abroad, please move to Australia, Canada or the USA because there is greater prospect to get a job you deserve after years of studying.
Secondly, for people that does not have a job in Nigeria, you can give it a shot. I can say that you will surely get atleast a menial job to do after your graduation. I am not saying that there is no professional job but its like one in 1000 cases. I support Presiade on that because I happened to be in Microsoft office recently, I can tell you that out of 1000 workers in there, I was told they have only 2 black guys.
Do not come and invest so much money here while you can afford to go to English-Speaking country. So far you need IELTS/TOEFL to gain admission into Universities in Finland, please use that English Language Proficiency Test score also to search for admission in Canada, Australia or USA if you can afford your prospective course of study there.
Lastly, in Europe, I can recommend Germany because, with good German language skills, there is a higher chance to get befitting jobs when graduating from their universities.
To those seniors saying leaving Nigeria to study in Finland is good, yes it is. We all know the situation of Naija! The point is that, if you are a good banker, engineer, supervisor etc and you have a good prospect to rise in your career, think well before you leave your job to study in Finland. The point I am trying to drive home is *life after studying in Finland*!
I wish you all my E-family goodluck!

Good points you have raised but I have a few questions.
These countries you recommended, have you lived in any of them and got job easily? Or the advise is based on hearsay? Also can you also give us the cost of living and studying in those countries as you have done for Finland? That makes it easier for people to choose
And lastly, the Microsoft office you visited, I’m assuming it’s in Finland and they only have two black guys there out of bout 1000 employees, does that mean the rest are Finns or other countries?
|Re: Studying In Finland (free Tuition) by kanayogod(m): 8:39am On Sep 10, 2018|
Valid points you have raised! O ya, analysts, come and defend your points!
Besides, we wanna hear first hand experiences that you have lived in Canada, US and even Australia.
|Re: Studying In Finland (free Tuition) by kanayogod(m): 8:44am On Sep 10, 2018|
We wanna hear first hand experiences that you have lived in Canada, US and even Australia. You think in Nigeria, 200k job makes you comfy? How many hundred thousand graduates can raise their hands of getting 200k jobs? And besides, I shudder when you always assumes its all about making money abroad! What happens to living in a society where things, amenities actually work? Like I dont have to burn gas to type this message! Like I get medical at no cut throat cost?
|Re: Studying In Finland (free Tuition) by NeeYoh(m): 7:23pm On Sep 10, 2018|
UPDATE ON RESIDENCE PERMIT: From 1st of September, Residence Permits issued by Migri is now valid for 2yrs. The implication; prospective students will now have to show means of support for the duration of their studies in Finland. Those who applied before September or those with pending applications aren't included.
|Re: Studying In Finland (free Tuition) by kanayogod(m): 8:40pm On Sep 10, 2018|

That's like 5.6 million!!
|Re: Studying In Finland (free Tuition) by sirkezman: 6:05pm On Sep 12, 2018|
Lol kinda wrong info. Rp can now be issued for up to 2 years. Meaning if you have the required income for two years, you’ll get two years. If not, you’ll get the usual one year with the minimum income required
|Re: Studying In Finland (free Tuition) by sirkezman: 9:41pm On Sep 14, 2018|
So, I came across this on twitter and thought I should share. The thing is, there are obstacles and blessings everywhere. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Follow your heart, plan and pray for God’s blessing and you will be fine
|Re: Studying In Finland (free Tuition) by chaiks: 5:22pm On Sep 15, 2018|
it seems many of our brothers and sisters here who got admitted both with tuition waiver ade yet to get their visa even when most schools are on with studies. our prayer is that before the end of september, the storm will be over in jesus name. whatever good work God has started, he will surely finish it.
|Re: Studying In Finland (free Tuition) by kanayogod(m): 9:18pm On Sep 15, 2018|

|Re: Studying In Finland (free Tuition) by Slimzain: 12:25pm On Sep 16, 2018|
Yeah! We're waiting and hopeful as well.
But note: it's a residence permit card class B we all are waiting for not Visas.
Thanks for your prayers @chaiks

'Daily Kauppalehti reports that only a minority of Finnish students abroad plan to return to Finland. Citing a survey by the Finnish National Agency for Education, Kauppalehti writes that about a quarter of the Finns studying abroad intend to come back to their home country after graduation.
Approximately 1,400 students responded to the agency’s survey, while a total of about 8,000 students currently receive funding from Kela, the Social Insurance Institution, for studies outside Finland. The number has doubled within the past 10 years.
After graduation, the place of residence is chosen based on the individual's employment and career outlook, while the country’s general atmosphere is also considered important, Kauppalehti wrote, quoting the agency's Irma Garam. She laments that only 22 percent of Finns studying abroad regard Finland as attractive, and 8 percent deem Finland to be international.
Mostly students are concerned about the lack of career opportunities and poor employment prospects in Finland. In addition, many consider the country to be bigoted, narrow-minded and intolerant.
According to Kauppalehti, the respondents view their countrymen and women as socially inept, cold, unfriendly and stiff. One respondent called Finland xenophobic, bitter, indecisive and regressive, while another said the country was wasting its potential by closing itself from the world and not having the guts to look to the future, Kauppalehti said.'
When they get their eyes opened outside their home that some 'people' are dying to defend. Mental slavery is real. Helsinki/Stockholm syndrome. This is a statistically backed, government-conducted survey not some posts by some illiterate agents with 'reach' sponsors.

The "reach" sponsor thingy was an error to start with and anyone can make typographic error no need to dwell on that. That been said, bros, mention one country in the whole world that operate an open door, let migrants come and take our jobs policy? You think America is the golden boy of the world? or Mapleland (Canada)the best? Check thru history and educate us better and not some already known facts that are in the open.
Besides, life itself is a risk!
|Re: Studying In Finland (free Tuition) by frankie2K(m): 9:27am On Sep 17, 2018|
You hit it buddy. If Finns run away after studies, then Nigerians do what after studying in oversees? From my rough calculations 87% of students from Nigeria abscond after a seminar talkless of 2 years studies
|Re: Studying In Finland (free Tuition) by Dude04(m): 9:31am On Sep 17, 2018|
I dun dy read debate here since about Finland this and that. It is very simple o nobody force anybody to leave em country o, it's really pathetic when you get free education from a country that owes you nothing and you say ill stuff about the country. If Finland does not work for you go elsewhere nobody glue your nyansh here. Advising ppl to go to Canada or US, the question is can they afford tuition over there. I know folks that moved to Finland and they are doing well and also ppl that schooled in Finland and moved to Australia, Canada, US. For example with a certificate from Aalto university you get an automatic 18 months work visa to Australia if you are under 31, isn't that something. My advice to ppl moving to Finland know what you want, do not settle for less, mix with the right ppl (P.S if you meet person when go dy tell you say professional jobs nor dy after graduation, well just know depression will be your friend). ofcourse it is way easier to school and live in an English speaking country but as we nor get the funds to pay school fees for doz countries shey we go sidon for niaja dy chop grass when we dun get free tuition school (P.S minimum of 10000 euros per year for tuition). We all go dy alright finally
