Sorry for the negative decision Neeyoh... Please bro I will like to know what new rule apply to third world nationals... Pretty sure we all will like to know...Thanks
Re: Studying In Finland (free Tuition) by NeeYoh(m): 12:27pm On Dec 07
I was only granted full tuition scholarship not including living expenses support. Sorry if my earlier post wasn't clear enough.
frankie2K:

Did your school grant you 560 euros/month living expense? if they granted you both scholarship and stipend then no need submitting sponsors bank statement and dox. because i am quite confused. can u screen shot the new rule on third world countries and upload here.
Re: Studying In Finland (free Tuition) by NeeYoh(m): 12:32pm On Dec 07
The new rule is stated in Migri website.
Zudoka:


Sorry about this Neeyoh.

If you find out what the new rule for applicants from third world countries is, please do let us know.
Re: Studying In Finland (free Tuition) by NeeYoh(m): 12:35pm On Dec 07
Thank you for pointing this out, apparently "ours cases are different" . I'm in no way blaming Migri for their decision.
Yanganbiwa:


And this is a classical example with regards to my earlier post.

"I submitted some docs available at the time but not all." This "could" mean means NeeYoh did not submit ALL the documents needed.

When your application to study here starts taking long despite having scholarship, it simply means you did not package it well. It might take long (some are still positive) bc the outcome variables rest on their hand if they are convinced. But if you package your application well, their hands are forced to give u whether they like it or not.

Thirdly and most importantly, if you are using a sponsor, your chances are like 50-50. There are so many documents and loopholes migri can exploit to deny you and you might get confused on what to present. The best way still remains self sponsor.
Re: Studying In Finland (free Tuition) by chaiks: 2:00pm On Dec 07
please are there people that got the full scholarship including stipend here please? I want to know if they are facing the same visa issue.
Re: Studying In Finland (free Tuition) by Marcopolo65: 9:06pm On Dec 07
NeeYoh:

I have been to migri's website and was unable to get anything related to the new rule... I will be glad if I can have an idea about the new rule or a direct link to the page....Thanks in anticipation

sirkezman:
nigerians get little power and start acting god. what an insensitive post.
the fact that you got your residence permit on time means you are now an expert when it comes to application, right? such an unfortunate thing to say.
if you could say all this just because of a year B permit, only God knows how condescending you'll be when you become a citizen.
God help you


You got it all wrong Sirkezman. I've never said it's by my own power and am not acting god in any way. Neither did I do anything out of the ordinary.
I read through few post where people think that there some kind of propaganda by Finnish(maybe true or not) to not grant them visa and am pointing out that we do all that is within our own means to provide all the things needed so that they don't find any loophole to deny us visa(or do u want me to encourage them to do the opposite?). If we don't do that, it's going to be us at their own mercy. God works miracle but am just encouraging us to do our own part too.
Also I did some suggestions but we all chose to read other things. Tell me what I said exactly that is not true or how is it me playing god or condescending?

Am so sorry for the outcome Bro... God knows best and will perfect your footstep.
Don't let the circumstance deter you. If it's your ambition to come here, you will definitely come. Be persistent and you will grow out of it and conquer it.

Thank u for your post. Firstly, God Almighty will grant us all study permit and renewal of study permit(we still dey hustle that one too) . Amen. If it comes out as though am bragging, please I don't mean it to be that at all (all my friends can attest to that). At the very end, God is the only one that grant favours it's not by our own making or perfection.
Why I may not sound too friendly to Kofoironic was because of 2 reasons.

Firstly, he was telling someone(tysamuel) off for asking question(u can check my comment where I quoted him). He tasted his own medicine and he doesn't like it.

Secondly, we all know it's not easy securing visa/RP but even in the midst of our perceived "propaganda", how do we do our own best(mentally and financially, its draining). My pointing about my case was not to brag(not one bit) but to let Kofoironic know that the issue might be with his application(kindly note that the outcome can and hopefully will still come out positive despite the delay. We all would love to get decision quick so that we can move on to other phase of our life). Another Nigerian came in here too and went he to interview the same period. But most of us (me included) like to blame negative outcome on propaganda/something/someone while taking the positive outcome as a result of our handiwork. Why not see if there is anything you can/should have done differently (that was just my suggestion in that post). I have failed in some of my endeavours but I was brought up in such a way not to look for excuses but solutions. And if I think I've done my absolute best and it's not working out, then I move on. I pointed out a few things I "think" (I don't know for certain) will help our future application but so many people choose to see another thing. When I was preparing my application, I disturbed two persons on this group (I have never claimed to know it all) and through their guidance God granted me RP).

Typical hypocritical bullshit -- talking from both sides of your mouth like your mouth was made to eat itself. Make sure you answer every enquiry here even if it has been answered before again and again, and while you are at it, also help everyone proofread and submit their applications, give them money too.

I don't know if they've changed how they do it, but around 2014, the funds must be in your own account (i.e you will provide your own SOA) plus SOA of your sponsors, probably to show that they still got money to feed themselves and their families grin grin

There are two categories of scholarships

Tuition waiver (partial, 80% for some schools e.g UEF) and Fully funded (100% plus living allowance)

You get either of them, not both.

You can be considered for scholarship based on your admission profile. There are usually no specific separate applications for scholarship

Re: Studying In Finland (free Tuition) by NeeYoh(m): 5:20pm On Dec 11
@Marcopolo65 and others, please see below for the new Finnish government rule that applies to Third-country nationals.

Starting from September 1, 2018, researchers and students can be issued residence permits with a longer duration – the first permit can be issued for a maximum of two years instead of one. Starting from September, the residence permit for researchers can also be granted for persons conducting research with a grant. A researcher or degree student that has been granted a residence permit in another EU member state can enter Finland and perform research or study with an approved notification to the authorities, instead of applying for a residence permit for Finland. After completing the research or studies, the person can be granted a residence permit for the purpose of undertaking a job search or starting a company.

The new Finnish law and the changes in the Aliens Act are based on the European Union Directive 2016/801/EU on the conditions of entry and residence of third-country nationals for the purposes of research, studies, training, voluntary service, pupil exchange schemes, or educational projects and au pairing.

I have been to migri's website and was unable to get anything related to the new rule... I will be glad if I can have an idea about the new rule or a direct link to the page....Thanks in anticipation
