Right on, @Lawmerchant!

I've been wanting to say something like this too. I think the title of the forum is general "Travelling to Canada". If Justwise does not agree with your post, then he could 'probably' re-name the forum to suit ONLY Students Travelling to Canada and not just Travelling to Canada (which may connote students, workers etc).

Just the way a forum titled "Canadian Express Entry/federal Skilled Workers Program Connect Here" is more specific.

I agree that the post is not directly related to Canada student visa but it has a lot to do with Canada visa application generally, especially the need for visa applicants (including student visa applicants) to be truthful in their visa application. I do think it was an error in judgement to delete the post. - LM

Hi.
Please all the gurus in the house. I have been trying to link my paper application to an online account for 2 months now. It has not been successful. Should I be worried? Or does anyone know who it has happened to?

I am in the same shoes too..
Infact 2 people in Canada tried helping out.. Still e no work..

I think i will just wait patiently..

And remain hopefully!

Good Evening, sorry for the delay in replying, I was busy with work.
Now from what you have sent, it is self explanatory, very clear and concise...
University of Western Ontario has told that you could still be admitted with the CGPA, but it depends on some factors like Letter of intent also known as Statement of purpose, which I mentioned earlier, number of applications nd getting a supervisor....
Now this is why I was asking you what type of Masters degree you were applying for.
Because getting a Supervisor that is willing to handle your research/Thesis will go a very long way in determining your admission...
Now my advise, firstly from the Department page, find their research publications or journals, then check the ones that are related to your proposed field or specialization, then try and get in contact with the Authors of this Journals (by clicking on their profile and sending them mail, there are guidelines for this)

please note most research nd publications are done by both students and professors/lecturers, try and find out the one that's a professor, I believe this won't be a problem for you.
I know people with lower CGPA that were admitted for Masters degree program at the University of Alberta, Queens University and University of Ontario Institute of Technology, bros your CGPA is okay..... As I said before.

All you need now is to write a very good letter of intent/statement of purpose, give them official email address of your references - mostly from academic background: your HOD, your project supervisor, your Course adviser should be among your reference, but if you believe the wouldn't write very well about you, you can find other lecturers in your department you believe will give you a powerful reference, your last employer can also give u a reference, even the place you may have served in via NYSC (ppa) ...
Don't be scared about your CGPA..
Find a supervisor, as I told you
Write a very powerful letter of intent/statement of purpose
Arrange your updated Curriculum Vitae/Resume very well
Please don't lie or say things which you can't defend...

But most Course based Masters program don't require you to find a Supervisor, so I don't knw what University of Western Ontario is talking about, anyways the will know better undecided

Where you will need a supervisor is UofM for Thesis based Masters, getting a supervisor is not hard, just package yourself very well, if you're a Religious person, you can also pray to your God..
Sometimes in UofM, you may not even find a supervisor, all you need to do is to register, because during registration, you may be asked to provide a Thesis title and how you intend going about it, this will be reviewed and a professor or Dr maybe allocated to you if the have any that is interested in your Research, anyway send the department a mail about this for more information ....

University of Manitoba has a relatively cheap tuition $14,000 - $20,000, compared to other Universities.

And now the advantages of doing a Thesis based Masters is very good, you could easily get sponsorship, funds, awards to do a PhD program... You could also get very personal with your supervisor, which will be very beneficial for you wink
Disadvantages of thesis based, it's time consuming, you have to be very smart, hardworking, independent, focused and knowledgeable, if not you may not finish on time or may not meet the requirements for conferment of the Masters degree ...

University of Western Ontario is in Ontario province, the 2nd biggest province in Canada and the most populous province, it's full of job opportunities, and lots of Africans are there.

Advantages of Course based Masters, it is a bit less stressful, just like how you learnt in Nigerian University, come to class, learn with colleagues, receive lectures, some maybe online, write test occasionally, exams, internship, do a dissertation at the end. Simple

Disadvantages, difficulty in getting funding or external support, more stressful in getting a PhD admission

Most applications deadlines for winter/spring 2017(have passed) and fall 2017 are fast approaching.. Manitoba is on 30th of November for fall 2017 admission, so you have to act fast....
Start your registration immediately, go nd apply for Transcript, get a student's copy that you will use to upload in their page...
You will be required to provide an original transcript directly from your University, but that is after the have given you a provisional admission...

Don't use any agent, you can do it on your own....
Any other questions or clarification, you ask anyone here...
Many people have much more informations than me.... So feel free to consult them...
We wish you well and we are here for you. cool

Chaiiii.
Ever since I joined nairaland, I have never seen such an explanatory post, even all the questions I intend asking next is treated leaving me speechless and questionless.

May God bless you abundantly for this post.

For now, I don't have any further question.

Thanks so much.

I am applying for fall and from their websites, application starts next month on 1st September

justwise:


Let me be blunt with you and i hope you don't take it the wrong way.

You are a potential immigrant, rather than dashing Canadian embassy that money ask your pastor to pray you so that God in heaven will open your eyes and other legitimate doors to Canada.

Bros in the last ten years you have managed to achieve first degree and 7 years of work experience in financial industry and now you want to go into construction industry. There is no correlation between your first degree, work experiences AND the course you tend to study

Now you want to convince anybody that you want to throw away everything you have achieved in the last 10 years to start afresh again?

At what age?

Lastly why would your pastor invest millions in you alone and not any other church members?

Downright hilarious, Thanks all the same. I believe an explanatory/detailed sop will do. Thanks once again
