PGD applications often works in strange ways, you seem to have more chances with you PGD application without experience in your field than when you have experience in your field. so I say you have good chances. The PGD will be a progression to enhance your prospect of getting job in your field but why not a master degree that will make your chance better. your experience in finance is not a problem it only show you want to get back to your previous degree area of study

Awesome response. Thanks for seeing it from a positive light. I guess i have a lot of work to do on my SOP. Thanks again

hi everyone....pls I need schools that dont require GRE or GMAT in Canada. thanks.
The are very many..
You guys should do some research on www.google.ca
Before coming to ask questions...
GRE and GMAT are more common for American Universities.
Also more of a prequiste for admission to Management or administration Courses...
Your first point of Information should be google, then the University websites, Nairaland forum should come later for more details and information......
Success sir

Mcowubaba:

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

hello sir. please i need your intake on this. I graduated with a CGPA of 4.366 in production engineering.

Sir Congratulations on your successful Trv....

Not that I'm taking you back to the days of your Visa rejections, but if I may ask, you said you were refused Visa in November 2015 due to purpose of visit and travel history I perfectly understand the purpose of visit, but what I don't get is Travel history what type of Visa did you apply for ?
And was it a virgin passport ?
My first visit to Canada was on a Virgin passport.

Please can you enlightened us more..
God bless

Yes very well...
Provided you met the admission requirements
Find a Supervisor
And submit your application properly and timely

Try University of Saskatchewan, University of Manitoba, the have slightly cheaper tuitions depending on the program though...
But Saskatchewan is very Cold ooo... Anyway you will survive, Nigerians are in Quebec grin

Success sir

Hmmm, Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia, why did the reject your Applications, anyway this proves what I have been saying since that admission is NOT only dependent on CGPA, because you have a very good CGPA..
I guess the program was full or you didn't meet other requirements, good statement of purpose/letter of intent or probably some reasons best known to them...

Anyway let's move on...
I strongly believe that University of Saskatchewan will grant you admission, this should definitely come this September to enable you apply for Study permit at CIC
You have already been recommended, so that's a very good news.. And University of Saskatchewan has relatively cheaper tuition than Dalhousie Uni....
Time is of essence now!!!
You can send the University of Saskatchewan a polite email asking them when they will give you a feedback concerning their admission decision...
In the thesis based masters program IN Saskatchewan, where u required to find a Supervisor ?

This may be tough! You will have to justify exactly why you spent a whole seven years in finance yet you now want to go back to the construction industry. You can convince the VO though, but your SOP needs to be extremely convincing. If I were the VO, I might be a bit skeptical sha, however I can be convinced with the right reasons & arguments.

Here's the test: can you convince yourself that the claim to sponsorship is credible? Be objective. If a reasonable and rational person can be convinced about the sponsorship claim, then go ahead. Just keep in mind that for this claim to sponsorship to be credible, the pastor better be able to convincingly explain why s/he is spending over C$20,000 per year sponsoring a non-relative. If I were the VO, it would be difficult to convince me though not impossible. One thing that might help is if s/he is willing to pay a year of your program's tuition beforehand as a demonstration of his/her intent to sponsor you.

thanks for your response. well detailed

Your post got nothing to do with Canadian student visa that was why I removed it

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

I want to study for a PhD in Canada but I don't have the money and there is no sponsor. What can I do? I want to help my family. I finished with a First class degree in English language and literature from NAU and as the Overall Best graduating student of the year and I'm almost done with my Masters in the same course. I want to get a fully funded sponsorship in the same course with emphasis on literature.

I am happy for Arcayo ooo. Congratulations. Your testimony will give birth to others on this thread IJN. The lesson I picked up from your story is that of persistence when things seem contrary or when hope seems dashed. Incidentally, you are as experienced as I am as far as post-tertiary education working experience is concerned. Keep working on your vision. And all of us TRV hopefuls, especially my friends MichV, Yemdogg, I say more testimonies IJN.
