Re: North Cyprus by thankfulsoul: 1:03pm On Feb 13
Plus gurus in the house,Mr Wip7 and the elders here, pls I wish to make some enquiry. I have managed to raise like 1.5million. I will be able to pay for my school fees for masters, but I read that the job situation over there is bad. So I want to know if there's any better chance for a masters student to get job. I am at cross road between north Cyprus and UAE. I have been to UAE before; they have low paying job with long working hours. Is it easy to move to European countries after masters in TRNC. Thanks

Please guys I need your advice.
I'm a dual citizen ( Nigeria and Liberia) . I have Liberia passport already, and north Cyprus is one of d countries I can travel to without visa. D issue now is, can I be able to visit (north cyprus) without having issues at the port of entry like deportation stuff since I'm not going for studies? I read how many Nigerians were deported on daily basis to countries like Rwanda or Seychelles

Due to the increasing influx of Africans and many Asians recently to North Cyprus, the immigration at NC has beefed up high scrutiny and rapid deportation. Many of these travellers are not really view/known to be tourists but coming to either work or use NC as a step to cross to nearby EU states.

Even though Thai citizens which passport shows its Visa-free to North Cyprus were deported just 2 months ago upon arrival. Passport holders from EU states, Australia, Some stable African nations, North and South Americas are easily given a free pass.

However, If you are able to proof you have a verifiable job currently, paid hotel, banking statement/source of income, return tickets and evidence of good travelling histories to other developed nations....it may be easier for you.

Give it a try and safe trip.

Many students have found jobs in NC while studying, while many have found it hard to get a job. Some are lucky to find good and reasonably worthy paying jobs while large number find hard laboured low paying jobs. For students, 80% of the jobs are black or purple collar jobs while these students are still able to make a living and survive.

I had some of my studies in TRNC, I came to TRNC from a well-developed nation and I had a large amount of cash with me to pay my fees and living expenses so I never bothered about casual jobs. I currently work as a Professor in TRNC and I earn combo salaries that make me over comfortable. I consider myself one of the lucky ones and few African are also following this path. From my years of living in TRNC, I have seen that only those with higher educational degrees like myself with PhD are currently fitting into that tiny brackets.
For the business-minded African, I have known few that make huge income from their legal businesses such as Bakery (Agege bread factory), Barbing Salon, Restaurants, Software development etc.

My advice: If you have the financial capability to pay your tuition and living expenses and you think TRNC is okay for your educational movement. You may consider it.

The issues we have are, we have many undergraduates and sometimes master students that either they were deceived by these fraudulent agents or they are naturally dull/misinformed or just something else. I have seen countless students that have no financial capability, the agents only deceived them to pay for just one semester or maximum 1 year. After then, they find it difficult to get jobs to even sustain themselves not to talk of paying the following semester fee. These students either resorted to Fraud, Scams or Prostitutes while many of them cursed TRNC as if the president of TRNC forced them to immigrate/study in TRNC.

TRNC is a small island that depends heavily on Turkey for importation and support. Living expenses are higher than almost all African nations. The environment is relatively peaceful and comparatively good for study compares to many ill-equipped institutions. Many graduates that are well-trained, have substantial skills and self-developed while studying has moved to well-developed countries.

As an adjunct professor, I have lectured in highly developed countries and 85% of my PhD graduates from TRNC are currently in Canada, UK, USA working, in fact, my recent PhD graduate (graduated Sept 2019, gained PR in Canada and started his career in an institution in Toronto last month)

Take note: am not advertising TRNC or showing off my achievements but am logically saying that jobs are scarce in TRNC, and some get jobs and many don't get. And if you don't have the financial muscle and wants to rely on jobs in TRNC....it may be a sorry case. While many graduated here and are doing great.

Let me be specific with your 1.5 million Naira ( which is like 4100usd):

1. The cheapest master program is 2175$ for the entire program (1-2 years)
2. Lowest accommodation per year is 1300$
3. Residence permit, new phone line (once), and allied accessories 300$/year
4. Average food and living expenses (for normal human without smokers/alcoholics) 1200$/year
5. Unforeseen contingencies, Valentine gifts, poke nosing 500$/year.

Do the maths, and if you are okay.....fine. If you get the job while studying it will just support, not the main sources.

Thank you so much and I appreciate you, we can meet one of these days. I am just a busy bee if am not in the lab, am coding or developing software, or writing a research paper, teaching or travelling.. thats my life summarized grin

Since 2009 when this thread was opened, I have tried my best to provide information and guide to prospective students.

I have sponsored my younger ones to study in various countries, so I know how difficult to pay fees, how bad it will be for younger people to navigate a new environment. Irrespective of countries be it USA, UK, Canada, having a stable sponsor and well-planned structure will really go a long way while studying.

The only issues am having currently is that the majority of the prospective younger African students are really not interested in developing competitive skills. High-level research, computing (cloud, machine learning, programming, cybersecurity), game development, data science, software development, artificial intelligence and portable electronic fabrication skills. Whatever degree, if armed sufficiently with some of these skills, its paves substantial pathway and opportunities in various countries.

These are easily accessible online, instead of spending time on scamming/yahooze, or spending huge time on casual jobs... these skills will open doors and can earn more.

I hope the trend change soon.

The lowest undergraduate fee is 2600$ per year for tuition and master is 2175$.

You will need to tell me which level (undergrad or master), do you have a minimum 5 credits including Maths and English in Olevel results? You will need an international passport page, the results and scratch card to verify your results.

Ensure you have the financial capability for tuition and living expenses. If you are ready, email me the requested documents.

Consider Turkey, you will be accepted with age 28....but the fee is 4500$/year! You will need to pay 1000$ to the university before you can apply for a visa and pay the rest as the semester goes.

If you have OND/other certificate that proofs you have been engaged academically since, then you will be admitted to Cyprus also.

If interested let me know!

For public universities in Turkey, you either present YOS or SAT result. If you have completed a year, you may wish to transfer rather than starting afresh, most of the public universities do allow transfer.

There are few issues with the public universities in Turkey.
1. there is quota system for number of foreign students admitted per program per semester sometimes just 5, so having good grades in either YOS or SAT may be helpful. So this quota limits the admission to foreign students that’s is why many goes to private universities in Turkey which is more expensive.

2. Many of the public universities offer undergraduate programs in Turkish language that’s why many students attend private universities that offers in English but more expensive.

Anyway, you can contact which ever university you wish to enroll in Turkey and ask them these specific questions, they will provide you answers specific to their universities.
