i will advise u to send a case specific enquiry since the current processing time is 16 weeks and ur school has resumed. But it will be better to defer in your case since it may take a week or more for CIC to respond to ur case.

Hello. I wanted to find out if refusal for msc applicsnts with funding was a common occurrence. I have been going through the old threads but their volume isn't really helping.
Small reminder to myself to post the e-mail formats I used when contacting supervisors.
|Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 12 by oluwaCanny: 9:02pm On May 07, 2017|
LightandDarkness:u have to package ur application well as u can be refused on several grounds and not only for insufficient funds...
the funding often will cater for the insufficient funds aspects of your application...(which is one of the toughest for applicant here aside purpose of visit)
My advice is avoid any form of misrepresentation and package well and u will be fine. A friend of mine with full funding was refused and banned for 5 years for presenting fake documents. (NB: he wasnt aware the statement was fake prior to submission)
|Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 12 by Osemigho: 9:04pm On May 07, 2017|
I will advise you stick to what your supervisor's said. Think some schools allow late, after 2-3weeks, resumption.
|Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 12 by Osemigho: 9:08pm On May 07, 2017|
Which statement if I may ask?
Did he use agent to apply?
|Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 12 by oluwaCanny: 9:39pm On May 07, 2017|
bank statement... a family friend gave him a statement...

I recently gained admission to a thesis based Msc program in Canada and wanted to share some tips in getting a supervisor.
1. Be patient, the process takes time and a lot of e-mails.
2. Make sure you tailor each e-mail specifically to the supervisor you are interested in. Check their profile, read their research interests, check their current projects, and if possible glance at one or two of their recent publications. Sometimes on the profiles of supervisors their number of graduate students are mentioned, if they have a lot its unlikely they would have space for you, this isn't always true but it can save you time when you are prioritizing who to e-mail.
3. Include your CV and transcript with each e-mail.
4. Please please make sure your e-mail is well written and professional, use clear English as well as good punctuation and spelling. Note you are from Nigeria in Africa (no offence to us) but sometimes these people might have the unfair assumption that because of where you are from your english might be terrible, no one wants to work with someone they cannot communicate with. Use appropriate titles, do not call a Professor a Doctor, some supervisors will not care, some do care very much.
5. Note that these people are busy, if your e-mail is not replied immediately just be patient, wait for about 3-7 days and forward the initial e-mail with a BRIEF re-introduction. "Dear Dr/ Professor X. My name is Bleep, I am a potential applicant to program x. I sent you an email x-days ago regarding the potential of you being my supervisor for x program. I decided to re-send this e-mail as I was not sure you had seen it. Kind regards, X". If there is no reply it is safe to assume they might not be accepting students, however you can give it another 7 days and send another e-mail, if there is still no reply move on.
6. Your CV is an important part of your application. I say application because you are basically applying to work with the supervisor, spend time crafting a straight to the point CV. A good CV (for a fresh graduate anyway) should be no longer than 2 pages, if you have been working it is understandable that it might be longer. Note again though that these people do not have time so try to be concise. Make your CV appealing to the eye. Also avoid including your age, sex, religion, marital status or all of that, these are simply unnecessary and might bias the supervisor against you for example with your personal religious affiliation.
7. Small tip: I used send my e-mails to supervisors at around 8:30-10AM at wherever they were located, I did this because these are the times an average working person would get into the office and read their mail to plan for the day. No evidence this helps anything but sha..
Now to the formats.
I really prefer this format because its simple and straight to the point, you state why you are e-mailing and you direct them to your CV and transcripts for further information. Saves both them and you precious time.
Dear Dr/Prof X,
My name is X and I am a candidate for the MSc Bleep program at the University of X to begin in Fall/Winter/Summer 201x. The purpose of this e-mail is to enquire about the availability of masters graduate student positions in your lab.
I am interested in the research you are conducting on (what you are interested in). The basis of my interest in your research is a scientific interest in (reasons why you are interested). I have attached my CV and transcripts for your consideration. Thank you for taking the time read my e-mail.
I used this at the beginning when I thought I would be getting quick responses and I thought had all the time in the world. While this format is more robust and indeed you give the supervisor a good picture of your self as an applicant, I do think it is a bit lengthy and might be a turnoff for supervisors, however I have received positive responses with this format. Some Supervisors might however ask you to send something like this as a "career plan".
Dear Dr/Prof X,
My name is X and I am interested in applying for the (your program) at the University of X for a Fall 201x start. The purpose of this e-mail is to enquire about the possibility of you acting as my faculty supervisor during the course of the (your program).
To briefly describe my profile, I am a (your degree) graduate from (your University) with a passion for research (if you are going or a thesis based program you will be doing research). I am interested in the research you are conducting on[b] (summarize their interests)[/b] which motivated me to contact you regarding the possibility of you being my supervisor for (your program).
Here I discuss the knowledge and research experience I have relevant to their own research
I possess knowledge of (knowledge relevant to their research) which I gained through modules on these topics during the course of my (what you studied) degree. I have also had experience of geology/biology/chemistry/finance etc research; (How you gained this experience). I have described this/these experiences/projects (as appropriate please) in my attached curriculum vitae. Through these experiences I have gained (briefly describe what you gained from these experiences- laboratory techniques, analytical methods, project management etc)
I have attached my CV for your consideration which describes my research experience and research competencies. I have also attached my university transcripts which show the courses I studied during my (what you studied) degree. My transcripts are graded using the Nigerian grading system which differs from the Canadian system however I have confirmed my overall grade of Second Class, Upper Division is sufficient for entry to the (your program of interest).
I believe I can gain valuable knowledge and experience under your supervision but also use the knowledge and research experience I have previously gained in order to contribute positively to your research. I am very happy to further discuss my grades, research experience, and interests and I look forward to your reply at your convenience.

Okay, is it MEng or MESc? I applied in ECE dept first week of April, the graduate studies coordinator of my dept said it will take approximately 4-6 weeks for a decision to be made on my application. I suggest you wait till your application clocks exactly 6weeks.
Meanwhile i think you didnt apply early enough for the FALL semester. Just remain hopeful Bro

|Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 12 by einsteino(m): 7:43am On May 08, 2017|
Please I am a little confused in packaging of documents to submit. for example, there is no where on CIC's website were it was requested I upload my birth certificate or that of my siblings, my degree certs and transcripts.. but I see post of other people who did, under what category of documents did you append this documents to and in what order would you advise I arrange it? Thanks
|Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 12 by Osemigho: 8:13am On May 08, 2017|
sundaydammy:That is ban.
Did you use agent and or submit fake documents?
|Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 12 by Ope100(m): 8:39am On May 08, 2017|
1. As for tuition, fill in your tuition for one year as it shows on your acceptance letter/school invoice.
2 & 3. What I know is Room and board + others should sum up to at least $10,000 CDN. That's how I filled mine, i may be wrong. I have seen a few people on this thread say they left it blank. So I guess you shouldn't worry much about that aspect except it is stated in your Acceptance letter/school invoice.
As for Funds available, from what I know this is the amount your sponsor is willing to give you which I guess should be slightly higher than your tution + 10K cdn. You also need to put into consideration the closing balance of the bank statement you want to submit before filling that aspect. I hope this helps, regards.
|Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 12 by Ope100(m): 8:50am On May 08, 2017|
The letter of explanation section will suffice. All you need to do is scan your birth certificate and that of your sibling's, degrees and transcripts together with your SOP if you have one and upload in that section as a single document. Your order of arrangement should be at your discretion. I used the content of my SOP to arrange mine. Regards
|Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 12 by einsteino(m): 10:24am On May 08, 2017|
Thanks. Must my siblings birth Cert be NPC? I only have NPC birth cert of myself and one of my sibling, the rest are standard local govt registration of birth issued at the time of their birth.

Thanks Ope100 for your response.
|Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 12 by Nobody: 11:37am On May 08, 2017|
Please house, who else applied to University of Regina (Fall 2017) ? I applied since Dec 15, 2016 and still no response from them. In clearer terms, a decision has not been reached by the faculty of graduate study and research. Please, who else is with me on this one; I am also wondering, if I get admitted, would I be able to completely process my VISA application before resumption date in September. I am kind of lost on this one and I need answers.
Thanks and God bless.
