Why not go to Canada? They allow you to work as a student and after school it is easier to get an job and remain there. Really don't know much about he two countries you mentioned. There is a thread for students going to Canada with a wealth of knowledge...
Search for it and read what people are saying....

Please house, urgent answer needed. Isn't it a better idea to just process a short stay visa for Estonia from Belgium embassy in Nigeria and then get a TRP after landing in Estonia? Or is there a problem with that?

MSC applicants can give it a try tho the chances of it being granted might be slim

Hi, the cost study depends on the university, your field of study and your study cycle smiley Generally, A private university would cost more than a public one, a graduate program more than an undergraduate's and the Science or Engineering fields more than the arts, and of course, the Medical fields are outstanding.

I am more familiar with the public universities and there the undergraduate programs cost about 2000 Euros on Average while the graduate programs cost 2800 euros on average.

There are a few scholarships and very hotly contested for, so it makes sense to have a plan for tuition payment.

The cost of living depends on the city (Mostly Kaunas or Vilnius) and your living style. Here are my monthly estimates from living in Kaunas:

Accommodation: Flat 130 - 200 Euros (could get a bit more expensive in the winter due to heating); University dormitory - 80 - 120 Euros
Feeding: 50 - 100 Euros (again it depends on your style, eating out would cost more, etc.)
Public Transportation: 7 Euros/month; taxis aren't very expensive either

As for work and study, it's a bit tricky. The immigration laws are now relaxed so it's legally easier for students to find work if they have a residence permit - which you can after one year smiley Regardless, Lithuania has a big unemployment problem and many young people would go out to find work in other countries.
But, there is a huge need for specialists such as IT professionals, sounds good if you are one smiley Secondly, I have heard of part-time work for students in factories and such. I don't have any direct experience with those.
Also, students go to find work in other Schengen countries during the summer and winter breaks but you will need to be very proactive and 'aggressive' in your search I would add, but it usually works out.

Overall, studying in Lithuania is a pleasant experience, I love it grin grin. Except for the cold angry

I do think the admission process in Lithuania isn't very complicated or at least not as complicated as it looks smiley Are you getting started with any university? Share any question you have, but I do think that when you get started it's fairly straight forward.

I got admitted without TOEFL or IELTS and so have many others. As a rule, if your language of instruction in your country is in English, then you get exempted from that requirement.

You are required to take an English test when you arrive, but TOEFL, IELTS or any other certification is by no means a concrete requirement for admission.

Dear Artorius, I just checked the tuition fee for vlinus university of master's degree programme to be 3900 euros which is extremely cheap for a year. Can one work and raise for the other year since its a 2year master degrees programme.

Is it a summer only programme they provide?

Hi, I think this is rather subjective. For comparison, Lithuanian minimum wage is 380 Euros / month which when you do the math, is barely enough.

So, I don't know how to answer this question, it can go both ways. Do you think you can? smiley

According to the law, yes. You might get your residence permit a month or 2 earlier, but you cannot work without it and you usually have to wait until a year to get it.

From what I know, Egypt, India, Turkey, and recently, South Africa are the main destinations.

Turkey is the best option I suppose and I am sorry I don't have any advice about Egypt. Why were you unable to get the Egyptian visa?

I could recommend South Africa - I know someone who went that way, but it's freaking expensive. The costs of the flight tickets is incredulous :/

Egypt stop issuing visa to students going tru their country to either Estonia or Lithuania because some students were coming with fake admission letter.

I read online that it is usually one year wait for Bsc students while Master can apply for permit immediately.

Vytautas Magnus University: www.vdu.lt/en

What study program are you looking at?

Secondly, I think many Lithuanian universities also have this process. It would be helpful to contact the international office and explain your position. They are usually reasonable.

Ah well, that is sad angry

The visa fee of 250 Euros is for the Turkish? Lithuanian visa application is free smiley

Besides, that is certainly outrageous. Is this through an agent, or direct from the embassy? I recall paying 70 dollars or so for mine.

Ticket-wise, it's wiser to go to to Turkey as from Istanbul to Vilnius is 250 - 300 Euros and 2-3 hrs long. Maybe even less. From South Africa, I can't even imagine
