Hello everyone. I have a Bsc in Biochemistry (third class) and I am planning to pursue a Higher Diploma Program in Software Development in Ireland. I already talked with agents from the school and they assured me that getting admission wouldn't be a problem. Also, funds for tuition fees and living expenses will not be a problem.

My only worry is whether my Visa would be granted as I have no employment histroy.

I obtained my BSc in Biochemistry in 2015 then I did a Postgraduate diploma (Pgd) in Microbiology in 2017. Since then, I haven't had a job; however, in 2018, I set up a cosmetic and skin care manufacturing business that is registered with the CAC. I ran that business for about a year and decided to quit. This was when I started learning programming and software development. Since 2019 I've taken a few courses online but I still have not gotten a job.

How will this affect my chances of getting my study visa approved? Someone suggested that I could get a fake work reference but I am afraid of going down that route. Please guys, kindly advise.

This was my chat with UBA and I truly tried it didn’t work

I really don't know with ur UBA bank, but I had GTbank dollar domiciliary corporate account, and I used to withdraw Euros from the ATM then. U cannot withdraw Euro cash from the bank, but u can use ATM and POS terminal. Even your Nigerian ATM card can withdraw money here, but it depends on the max limit set by ur bank. I had Zenith bank naira mastercard and when I went to Ghana I was withdrawing cedis from Ghana Bank ATMs unrestricted

Securing a PGD or Higher Diploma program in IT in Ireland is not entirely difficult a the course was designed for those without IT background. It is a 1 year program and you are entitled to 1 year post study work visa as well before proceeding for Masters degree.

Howbeit, it is very important that you have at least 2 certification results for the online courses you've completed before applying for your visa.

With respects to work, get a volunteer job ref please do not submit fake docs

Cheers

Why not pursue Canada express entry instead given that you have two certificates and some work experience?

Nope, that’s why there’s a Euro Dorm. If you have a Euro Dorm then you can use it anyhow you want. You can also sell your Naira here if you want.

You can actually withdraw Euro from your USD domicilary account here in Ireland. It will be converted at the going rate at the bank. I have done so severally!

Hi Icasng,
After the tuition fees have been paid in full and a 7000 euro education bond has been done. Can a balance of 4million in your sponsors account be enough to help secure an irish student visa or rather show sufficient proof of funds.
Please can someone help me here

Good afternoon everyone, I'm got admission to study business management as an undergrad in one the schools in dublin, but the issue now is I would need 10m In my sponsor's acc for the whole visa process. I don't know how to go about it because we don't have that kind of money. Just me and my mom in this, is there anyway I can go about it? Does anyone know if bank helps in this kind of situation? I'm loosing my mind. Would really appreciate appreciate all the help I can get. I applied for February intake so I have lesser time as the year is coming to an end.

The best you can do is to shift your admission to fall 2021.

Emirates requires a Covid-19 test from the designated laboratories or hospitals listed on their airline website. Anything short than that no work. If you want to avoid the test, use Turkish Airlines

Definitely- Premasters incorporated with a masters degree offer (Griffith as up to 6000 euros scholarship on this via difc) or top up degree option (this may be better as you can secure 1 year work permit to work fulltime before proceeding for masters).

UK is also an alternative for direct masters in Business for few universities.

On the contrary, there were people on my flight (Emirate) going to London who did not do a COVID test as it was not required for their final destination. The conditions for UK were similar to that of Dublin.. Locator form et al.

I did it and I felt I should not have done it as it was only for those heading to Dubai/UAE.

Have you checked if the course is on the critical skills list? Not that you can't study it but you have a greater chance of getting a job after studies if your employment is on the list
Don't really get what you mean, buh i will be given two years to get a job, and after that i will request for stamp 4 visa for permanent resident. Business management is however needed in every country, after tech i guess is business. With my experience here in Nigeria i guess it will give me a upper hand in job searching, moreover it will be easy for me to also seach for job in canada or uk.

Unfortunately that isn't how it works. The reason why IT and STEM courses are 'hotcake' is because it isn't really fancied by a majority of their people. They mostly do business courses and that makes picking you over their own people a much harder task.

That is why they have a critical skills list which highlights those professions that they have a shortfall in. If your profession is on that list, there is a high likely hood that getting employment after studies will be much easier. It is a lot harder if it isn't on the list.

Another thing is many of them have diplomas or certificates and can work with that and there are a lot of them doing that to work. Your chances against an omonile in your field is small oh!
