Please I want to apply to university of Limerick, Ireland for M.Eng Mechatronics. The application fee is €35 but when I get to the student on-line payment page and input my GTBANK or WemaBank debit master card details and click pay. A 5501 error message displays on my laptop screen saying that " this transaction has already been processed contact our merchant if in doubt". I have tried making payment since last night still the same thing.

I emailed the school last night and they replied this morning that the issue is from my banks and I should contact them for explanation.

I went to GTBANK this morning to know whats up. Customer care says that if it's a naira debit card it won't go because they have put restrictions on card for transactions to merchants due to rampant fraudulent activities thesedays.

Please guys how can I make my application the deadline for applications is June and the earlier the better.

You can send an email to gtb's FX dept as you are eligible to use your naira card for 100 usd equivalent monthly. Or better yet find someone who has a dollar card

Thanks. I know abt GTBANK's 100 usd max limit a month on naira debit car but I haven't made any FX transactions this month of April with my naira debit card. I don't know what's the issue and I don't have any dollars in my dollar account. I guess I will tell my uncle overseas to make the payment for me with his account.

thank you for your reply, please one last question, I have enough money to last me for my first 2 months in Ireland, which means, I need to get a job in Ireland before that 2months elapse.

I saw online that students are only allowed to work for 20hours/week.

So my questions are:

1. Will the minimum wage be enough to take care of my living expenses? accomodation, feeding, transport.

2. How long does it take to get a GNIB card in Ireland after arrival?

3. Do you think it's possible to get a job in Ireland within 2months of arrival? because if I don't get a job after that 2months, I'm toast.

I'll suggest you plan for 4 months. Covid has placed a lot of drag on processing times for GNIB / IRP cards , you may however be lucky to get a casual job within 2 months but its better to be safe than sorry.
Having 2000 euros to 3000 euros as settlement funds is okay depending on where your campus is though

Submitted my visa application but could not certify at high court since courts are on strike, I had to only notarize all sponsor documents, including my sponsor data page..please I will want to ask, can the embassy verify sponsor data pages/visa pages? If so, the authenticity of his information if verified will be positive for my application. Can embassy verify sponsor data page/visa page even if he didn't do biometric?

Here’s the story:
My dad originally had a property which he had the original deed bearing his name and Surname (our family name).

He gave me ownership of the property and told me to do with it whatever I please and I told him I was gonna sell to complete my funds for my studies and he consented.
So, I sold some plots from the main deed and deeds were made in my name (same surname) from the original plots and buyers have paid into my account.

Do I need to get a deed of gift? If I need to, how do I get this deed of gift?

Please give me detailed guidelines.
Thanks so much.

Just so you know I charge for this.

If your dad is alive , he should write an authorisation letter or declaration stating he gave you the property / properties , attach his ID and your birth cert also include the new legal deed of assignment from you to the new buyer with lawyers seal.

Hello, family; how is Waterford Institute of Technology? I'm applying there this week.
I'm going for Electronic Engineering.

Waterford is lovely. The student union bond is tight and the city is not too fast not too slow. Lectures are intense but with proper planning and God, you can excel!

Thank you so much for your response smiley I am gathering up a few extra savings and also looking to do some paid teaching or other work to cover Creche fees so that 16,000 will be solely for rent and our upkeep. Please are you able to help with any leads for affordable accommodation around WIT? Ideally, I would be renting from January 2022 because I would complete first semester from here in Nigeria. Thanks again!

Unfortunately, renting is a big thing here. You can get a place but it's best to see what you like before paying. There are so many factors that go into it like heating, distance from school and from shops. Then with a baby, some people might not want to share apartments with you. Best thing is to get here before looking for a place.

Another good thing this year was that studies was online. If school is back to normal by year end, accommodation will become scarce again

Hi everyone smiley

I would really appreciate your responses, especially if you are in Waterford (cc @Dwebb55) or you are a Nigerian PhD student who has travelled to Ireland with a baby/family members.

I have just been offered a fully-funded PhD for 4 years at WIT. I intend to go with my baby, who would be about 8 months old by September and I am really anxious about sorting out child care. My questions are:

1. Creche fees in Waterford seem very pricey, from my research (170-200 Euros per week). How have you handled child care while in Ireland? Is there an option to go with a family member (ideally my 60-year-old mum) to support with child care? Please feel free to share any tips that could make child care cheaper and stress-free for me.

2. In case I am not able to go with my mum, is 16,000 Euros enough to cater for modest housing, full-day Creche fees, and upkeep for me and my baby every year?

3. I would really appreciate some advice around finding affordable accommodation in a safe and child-friendly area within Waterford City.

Thank you in advance for your response smiley
Congratulations for the PhD studentship.
Accommodation in Waterford isn't that crazy like Dublin. You can get a decent place as low as 250-300€/month.
If you're not a lavish spender 250€/mth (at most) is enough for feeding.
Student visa won't allow you to bring your mom or family member. It is not allowed.
Don't really know much about crèche fees. But you get small home creche that doesn't really cost much.
Judging by the stipend amount, you should still have some extra cash left monthly.
I hope this helps.

Nigeria was added couple of weeks ago to the Compulsory Hotel quarantine list. That means you will be required to quarantine in a govt approved hotel for 10-14 days.

To be exempt, you must have a negative covid test on arrival and must have gotten 2 shots of the approved Covid 19 vaccines : Oxford , pfizer and another one

I applied for a study visa and a join family visa (i.e my spouse and 2 kids) at the same time and within 5 weeks of application, the visas were issued to all of us. We applied directly without going through anybody.

My people, God still perform wonders. We prayed like no tommorow.


Hi smiley I am currently in your shoes...Incoming funded PhD student who wants to apply with spouse and 1 child. Please can I pm you? It would be great to learn about your documentation and proof of funds. Thanks!

Correction. You can come with your family if you are doing a PHD. Also, getting a place for less than 300 euros in Waterford will be extremely difficult and even the ones for that amount will have low BER ratings and she can't have a baby in there as it will be very cold. If she is coming alone she can wing it but with a child, it would limit the options she has
