During the first lockdown, can't believe how many times I watched how to wash your car videos before finally grabbing a bucket of water and towel. The finishing was topnotch!!
YouTube videos to learn how to wash a car?? You've never washed a car before back in Nigeria or it's another way they wash cars over there?

Ah okay .. I no read reach that level grin so wasn't too sure what she meant.

Some Universities still have offer available for January 2021 and as long as partner gets admission, it's so feasible. And as you know, once documents are sent to UKVI, leave to remain is extended.

Aphrodite007:


She is already on tier 4 but I think I understand what you’re advising her; that she can now depend on her partner, who was once dependent on her. Nice plan but I don’t know how easy that would be or how feasible, so I’ll mute.

As for the “extension”, these are given when you do master’s and are an excellent student, or when you apply for a PhD but they force you to do a master’s first or if you’re doing a master’s and your dissertation is helping the professor with their research— so you get extended to phd, rather than starting afresh with admission, references and statement of purpose letters.

The above is why her admission is dependent on the professor’s health.

How much is the training.....£80 ?.

If yes then why not... there are not many options for student jobs these days due to lockdown up and down ... if you need the cash then hold on to what available until the desirable becomes available

You guys that buy stuff from aliexpress, what's their delivery like? How long does a standard item take to UK?

I rarely buy things from sites that don't offer next day delivery e.g Amazon prime, Argos

I used to think aliexpress were for people buying in bulk to resell

Retail - AliExpress
Wholesale - AliBaba

Delivery on AliExpress takes anywhere between 3 to 6 weeks depending on seller/shipping mode.

O I see, thought they were used interchangeably.
3 weeks , that's a lifetime!
Re: Living In The Uk/life As A UK Immigrant by Mimzyy(f): 9:51pm On Dec 18, 2020
Yeah it’s quite a long wait. I buy from there if I do not need the item in a hurry. Often way cheaper than what’s obtainable on eBay.

That’s what the reviews are useful for. Go through reviews before making any purchase. E.g in the attached pics.
