Please house...A friend of mine would like to know if 7.5m Naira will be enough for a statement of account to process a Canadian student visa (2 years msc program)

With a tuition fee of Cad $20100 (5.8m Naira) for a year. Thanks

First how many years is the program, because he will have to show proof for subsequent years too

Also there’s a mandatory 10,000kCAD for living expenses he/she has to show along side money for Tuition and there should be little amount left in the account after all this

So let’s look at it

20100 + 10,000= 30,100k CAD * 300 = #9,030,000

Taking into account other factors I mentioned earlier , I don’t think it will be enough

Other Gurus will shade more light also

All the best

Good evening Folks,

Please pardon my naivety, what is BVL/Correspondence Letter?

Please, explain to me. Thanks
Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 17 by Chocs(f): 6:06pm On Oct 17
Hello Grace001

Adding to what @silvamania said, this amount is insufficient.

Your friend needs to show at least 30,100 cad (20,100 cad + 10,000 cad) And it should not be exact, some more money should be left after deducting this sum.

And if he/she is self-sponsored, the visa officer might want to check how he/she will pay for subsequent years.

Best wishes

Hello Dovelove543

BVL is Biometrics Validity Letter. When you get this letter, it means a decision has been made on your application and the decision would be corresponded soon (refusal or approval)

BVL means Biometrics Validation Letter...but it is usually sent to an applicant after a decision had been made on his/her application. Once you get a BVL, expect a refusal letter/correspondence or a Passport Request letter/correspondence within 24 hours

Nice weekend

First off, I appreciate everyone on here who give their time and effort to assist and painstakingly answer questions.

Home Ties: I have nothing yet in Naija except my family, so had to build on that, let them know my mum was widowed and I am the oldest so I definitely had to come back for them. Added my naija pension fund statement too.

We expect IRCC to publish list of DLIs with approved Covid19 readiness plans for their students especially international students. Students for those schools can start making travel plans from that date.

Hi Bolyboly,

U are Welcome......

The Minimum Requirement to apply for MASTERS in Canada is a 2.1 (2nd Class Upper).

Since u graduated with a 2.2,
a PGD/PG.Cert in a Biochemistry related program is what you should go for

Hello all
Please I intend to apply for a thesis-based masters program in Canada, but for my intended course most of the schools I’ve searched don’t require securing a supervisor prior to applying. Given this information Is it still necessary to contact faculty members? Because I see a lot of people doing this. Please kindly advise.
Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 17 by Chocs(f): 3:26am On Oct 18
Hello Queenmama03

If the course/ school is the type that gives everyone their prospective supervisors automatically then you can apply without contacting. But if it is the type that says a supervisor must eventually accept you before you can be admitted, then please make contact with supervisors and try to secure someone except you don’t mind the application fees going to waste if something goes wrong.

You can read the admission requirements and see if it’s stated there. It usually is. If it’s not, you can send the program an email to inquire.

Best wishes
