Good.
Nobody like them anyway so no big deal even if they close their embassy in Nigeria. They have turned the embassy into a business venture which is tax free. People who want quality education will have to look elsewhere.
UK aint all that

I'm not sure about that, we Nigerians caused the whole thing, i'm worried that decent students might be affected if that proposal goes ahead.

Decent students (and immigrants in general) are constantly suffering from the bad reputation the bad eggs are putting on everyone. That unfortunately is a harsh reality prospects have to deal with. We brought it on ourselves.

Oh ok! that happens with many BBC video clips.

The UK Border Agency is proposing to rank Nigeria some other countries 'higher risk' as a result of abuse of student visa, in 2007 for example, many Nigerian students who were issued a student visa did not attend any course and some other immigration offences they mentioned

Re: Nigeria 'may be' Ranked As 'high Risk' By Uk Biorder Agency. by debosky(m): 12:21pm On Feb 08, 2011
There is no reason to be alarmed. Nigerians are already deemed high risk in practice so there will be little or no change to the actual processes you need to go through.

The difference will be felt by those countries deemed low risk, as the need to demonstrate you have funding for the intended course may be waived/relaxed. This relaxed regime will be primarily based on the history of other students from that country, majority of who have completed their studies and returned, unlike Nigerians.

Rushing through your student application will not make any difference - you will still be treated as high risk anyways. Anyone who has visited a British embassy outside of Nigeria will clearly see that the treatment in Nigeria is very different due to the high risk perception.

why?
Re: Nigeria 'may be' Ranked As 'high Risk' By Uk Biorder Agency. by beknown(m): 1:00pm On Feb 08, 2011
There is no need to panic about this.

If the UK carry out their threat, they will be shooting themselves in the foot.

Foreign students in the UK today are mostly Africans and Asians. Nigeria takes the greater share of student numbers from Africa. India takes the greater share of student numbers from Asia.

If the UK authorities cut visas to Nigerians and Indians, it will have knock-on effect on some colleges. Some colleges and even Universities may closedown.

The fees for foreign students keep increasing without control. Nigerian and Indian students are helping the UK with huge money pot for studies.

Time will tell because when Nigeria gets better, UK will not see many students from Nigeria anymore.

Cutting students visa to what? zero?

What can I say? They are just not serious. People will look for alternatives wella.
Re: Nigeria 'may be' Ranked As 'high Risk' By Uk Biorder Agency. by debosky(m): 1:13pm On Feb 08, 2011
No need to cut to zero - even a 50,000 cut (and add on the dependants) will make a difference to their stats.
Re: Nigeria 'may be' Ranked As 'high Risk' By Uk Biorder Agency. by dremoney(m): 3:04pm On Feb 08, 2011
Now this thread is more like hyping UK to me.

It should have read, Good news - Nigerians can think of a better alternative.

Why people still flock here's because they dont believe when we tell them Uk is as good as been in Nigeria save constant power n security (but na dat one go build me solid crib for island?)

In the boom years,people lounge mainly on credit. House, furniture, car, school, phone, travel, even food na on credit card.

Now they are in recession, where the job?

screw them, who cares, mshew!!

I have to agree with your analysis. This seems to be a kneejerk reaction by the coalition to tackle immigrants in the UK. Since they can not expel members of the EU, they are concentrating their efforts on non eea nationals.

Oh well, lets see what happens

I can always get my British certificate from Malaysia or Singapore even at a lower cost because there are so many UK universities there .What will I be going to the UK to do? Everybody Uk,Uk!! University of Nottingham,University of Derby,University of Sunderland,Oxford Brooks etc all these schools are in Malaysia,Singapore and even S.Africa.You don't need to go to the Uk anymore for these certificates. For instance,accommodation in Malaysia is about $150 per month,tuition fee which people pay as high as 21,000 pounds per yr in the uk is only but 8,000-11,000 USD in Malaysia,Singapore or even S.Africa and at the end of the day you are issued the same certificate,and might even be more knowledgeable than someone who attended the main campus in the UK.

Also,i think its high time we started encouraging these universities to start opening up campuses in Nigeria,since our country is among the highest ''exporter'' of international students to the uk.Doing so,to my knowledge,will reduce cost both for the school,students and their parents, and maybe upon graduation they could go to the uk for their convocation ceremony.

This bad rush to the uk is becoming worrisome.
