Student In The Uk Vs Canada -how Much Can I Make As Student In UK On The Average by niceadebola: 9:02pm On Sep 16
Hello People,
Please I am about to choose between Canada(Express Entry) and going for my masters in the UK. I have only got my school fees of about 10,000 pounds. This means I would have to hustle for my feeding, accommodation and other basic needs. I want to enrol for M.Sc in data science and I have over 5 years of experience in the IT industry. Now, my questions are:
1. How easy is it for me to get student job (could be any kind of job just to survive)
2. Cheap cities with easy of getting student jobs
3. Prospect of getting job after M.Sc in Data Science
4. Getting Job in the UK vs Canada

Many thanks

I would be really interested in finding out whatever decision you finally take cheesy

- Msc in Uk is 1 year
- Msc in Canada is 2 years & Express Entry is super tough now.

What does Uk guarantee you? are you going to get a PR in the Uk after working for many years
How about Tech jobs in the Uk compared to Canada? have you done any research yet

@ednut1: People just want to leave Nigeria, they really don't care about Msc

Honestly why must it be this two countries? What about other countries in Europe. Have you tried Germany plus Germany has more IT jobs than the UK. You can view the job market on indeed and LinkedIn jobs.

If u have to go for Masters in data science, it means your data science skills was never good enough or it actually close to zero.

Go and buy 3 udemy courses for 10dollars each and keep your 10k pounds. When u finish you will be certain whether u want data science or not. Also, You will get better education in udemy than any Msc... especially a 1 year UK MSc that ends before u even begin.

How old are you(don't ignore)? Canada might be your sure bet.

Good point but I am currently in Germany right now and it is tough getting a good professional job if you don't speak the language. That Germany has more IT jobs than the UK I doubt that unless a fact pointing to that. Based on my IT jobs search in both I have noticed there are more IT jobs in the UK than Germany. Economy generally Germany is far better.The service sector is the king of the UK economy I guess the reason they have more jobs in the IT.

At the bolded, I actually believe learning on the job would be better and M.Sc data science is like just buying a degree. I have checked the course content and most of the technology you be taught can be learnt online or on the job. But I just want to use it to enter the country and stay. My concern is how much can a student make to pay their bill. In Germany, you can make 800€ a month depending on how much you want to work. Although in small cities it could be tough to get a job in Germany as well. But city like Munich, Berlin etc you can make over 1000€ a month if you want to.

If wifey is less than 29, she has at least 2 years experience (5 years is better). She can write ielts general and score 7.0 throughout. And you can also write a post graduate diploma, there is this one for IT professionals that WES recognize. And u Max out your IELTS u will be on 475. Last draw they did yesterday, they picked people with at least 472, which means u are ok. You will lose points when u lose 5 points once u enter 31, but u still have a very good chance as points will drops. You also can gain points depending on your wife's qualifications, work experience. I don't have all d calculations, but I know u have a decent chance. If u migrate n decide to do your masters in Canada, you only pay instate tuition.


If fact if your wife has a masters or post graduate diploma, and 3 years experience n not more than 29. You guys would be swimming in the 480s points as she will be the principal applicant.

The first picture, check upper right corner. That's your potential point. The second picture is if your wife is the principal applicant based on d scenario I described, your points could balloon into 483, well above the cut off.

UK is a good place but the cost of living is high and most cases when one is done with his/her program they toss u out. For me Canada is better but since you're in the IT route u should consider Germany, tons of opportunities there. Goodluck chale

They have reintroduced the post-grad Visa and it is the reason why I am considering it. I just want to know how much I can make to foot my bills.

This may not be related but if you are married, does it mean your wife is with you in Germany?

I remember for Uk, you can apply for Student Visa and state your marital status, It means your spouse can work full time as long a you are still schooling in the Uk.

Is this the same for Germany?
