Please house what does this email mean exactly. Is it a bad thing? Please I'm really confused and need clarification. All the gurus in the house

Email is self explanatory, decision has been made, it will take some time to produce vignette sticker if visa is granted and affix to your passport.

Wait for a collection mail from TLS, unless it's a refusal, you'll most likely not receive a decision email.

You are so onpoint...

If you have the means to pay your tuition fee at least 75% from 9ja pls do. It makes life easy for you.

The humbling part is so true, but you will always get consolation in the fact that you are getting the pounds (that's if you are not used).

It's always not a good start but with dedication and focus it's achievable.

It's better if you are married like you said. Your partner will be able to work unlimited hours and makes things a bit easy for you.

On schooling and working I feel its more about planning. Once you plan your school and work life you will be better for it.

johnsonpal:
Hi guys, Today makes it exactly my 2 months in the UK. Here are MY honest opinions. Please note te I'm not anyway discouraging anyone from coming o, In fact, come and see yourself.

I think the UK is a little overrated, yes, there is stable light and whatnot, yes, this is an advanced country, the system works, but honestly, I don't know how to explain this in detail, Let just say I am not that impressed

Most of us are coming via school so here

School:

School is no joke here, especially if you are coming for masters, The Assignment doesn't stop. It will most likely take soo much work to be able to work part-time and come out with a very good grade.

Finance :
You can not, at least most likely pay your school fee or balance while working part-time. I see a lot of people rushing schools with 2k, 1k deposits, and hoping they will pay the almost 95% or so left while working. It's practically impossible. I'm still a JJC but I have been able to work three types of jobs s, Btw, these are the common part jobs(warehouse, cleaning, social care, "hospitality" ). Amazon is currently paying the highest of 11/hr(if you working the night shift ).

So a quick breakdown.

The cheapest school fee is between 9 - 11k (Hull teeside, the Cheapest school I have seen ).let say you pay a max 4k deposit and your school fee is 9,000. You have a balance of 5k to pay right?

You work Amazon 20hrs weekly earning 10.50/hr that is 207/Weekly and 828/Monthly

Expenses: Rent(Depending on location), Transporation, Feeding

Say you can save half of this after monthly expenses, It would take you at least 11 months to save up your school fee balance of 5000 pounds. Side note, Most schools have a payment schedule, some 50% before enrollment, 25 % after 2 months, and 25% middle of your program. For a one-year course. I haven't seen a school that will spread it over 11 months. (might be wrong though )

This simple calculation is for the cheapest of schools and some form of extreme savings. Even though you can work unmetered during holidays, will your school give you that grace?

Schools will report you to the home office(You don't want to have any issues with the homeoffice) if you can't meet up with the school fee schedule, I have 2 guys in my school currently facing this issue. Some schools are nice though, (maybe I will compile a list of such schools later)

My advice: 1. Before you pay that school deposit, Ask questions about their payment plans and schedule.
2. Pay at least 70% of your school fee before leaving Nigeria, the stress that comes with worrying about money here is crazy
3. Get married - yeah if you can ( Your spouse can work unlimited hours while you school, )


Life: People are generally very nice here, don't mistake their nicest and warmth for another thing o. I have a story to share about this later


Clothing: Please get pairs of very comfortable shoes, like the emphasis on very! you will be walking a lot ( Buses wouldn't take you to your doorsteps and Taxis are expensive), well some people are very loaded. For the average person like me so ditch your brogues and heels for trainers. most people here wear trainers anyways. Get warm clothing. it really gets cold and they say it's not even winter yet.

Work: This place will humble you, coming from a corporate background to washing dishes and standing for 10hrs in an amazon warehouse. This has been a very humbling experience for me. Side note: Most temps jobs require you to stand all for hours, see why you need those comfortable shoes.

It's also tempting to work more than 20hrs weekly, but please DON'T!

Again, Please get your finances right, and have a reasonable plan in place. You are practically on your own here, no one cares.

Final note: I don't understand why Nigerians here are cold and unwelcoming(it's only on nairaland I see people going far and beyond). Make friends with the Indians(they are so helpful to one another it makes me jealous) and local if you can

Again, these are my opinions and personal experience, it necessarily might not be others. Good luck

It's just with the NHS. don't go and get yourself into trouble. Read the link and read what you posts again. Totally different.
donogaga:




Tier 4 student in the UK. You're no longer restricted under 20hrs work limit anymore, provided you pick up care job.

Our commitment is far beyond securing a Visa but to make you comfortable once you're in the UK by getting and linking you up with a reliable CARE job once you get to the UK.

So the news is as long as you are doing the CARE job, you can now work indefinitely.

If you paid for courier service and still, after your documents arrives at VAC they still ask you to come pick up your passport instead of sending it to you, then that's a red flag I guess.

This happened to some of the guys here who had applied for other categories. Heard its been the trend as well.

Which did you settle for bro?


FrankFrenzy:
Good morning beautiful people, and happy weekend to us all.
Please I need an honest and unbiased advise, I have a few unconditional offers for this January, but prominent among them is Ulster University Belfast and Northumbria University.. I’m also expecting an offer by next week from BCU, now my concern is I’m scheduled for TB test on Monday, pls I need an advise on which school to use on the certificate. Ulster I’m in Belfast Northern Ireland while Northumbria is in Newcastle. Any one who knows about either or both cities should pls advise a brother so I don’t make mistakes or wrong choices.
Note. Ulster is £1000 cheaper than Northumbria, Northumbria is rated top 25 in the uk while Ulster is top 45, but the latter is in Northern Ireland.
@Justwise other experts in the house, kindly advise pls��

I agree 1000 percent

We paid 33% of fees in naija. We are now at 55%.
Thankfully, RGU has been flexible with the payment plan

Have a PLAN for ALL bills
My spouse's business in naija pays our rent here and she works almost 200 hours a month (night shifts) and we have two kids .

I was swimming in coursework and could barely work. If you are married, you have to work together as a team more than ever

Re: Uk Student Visa/tier 4 Pbs - Your Questions Answered Part 6 by Afmaag123: 7:26am On Dec 14, 2021
You will need to get Legal document. ie sole custody document from the court. It takes a process.

When you wanted to take out the money, you didn’t ask if there’s any consequence but now you are rushing upandan.


Well if the money you took out didn’t affect your overall POF, you have nothing to worry about.

Am just being told by UBA that CBN has suspended payment of school fees, has anyone experienced this? The lady said she receive a mail from CBN at around 5 pm yesterday. Please what's the way forward, I need to pay 50% of my tuition urgently.
Re: Uk Student Visa/tier 4 Pbs - Your Questions Answered Part 6 by Afmaag123: 8:37am On Dec 14, 2021
Ofcos you can. Make sure you get it at the court. Hope you know its not an Affidavit. It has to be verifiable.
You can also make care arrangements since she's a minor.

Has to be a month to your start date as stated on your visa

Canadaboyk:
Can one travel anytime as soon he gets the visa? Or it has to be a month to resumption? School resumes feb 23rd and it states on the later of entry that expected entry is January 21st. Can I go earlier than that? Kindly answer for those who have travelled

Thanks

Re: Uk Student Visa/tier 4 Pbs - Your Questions Answered Part 6 by duchess90: 9:04am On Dec 14, 2021
Hello,

That's one step..the next is to convince the home office that you have been solely responsible. How old is this child? What is his/her relationship with you? Where are the parents? Do you have all the paper work(school, medical,holiday) to back up your claim?
PS: Ensure all the documents are authentic and verifiable,because they will verify it,so the child doesn't get a ban like a minor posted here recently.

If you do then put your best foot forward

I don't think this applies to those working with recruitment agencies which is where most students work.

Anyways I stand corrected.


"Any care job"

No issue....

This is incorrect, it's has to be linked to the NHS.

From your explanation, the money was less than your POF. If the money goes less than your POF, even for a second, then you have to start counting again.
