Please I just got admission to unisaks, Msc Chemical Engineering. Please I want to know how easily one can get job in saskatchewan.
Is engineering really a good bet in that province??
I'm currently a student in Uniben studying industrial chemistry, I would love to go for a masters in chemical engineering in Canada, what would I need to prepare for since I'm switching to a different (but related) field.

If you did upfront medical, there is a 60% chance of approval.
If not, its a refusal.

Good morning, I made an online application for PGD in Global business management for 2019/2020. It keeps saying "Your application is still being reviewed, you cannot update the application". ]☆Please how long does it take for it to be reviewed/when can I update so I can pay for the administrative fee.
Thanks

Yes and No.
It depends on merit and what your intentions are

If you are a young guy or gal, you stand a good chance.
If you are being sponsored by the government, you stand a great chance.
If you are an older person, or a guy in his late 20s and you claim to be going for your undergraduate degree - there is a good chance you will be denied.
If you do not indicate or show that in the previous couple of years you had either been working or schooling, good chance you will be denied.
If you are an older guy or gal and you are going for masters, phd etc you stand a good chance.
If you are an older guy or gal, and you are married, and not travelling with your partner, you stand a good chance as you still have ties to Nigeria.

So a 30 yr old dude going for his first undergraduate degree will be denied 9 times out of 10 unless he has some remarkable story to tell. They know you are probably going to get lost when you get there.
what of a 24 year old going for an undegraduate degree?

Well, with regards to feeding, I live in another province, but the general rule is that it's cheaper to cook for yourself than to buy prepared food. Also, if you are going to be out during the day, for instance, attending classes, you'll save a lot of money if you make your own lunches (eg a sandwich and some fruit) instead of buying food from campus outlets.

If your school is offering your accommodation, I would suggest checking with them as to whether there are cooking facilities included.
If not, I would suggest asking if you can live elsewhere (ie somewhere of your choice, where you might have access to a kitchen).

Assuming you are able to cook for yourself, note that African food is more expensive here, so you should be open to trying new stuff. I would suggest avoiding convenience stores, as they are also expensive (you pay for the 'convenience' factor). I would suggest cooking for a week or couple of weeks and storing in a fridge.

It might be tough to stretch a $100 for a month, as I think the cost of living is higher in BC compared to other provinces. But you can always try.

For your grocery shopping, there are different types of grocery chains, from premium to less expensive. In my province, for instance, No Frills is a less expensive grocery chain, and they are also in British Columbia (BC). Some locations here are dingy, but some are surprisingly good and well stocked. You can get the same products as at a premium store for much less. There may be other similar, less expensive chains in BC. You can ask around. One thing to note is that the store brand for a product is almost always less expensive than the brand. So if there are several types of, say, olive oil, on a shelf in a no frills, I would suggest look for the no frills brand and compare the price to others on the shelf.

Hello, If any student here (already in Canada) needs CAD please let's talk. I need Naira and would give CAD.
Don't contact me if you are not in Canada or do not have a Canadian Bank Account. Thanks!

A number of people get admotted with a 2:2.....it is very hard however, as canada sees more students coming in, it does become more competitive. apply for a PGD as a bck up while you chase the masters.

I really want to say that nothing is impossible because where there is a will there is always a way. If your fees are $5k a term u could decide to start ur studies in winter and still have the opportunity to work full-time from may-september (beginning) maybe three or two jobs can really help ( I know lots of girls that work two jobs during the four months break one start by 9am-5pm in of place and do overnight job in places like Walmart 11pm to 7am) is not really easy( if a girl/lady can work that hard during the four months break it made me to stop and ask myself some questions). Believe me I have meet other nationality who do not depend on anyone (sponsors) to pay there bills.
You can always apply for scholarship the are really lot of it and could go a long way to in slashing your fees. Apply for as many of those scholarship as possible even if you don't meet all the requirements some times you will end up getting two to three scholarship,which is really helpful.
...........WHERE THERE IS A WILL THERE SHOULD BE A WAY
9am - 5pm and then 11pm -7am? Thats like two full time jobs bro...make person no die o
