Travel / Re: General Information About South Cyprus Study Visa by Charles61: 12:44am
My humble advice to everyone wishing to travel to any European countries as a student.

1.
Always plan to have your living expenses to sustain you for like 3months. Pending when you will get your permit and get job. So ask people the average monthly feeding, accommodation and utilities with transport. And other registration fees with unforseen expenses.

2. Don't have it in mind, you want to come and start working big. Remember there are indians, paskistani, Philippines, lapal, Lebanon, Indonesia, malesia, Ghana, Togo, south Africans, etc that are in Europe to look for job too. Therefore, stay humble, start humble, and be faithful and consistent with that little job you start with. This is the reason why European citizens preferred asian over us.

I worked as a kitchen assistant in my first work place, in just 2 weeks, I could operate the chocolate machine, clean the mould, design the mould , help them arrange delivery products, package the chocolate.

In just one months, my boss, asked if I want asylum seeker paper, so as for me to stay in Cyprus. Which I said no. After 3months, I told them am living or they must increase my salary, and they should also do work permit for me. Which they agreed. Eventually, that same month I got a job in a multi- international company.

From cleaner to a big muilti-international company.

My boss and asked me, are you sure you re from Nigeria?
I said yes, then she said, you re the only Nigerian that I have meet who is different.
I replied her, there are thousands who are better than me.

Secret:
I started little with 400euro
Did my work faithfully and consistently
I did not complain, but was happy with my little beginning.
Contributed my own idea towards the company sales, which increased.
And God sees my heart and blessed with a job which I did not apply for.

3. Live simple, this is not time to got to beach, party, eat at restaurant. Go for lectures, go to your part time job, get things to cook in the market and go home to cook and eat.
Sacrifice before pleasure. Not pleasure before sacrifice. If you want pleasure before sacrifice. Then in just 6month, you will either find yourself doing yahoo, or drugs and you know the end of the story.

My first boss and colleague bought me different of wears because they realize I had been putting on same 3 different of wear for
More than 4months. But I made them realize that I have alot of clothes, but at this time. It all about my goals and not fashion show.

Ever since that day, there perspectives about me changes, the respect increases. And they love me more.

4. Make sure you finish your study, there are better opportunity with that certificate. You might not know for now. Don't look for money and forget study, you might end up loosing both. No money no certificate. Your case would now be like BOB( Boselo , Lose Bo)

5. Build your network with the citizen, your colleague at university, expeciallyThe citizen, and lectures and ask for help, about Job. apply for jobs every day, ask your universities, neighbor, etc. And don't sit down at home complaining that there is no job in Europe. If there re jobs in Nigeria, why not stay back? There are no job anywhere. ( job had been lost for long time) people re looking for it.

6. Pray and pray to God, and live a life that will make God show you his mercy and grace. Trust me, there is nothing without God.

Good luck guys

There is no job in South Cyprus, It is a difficult country and always be well prepared when coming here. You need a lot of Euros because the exchange rate is very high, 1 euro is 650 naira. Cyprus is not like Western Europe. I repeat there is no job, just have it back of your mind. The little job you can have here is already taken by the Asylum. They care more for refugees than students. Do your research very well. Anyone trying to convince you to come to Cyprus. I mean south Cyprus. He is getting a commission from the school. Assuming your tuition fees are 5000 Euro. He is getting a 1500 Euro commission as an agent. Nobody does anything for free. There are always benefits. Do your research very well if it is going to favor you or not. I am not here to discourage anybody but be well prepared and make sure you have steady income if not. Your name will be sorry. Good luck guys.

Anyone that is getting 5000 or have collected 5000 euro from you, for tuition fees. Both of you are sorry.

If I have 5000 euro when I came to study. Then I will just pay my 3000 euro full tuition fees, and balance my 1 year house rent with the 2000euro.

So stop complaining be you lack information, then you fall mugun. My university when I even paid the 3000 installment like for 1 year.

For work aspect, no International students get to European countries and start working in a big company, everyone start small. So stop making the same complain you made in Nigeria

1euro = #650 stop complaining to us, blame your government. When you start earning in euro and start sending as little S 100euro to Nigeria which would be 60k plus now. You will not come here to tell us euro to naira.

This is how you get it wrong, if you have fall for mugu, then don't discouraged other that are willing to help. 3 Nigerian student are in my room since Monday now. And when I read this your useless message. I really want to send them out today. But I realize that one day, my children will need someone help too.

My advice to you
Before you take any risk, make sure you do your research, analyze it, do your risk calculation. And never give your money to agent. Do it yourself.

With my first and second semester alone, I was able to secure fully funded masters in management and logistics in Indonesia And Brunei with accommodation free. Because they didn't include monthly payment.

If I sit in Nigeria with only my HND, who will ever give me masters admission with full tuition fees scholarship and accommodation.
Imagine the university called me like 50times to know why I declined. They even assign one beautiful girl to always chat with me on WhatsApp, to change my mind.

Oga, information is light. Get information and stop complaining

Hello house! I patiently took time to read everything that was posted here,I must commend all your effort providing useful information here......

i have been searching for a university to study my masters degree program.

I have National diploma in public administration,HND in public Administration and I rounded up my PGD program April 2021,my only problem right now is that the school I did my PGD only released first semester result so i am still waiting for second semester result to be out.
Will I be able to get a scholarship for a masters program if my result eventually comes out?
Do I needy ND,HND and PGD transcripts and certificates?
I have my ND certificate but i will get my HND certificate December.
I heard schools don’t give transcripts but they send directly to university.in the case of other schools I researched.

I believe with your full PGD transcript and HND, you would be able to secure msc in any administrative/management course.

But with your HND only and good statement of purpose, you can secure MBA with 70% tuition fees waver. The tuition fees is normally 10k euro.

Next intake would be from may - August next year. Check university of Cyprus for more information about there MBA and also make more research.

However, I only know about university of Cyprus, 70% tuition fees waver. There are other universities too. Try to search too.

Best of luck

If I'm to be honest your age might be a limiting factor for you. But I'll Tell you not to write your chances off.

Why not a masters, why a Bsc? Convince yourself do you think it will sell? You have to be very very very very very meticulous in your application.

Well, I don't think it's possible to get master with only NECO results

No. You will be asked to submit it. The WES website is so programmed that you cannot skip it.

I wanted to evaluate my BSc certificate for course by course because I indicated i got in through DE. It automatically prompted me to add my post secondary school certificate (ND and or HND). So I had no choice than to do so.

Thanks alot

Please, gurus, I will like to know if it is possible to travel with your wife and 1 kid for a 2 years masters program.

Secondly, I would need a guide on what documents would be needed.

Will 3 of us go for the interview together, or only me?

If my balance required by institution is 35k USD, do I need to provide more because my wife and kid are going with me?

Thanks alot

For those who are coming for studies in south Cyprus.

Please note the new rules.

You can't travel to other European countries if you haven't done with your studies. Embassies now have to contact universities before your visa is approved. And you would need to submit your transcript and letter from university.

Secondly, before your resident permit would be out, is around the range of 4-6months now.
So, no employer would employ you without resident permit. Therefore, you will need to have euro that would sustain you for 6months before you get a better job.

Only if you want to work as a farmer.

Hold your 2,000euro at the port of entry. Hence, you would be send back home.

Best of luck

Your institution will have to send it directly to WES because after your institution sent it to WES, WES will send it back to the institution to verify if the transcript originated from them or not before they start the evaluation proper.

It's a work visa with free accommodation and transportation.. My salary should keep me afloat always..

You mean you got working visa and no friend and family could help you? This is amazing.
With your Visa and employment letter/documents, even bank will loan you easily when they see your salary structure


Get your employment letter and visa
Go to Gtb with any of your family who have account with them, speak with the customer service about it, am very sure they will loan you.

Nigeria to Poland no go pass 500 euro ( 260k) aba, you re paying for one way ticket remember. Because it's working visa

I want to advice you guys. You could see that I kept talking about motivational letter.

Let me give you an exam.

I applied for a scholarship in Brunei and Indonesia for a fully funded sholarship with accommodation, air ticket and monthly payment.

However, I did not authenticate my documents from there embassy as they requested, but I made sure I explain why I could not in the motivational letter, I furthermore explain why I needed the sholarship badly, infact I explained how I love education but lack of money had been my obstacle.

With incomplete documents.

I got the fully funded Indonesia sholarship master's in management with my HND
Accommodation
Fully funded
One way flight tickets
But no monthly ticket.

Got Brunei sholarship master's in logistics but I can't go for now because I am still doing my MBA thesis till November.

Remember, motivational letter is like 45% of your application, so don't joke with it.

Write it like you are talking to your lecturer that you need help, write it from your heart.

Whites read alot, and they re very emotiontional and the only way you can capture there heart is via your letter.

Eventually, I learn this from my MBA in leadership and emotional intelligence course.
And it's really working for me.

I hope it's works for you guys too

Hello sir,

I am a civil engineering student and I will be going for my service next year by God’s grace. I have few questions to ask:

1. I want to come there for my masters in civil engineering ( I want to know if I can get a scholarship and job opportunities)

Yes, you can get partial sholarship like 50-70%

2. I’m the one to sponsor myself when I get there, I can get some funds from my parents to process everything that I need. can I use someone else’s account for the bank statement ?

Yes, you can use any member of your family bank statement with letter to back it up that the are ready to sponsor you.

But remember, it take like 3months before you could start working and as a student, maximum salary you can get is 500euro. But if you re IT guru or engineering guru, you would be earning like 1000euro.

3. Better still, can I run my masters in another field I.e be a software developer or engineer instead.

Yes, with a good motivational letter. You might be able to prove to the committee why you want to do your master's in other course.

I await your response

Thanks

Good morning everyone, pls I have a question..
I have both OND & HND in Building Technology, and I graduated with upper Credit, what's the chances of me securing an admission to run a master's program in a south Cyprus university?

The truth is that, it would be hard for you to get admitted for master's with HND. However, it's possible with a good motivational letter.

Second option, getting MBA admission is 100% sure with HND. Eventually, one thing you need to know about NBA is that.
You can only use it to get PhD in management, leadership organization, marketing etc in country like USA, Canada and other european countries.

So it's depends on what your long term goal is.

However, for now, next admission for international students would be open next year may. Because lecture start by September and if you risk it to come late, you will miss class, and when you miss class, that automatically re- run which you will pay like 300-500euro for each cousre again. Trust me, it not easy to get even 50euro here

Wait oh! How would you survive in Poland if at the beginning you don't have flight money?

Accommodation alone would be around 200-250euro/month
Utilities around 40-50euro/month
Feeding 20-60euro/months if you cook yourself.

It's better you think about the journey before you embark on it. The worst thing about foreign countries is that.
No one cares about your condition.

It looks like you are looking for advice so as to advise someone. US schools are actually expensive. Most people look for scholarships. To begin with applying to schools in the US it is better to look at standardized tests such as GRE and TOEFL prepare well for them and ace them. They can also help the person to get scholarships.

I really want guru who are in united state to help me with this information please. A friend of mine who is doing his master's in Canada finds it tough to pay his tuition fees, accommodation and other living expenses, even with his part time job. And his tuition fees is 14k CAD.

However, this 40k, 50k USD fees even after tuition fees waiver, some total tuition fees still remains 25k usd. am really curious about how would one pay the tuition fees, when we all sincerely know that 60% of people traveling are sponsoring themselves.
Are people dropping out of university?

Even with 1k USD dollar job per month can't still balance the 25-50k USD.

Please I just want more understanding before taking a step or advicing any other person
