Calm down you don't know his plans or his uncle plans. It's better to stick with what he has stated and work with that.
I don't know how part-time work,
studies or changing his plans came into place because he never stated that aspect. Nowadays you can study and prepare for classes online from anywhere as long you have internet.
Quite frankly - you are right!

Hi guys, I have a little misunderstanding, I booked my flight to Birmingham, now my uncle that lives in London is asking me to come over to his place to quarantine in London, since I don't have any place Birmingham yet, I initially planned I was going to stay in a hotel for fifteen days to quarantine and try get a place to live before he came into the picture. So he has sent my his address in London for locator form. Now my my problem is my flight is heading to Birmingham not London, I have a layover of seven hours in Instanbul, can I reroute from Birmingham to London at Instanbul? And at what cost if it is possible?
Or , if I can get to Birmingham and head to London by Bus will the immigration disturb me about the address I filled in my locator form being in London at Birmingham airport ? Will it raise any eyebrows?
Sometimes- one is better sticking to his or her plans than changing it mid-way. You still need to sort your accommodation, you need to prepare for your classes and also find a part-time job. You can always see your uncle once you are settled. This is on basis that you have made plans already and you were ready to fly out. Your uncle won't come around to look for a house for you and the isolation period isn't anything anymore with the change in rules.
Apologies but my 2 cents.

Does anyone know the rules around dependents traveling to the UK before the main applicant?
The dependent (husband) wants to go first to sort out accommodation and the main applicant (wife) will join with the children.
To the best of my knowledge - I do not think you can do this.

Hello, anyone in Hatfield Hertfordshire?
What’s rent like over there? I see on Rightmove £1,250 to £1,300 for a 2 bedroom ��♀️
Is rent negotiable there?
As one who used to live in Hatfield, I'd say the cost you have quoted sounds about right. More so if you are looking at 2 bedroom houses as against flats.
You may wish to consider Brookmans Park, Welham Green or Colney Heath for accommodation which should be cheaper to Hatfield and accessible via Uno bus to the University.
Best of luck.

What are the financial requirements a STUDENT needs to meet in order to apply for mortgage please?
I believe this depends on your financial stand. Do you have a steady income in the UK and not from overseas. Duration of the visa. What is your disposable income monthly and how many dependents you have. These are requirements that you need to review first before researching on the broker that may take you on especially within your visa category.

What else could be the real problem? He's trying to explore a cheaper route with me bn the scarificial lamp because I'm a woman and preg.
- A problem already is that the story is not straight and I don't mean from you but I mean you are unsure of the story to paint.
- Your applicant and that of your husband will be revisited and if no threat to life was mentioned that will become a problem.
- Your husband & your records will be checked with HMRC which will probably even expose what you have been up to since you came into the country.
- Finally, don't cause problems for yourselves and for people coming behind, because the moment you throw in that application, just imagine someone casting a torchlight on your lives.
- worst worst worst case
, just switch to student visa and vice versa till you get to 10 years. Or better still go through the post study route and pray to the Heavens save you!

Hello seniors please I need your input regarding choosing courses
For someone who did International Relations but working as a sales manager in FMCG for 7years now, what course is best to choose to get sponsorship in the Uk
MA international relations
The UK has got a number of professions in the shortage occupations list as well as a list of companies that hold licence to sponsor. How about checking them out?
What if someone here tells you that either of the two courses may aid your sponsorship and when you get to the bridge it becomes a problem. What I am driving at is, your skills and experiences may make a company go all out for you to get you sponsored so it is best you do a lot research to determine your path way.

Good day all
Please I need sincere advice about this. My fiance applied for a UK visit visa recently with the help of an agent and the application was denied based on him not able to prove that he will return after his visit and he was not banned. The agent submitted that he was married with a kid and include a fake religion marriage certificate and birth certificate and in the real sense he was not. We are doing our court wedding this week and he can apply has my dependant by November to join over. I have my visa already and will be traveling next week. how Can we go about the other marriage certificate included in his application and the fake name included. Thank you God bless you all
The way I see it, it doesn't look good. The way forward would be to come clean and be apologetic for the lies told in previous application. There is no point forging documents again for separation or divorce it will backfire "again". Best to be honest at this point.

Be careful of people who make payments on your behalf. You may be asked to contact someone who will use a fraudulent card and charge you the money or its equivalent plus service fee. Once the real and true owner of the card ask his or her bank for refund, your application will get declined and you will be blacklisted straight away. Don't be deceived that it works for some, ignorance is not an excuse.

I really don't know where to rope this case in and the possible outcome with the dude involved.
A guy had an affair with a white babe and later ended the relationship.( babe was toxic)
Lots of stories flying around them but what captured my interest is that the babe accused him of rape.
They did it without cd and along the line she told him to use withdrawal method but dude poured everything inside and its classified as rape.
Is this even possible?
He will be taken to court soon.
Me, I no understand o.
This doesn't sound good at all. He is best to consult a lawyer to seek advice from here, otherwise it could potentially ruin him if he decides to walk bare, it doesn't good. Consent is the key here.

You are just lashing out because you got called out for making a mistake.
Why do you move abroad with larger family if you have no accommodation waiting or made an arrangement for one?
When you failed to plan then you planned to fail, you have two options when moving abroad with family of 1,2 or more.
1. Main applicant moved first, stay in a hotel, BnB, AirBnB to settle, get accommodation before moving the rest of the family.
2. Pay for student accommodation for one semester, use that opportunity to get something cheaper and suitable for family.
Its not rock scientist that if you moved with larger family it will cost you a lot to stay in a hotel or AirBnB.
The reason you gave for the lack of accommodation is not true because:
1. We have had PSW before for many years and there was no accommodation crisis then.
2. The UK was still a member of EU then hence many EU students and other EU members can easily troop into the UK as they wish but still many foreign students still get accommodation.
Years ago when i moved from Bradford to Portsmouth, i travelled to Portsmouth first(this is about 6hrs journey) stayed in a hotel for just a day, got list of private landlords from the university and the next day i viewed 3 properties and was able to get one. I moved back to Bradford to pack my stuff.
Yes you were desperate for a place and that was why you offered to pay more than the asking price.
This is totally true. People need to be more strategic about moving otherwise undue desperation sets in. Offering to pay more for accommodation pcm not even deposit? Naah
| Travel / Re: Uk Student Visa/tier 4 Pbs - Your Questions Answered Part 6 by humblemoi: 6:23pm On Sep 24, 2021 |
Yes I got a tenancy agreement
You have taken the risk already.. Best to wait it out and hope that your visa turns up in good time. If you paid for deposit and decide to suspend your tenancy, the landlord may use the deposit paid to cover the month(s) you do not pay for and find someone else to take up the property.
Hopefully it all sorts itself out in a week or two.

With KLM, you transit at schipol (Amsterdam) ...... With Airfrance, you transit at CDG or ORLY (if you transit THROUGH ORLY , (YOU MUST CLAIM YOUR CHECKED IN LUGGAGE). Before you make your way to CDG.... You still end up at LHR..
With all this transits, ensure you check your last mile return flight, before you book. Not checking could mean your return flight is either within an hour or 8 hours......
You could also book either KLM/AF, and checkout via LCY (London city airport)....... If you reside in the east/SE...... LCY, would be your best last mile stop......
NB : Also ensure you have a transit visit, if your flight stops at ORLY.....
I don try........
Will the issue of transit visa be applicable if outbound is from the UK to Nigeria via KLM and inbound is via Virgin Atlantic from Nigeria to the UK?

I am in Nigeria,
No I don't monitor the credit score, but was told I can't access the loan cos I am owing a financial institution,
Trying to access specta loan from Sterling
If the bad facility and loan you're trying to get is with a Nigerian bank, then it is best to sort out the bad loan as records will continue to hinder you given how BVN is now used all across the banks.

Good evening, please I need professional advise, I need to access a loan in the bank but I have a facility that has gone bad, thereby affecting my credit score.
1. If I reschedule the loan and it goes back to performing, will it reflect automatically on my credit score?
2. I heard even if I clear the bad debt I will still not be able to access this facility until after 6month before my credit score goes back to normal, how true is this?
Bankers, Gurus in the house please help I am for January resumption.
What country are you at present?
Do you monitor your credit score?
For how long has the facility gone bad?
What bank are you trying to access the loan from?

I have the international driving license.
Can this allow me to drive upon landing in the UK?
What else can I do so I can drive when I enter the UK?
As a student arriving in the UK soon, is there a major reason why you would like to drive a car?
Buy a car
Get a valid insurance on the drivers licence you hold
Ensure the car has a valid MOT
Tax the car
Lastly ensure you know the rules of the road, especially when driving during different seasons.

Thank you all for all your contribution here. It's been really informative. I have a pressing issue and I really need advice here.
I am married and intend to go for my master in the UK and my wife also wants to go for her Bsc in Nursing. The following are my questions:
1. Do we have to separately apply for our students visa
2. Can she go with me as a dependant and just school there since dependants can either work or school
3. What are my chances of successful approver if she applies as a dependant as regards to my home ties since I intend to use that .
4. Should I go alone then she joins me after I have settled for some time.
NB: There's enough funds to carter for both of our schooling.
All inputs are needed. Will be here to answer more questions if need be. Thanks all
1. Yes - you can apply separately as long as you have the funds to cater for both fees. Bear in mind, an undergraduate student can't apply for dependants (if you have plans to switch in the future).
2. Yes - she can apply as your dependant and work/school while in the UK.
3. It doesn't matter as per ties, so long as you have the funds and can establish valid reasons you want your family close by.
4. Doesn't matter if you have the funds and can go together.
