Even without a Uk experience he can get a job. I got a professional job about a week and some days as a software engineer with “No” Uk experience.
Luckily enough for me after 5 months I got a job with sponsorship. Let’s spread more hope ��. With the right skill set you can get that job.
I agree with you raising the balance will be a big deal even if he gets a job the next day so yeah he should have chosen a cheaper school. My wife is currently studying in Liverpool Hope uni and we paid 8400 after a scholarship (for 1st class and 2’1 holders. ) I understand that Hull is also cheap uni! Best of luck�



hosey:


If money is a problem, you should have chosen cheaper schools of tuition of 11 to 12000 pounds.

You can but wont be easy. You will have to rent 2 bedroom flat because of her condition. Who will help take care of her when she delivers. You will need furrher help. You must be prepared to do menial job for now as you dont have UK work experience. You should begin applying for work in Nigeria when you get visa.

Andela use to have tech bootcamps, not so sure if they still do it. There is a talent accelerator programme that Decagon does that pretty much is like a bootcamp. There might still be a few.

I am more of .Net MVC,.Net Core,Angular and React Js guy. Honestly i think there are lots of roles for different stacks. My coding test was to analyse a set of data, create a schema around it, perform some CRUDE operations around it, created a UI and there were marks allocated to proper coding standards around it and further additions and effizy wink you can add that earns you extra points. But the Q&A was alot around .Net/ Core, Architecture and Behavioural questions.

Braket:

Thanks for the update. With the job ads I'm seeing, there's a lot of opportunities in the uk software sector. Not surprised you finished recruitment within two weeks.

Do you mind stating your stack and what the coding test you did entailed.
It will be really helpful.

I think just as in every field you can always learn and i don't think there is an age limit to it. Programming can be a self taught approach so i advice you learn a-lot by practicing before you even start your BSc here. You can get courses from Udemy or go for internships/bootcamps and the likes you will do fine. Data Engineering is also the real deal now there are lots of opportunities as well!

Ijomobi:



Congrats bro, would like to ask for your option and advice for someone who's 30+ in age going to start Bcs in computer science afresh for the purpose of being a software Engineer or Data analyst can the person cope considering the fact that he doesn't have any knowledge in computer or programming at all.

thanks for your reply.

Salary range for Senior Developers and Mid-Level Developers is transparent for most roles as you will see them in the Advert, even though you can negotiate for higher pay. All depends on what you want and your experience. The office is in Lancashire

Do you mind if I ask what the salary range was? And where the job is located?

,That's how to determine what doing fine means

Exactly! Most salary they offer can sort you out for a month comfortably depending on your life style though.

ThinkPad01:


For now, I don't think the salary really matters for someone just coming in to the country. Getting your foot at the door and getting the Uk's experience is very important.

Thanks, I hope it helps others out there. It actually resumed 2nd November ***(typo error), Today makes it a month and some days with them.

This was really fast oo. Nothing as precious as when you are in a field that is looking for people.

Thanks for sharing and all the best in your new role .....

So i will share my experience. I got in Oct 17th 2020, I happen to be a software engineer and i can say that there are lots of opportunities in Software engineering once you know the craft and got some good experience. I got in on a Saturday and started applying on Monday lol. I enrolled and uploaded my CV in Total Jobs and edited my CV and took out the locations from my work places (watched this from a video and felt it made some sense) but my last role as a Software Engineer in one of the Big fours and a dev project for a US firm i added the location because i felt it will stand out.
I had a family friend that got me a GifGaff SIM the weekend i got in because i felt they will call. On Monday i received lots of calls and started interviews the next day, interestingly most of them went well, for those with software experience just study algorithms and data structures, although different firms have their own type of questions. One of the recruiters i spoke to that day said she has a role that just has two stages of interview and they are one of the big players in the Insurance sector in Uk and US, i saw the JD i loved it!, did the first interview, it was a Q&A with their Head of Engineering and some senior engineers, i was struggling to hear some of the questions but again they were not so difficult i did well and they scheduled the next day for the final phase which was a coding test to be submitted in two hours and i did it before the allocated time and went into a Pair Programming exercise and as God may have it also went well. We discussed salaries and they gave me an offer on Friday same week and i resumed 2nd December.
I recently applied for NI so the HR said that would not be a problem as i should update it on the portal once its ready. About my experiences so far, its been an interesting one even though we are all working from home due to the lockdown and most developers are scattered around the country and it seems to be a work from home policy till june next year i think.
Lastly i was specific about the firm because they are amongst the list of firms that can provide sponsorship and we spoke about its possibility next year. If you are a developer i think you will do fine in the UK! Cheers!!!

That was how one recruiter was trying to "bobo" me yesterday that once i work for 3 years then i can apply for ILR. I just told him OK. cheesy

Bourne007:
The same Tier 4/post study rules apply to dependants.

If your tier 4 dependant switches to tier 1 or 2, then the 5-year route applies on the day you are issued.

Good evening All, pls what’s the best/recommended bank for a student/ dependant. Preferably a bank without much kyc documentation. NatWest is requesting for proof of address ie Bank statement or Utility Bill or Tax. I am staying in an Airbnb and can not provide that.

There was an extensive discussion of this some months back on this thread involving people who are actually living in the UK now, if I remember clearly.

Go back and read it. I think someone even cited a decided court case in favour of their standpoint.
