I doubt
You just have to show you have funds to afford your stay and tuition.

Yes oh! Sent me another person's passport.

I sent emails to the embassy and VFS. The embassy said they have processed my Visa and I should contact VFS. Called VFS and they say they will sort it out. I'm so pissed.

Naijaforeigner:


Wow... are you for real? Wrong passport? Can you imagine?

Yo! I paid for passport courier service at VFS and today they delivered the wrong passport. I don't know whether I should laugh or cry

Thanks again.


Bracha:
So, here's something funny. All the while I thought Lagos was processing my visa as all correspondence to London was always redirected to Lagos. On getting the visa, it turns out it was issued by London.
I have these: lagosimmigration-at-international-dot-gc-dot-ca and Ldnimmigration-at-international-dot-gc-dot-ca


Travel / Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 15 by michelle5567: 7:16pm On Jan 10
Thank you. I will try this. But from the correspondence letter it is Nairobi that was processing the visa. Should I email Nairobi instead?

I only have this email address Lagos.immigration@international.gc.ca

Please does anyone have any other email address?

Bracha:
You can still make it.

5 working days after submission of passport, send London an email telling them your school has resumed and you need to go asap.

I hope this helps.

Spawne... Cranfield didn't request for a new or updated scholarship letter?
Education / Re: Nddc Postgraduate Scholarship 2014 by michelle5567: 6:00pm On Jun 19, 2015
I applied to Manchester Metropolitan University. They say I need a new sponsorship letter because the old one says it will expire 6 months from the date on the letter (13th October 2014). I felt this would happen but kept praying it went through. Now I have to find how to get another letter from NDDC and I thought all the NDDC running around was over. Chai!

Hello people! una don collect upkeep una don quiet. lol!

Please guys that deferred till September 2015 how far? Have you started preparations?

I have applied for my CAS and they asked for a new sponsorship letter because the old one said 2014. So I sent them the letter NDDC gave me for change of school and deferment. I am hoping they accept it.

Need your thoughts.

1. Can NDDC pay the awarding university all neccessary fess if you decide to do their online program and remain here in naija cos of your job.

2. Would you forgo NDDC SCHOLARSHIP already awarded, if you just got good paying job with an annual salary of over N5,000,000 with a car here in nigeria. You have to choose between going to some UK school and getting Masters and then coming back to get a job OR accept this job offer as stated above (by the way I Already have a Masters degree from UNILAG.

My fellow nairalanders, your thoughts pls

Please do not throw away yor job for a masters abroad. I have several friends that went for masters in the uk. Almost all of them still came back to Nigeria and are job hunting. I would advise that you take the job and do your masters in Unilag or if in a few years yu can take sabbatical and go and do your masters abroad. Masters is not everything!

Hello,

Please is there anyone who did not use one of the schools NDDC has a relationship with and their fees have been paid? Because all the comments I see here are Conventry, Cranfield and Salford related. How about other schools? I plan on resuming in September, I used a UK school but it is not one of the NDDC schools.
