Congratulations to your sister. Please if it is not too much to ask, what course is she going for and what school?
|Travel / Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 20 by Mudicua: 9:03pm On Sep 20|
Please I have a question.
To find out why someone is denied, which is better to use, ATIP from the IRCC website, or GCMS (from any of the online GCMS sites) notes?

Please suggestions will be highly appreciated.

It has been ages.
I just dropped by to say happy new month.. and encourage everyone to keep their chin up, and be positive.
Thanks to Frank, Lekiboboe, Awys, Justmellow and all the gurus in the house who still keep this forum thriving.
I will try to drop by more often.
Y'all have a beautiful month of March. May it bring you all great news.

Unfortunately IRCC or CIC have their own mind and their own ways.
Their ways cannot be explained at all.
Rather than worry your head about why IRCC is acting the way they act, try to channel the energy into the things you can do at the moment to make your application fast (such as sending emails, updating your application with new info if you have any or if need be, keeping the school abreast of your situation and exploring other possible options they have).
So, send an email to the office attending to your application (infact add other IRCC offices that serve Africa), asking for update on your application, and tell them the reason for asking and why it is urgent you know what is happening.
Also contact your school on other possible options such as deferring to next term.
However bear in mind that you may not be able to attend school this fall. Key word is MAY.
At this rate, we know you cannot meet the deadline date even if you get a PPR this night.
You will need to send it for counterfoil... that takes approximately 2 to 3 weeks to get back.
Then your travel plans and preparations...(airports are still closed so entails more logistics to get out of Nigeria)
Still keep your hopes up... and fingers crossed you get feedback (a positive one) from IRCC soon.

So I assume you are in the agricultural field... or more like plant science or anything that has to do with plants or seeds. lol..
Well first things first... do not rely on only one supervisor.
Have you gone to the department's profile page to check for other potential supervisors?
I am certain there will be other persons also in the field.
Look at their profile, read some of their work and then contact them if the first one you sent to do not reply by when she said she will be back.
https://agbio.usask.ca/faculty-and-staff/plant-sciences.php (I am assuming this is the department, hence my posting the link )
As for the bolded it depends on what you and the professor agrees on... usually Skype, Zoom, Webex works. That is up to you both.
I think not just CV, but also a copy of your research proposal would be helpful in the decision making of a professor.
However if she is interested, she will ask to see your research proposal.
|Travel / Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 17 by Mudicua: 7:33pm On Jul 23, 2020|
I love this your response,
Everything is here.
Over here there is dignity of labour. Wash plate, cleaner, serve food. So far you are able to legally survive. Who would have thought one day that cleaners, garbage truck drivers and delivery men will be termed "essential workers"? but this pandemic brought to fore that all jobs no matter how we see them are very important to the economic survival of the society.
Many of the professional and hot cake jobs we see people hold here are built on the foundation of the washing plate and cleaning jobs they held earlier. I have seen someone's CV that said over 10 years experience in service delivery and i noticed that he started working as a teenager cutting lawns during summer, then while doing his bachelors he was a barista, a dishwasher, a cleaner, a front desk officer and gradually rose on the ranks to be a customer service professional today. All his experiences cannot equate a person who graduated tops with masters in personnel management or service delivery.
And that is what they look at here. The ability to deliver... not fine credentials.
Thank you for this.

When you say Saskatchewan do you mean the province or the university?
There is Uni of Regina and Uni of Saskatchewan.
And both schools take Nigerians.
What course do you intend to study? Does it require you getting a supervisor?
Also how did you send the email? Do your research interest align with the potential supervisor?
These are some things you need to put in mind while sending an email to a supervisor.
Now that yu got an auto email.. the professor may be on leave. Do not forget it is summer and they can still take time off. However you can read up about the other potential professors suggested and contact them if you cannot wait. The thing is even if you send an email to them, they will most likely want to schedule an interview with you to get a feel of who you are... and if you are a match.
With regards to funding, it is the prerogative of the department to determine if you get funding. But yes, international students get funding.
I hope this helps.

But US is not Canada na.
First of all US and Canada are not the same so why would you want to compare both?
it is like saying schools in UK takes 3rd class graduates for masters, therefore schools in other places would also do so if you can do an evaluation of your certificate. Forgetting the schools have their own admission guidelines.
To piggy back off that, some schools in US can even take a 3rd class degree in for masters especially if you have work experience. Not so much so in Canada.
Moreover, schools are independent institutions and what persists in one school may not necessarily occur in another school even within same county, talk more of schools being in a separate country. You have to do a lot of research and digging to find out schools that may have similar admission requirements across borders.
As for WES, some schools in US and in Canadian do not use WES cos they rely on your transcript and not WES evaluation in making decisions.
However if you think you should be able to run your masters, then go ahead and do a WES eval, and then send it in for your application.
I would also advise that you contact the schools of your choice and just find out your admission chances with what you have. That way you will know what to do exactly.

This is what happens when people have false expectations about a place they are going to. The notion that you can work to survive is what puts people in a lot of trouble on this travel abroad journey.
This journey entails a lot of financial obligations no matter how we want to think otherwise.
why put yourself in a quagmire thinking things will work out just like that?
Even in Nigeria, we pay tuition and fees before we start school or register for classes... max before exams.
Why do we sometimes think abroad where things are much more organised is where we can get away with it?
The perception is a false perception and I think your friend has to rethink this decision.
Your friend is setting himself up for trouble, and these are my reasons below:
1. His chances of pulling that off is very slim for the following reason:
a. He has to be enrolled /registered for courses and he cannot do that without paying tuition.
b. Even if he does not pay and feels he can work, he cannot really work with the study permit cos he is not enrolled, and as soon as he tries to use that or his SIN to work, it will be noted in the system.
c. That puts him on the streets. (which i am sure he will not like)
2. He can get to Canada without paying the tuition, but as soon as he gets here he has to pay. Some schools can do payment plan that enables him pay in installments. That way he does not pay the 18k at once.
So my best advise is that he should have some savings or some money from Naija to get him by for the first few months, (accommodation and fees) until he gets a job, and be paying tuition little by little.
I do not know much, but these are my 2 cents.
I wish him well.

Most likely by the end of February you should be getting a response from them.
Usually U of S starts to send out admission decision from mid February through March, depending on the program you are applying to.
Best of luck.

Austacus, how are you doing? Been trying to reach you.
Please check your email oooo.
|Travel / Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 16 by Mudicua: 7:28pm On Jan 27, 2020|
I am busy though, but will gladly help with info as much as i can
|Travel / Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 16 by Mudicua: 9:07am On Jan 24, 2020|
1. When you say accompany what exactly do you mean? If it is to go with him on the trip, then Yes you can accompany him, however also bear in mind that if you are denied (hopefully not) he will have to go alone and you will have to pay for unaccompanied while he is travelling.
But if you mean to move and be with him, then that might be tricky.
2. All the documents necessary alongside what you mentioned I would believe.
3. Yes, he is underage. So he would need to have adult supervision so to speak. (So yeah, you have to find one).
4. Yes if it is paper application, and no if it is online application. Duration varies from 4 weeks to 14 months, with less of the latter though (given the trend i have seen here)
I do not know much, but thought to give my 2 cents.
I hope this helps.
|Travel / Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 16 by Mudicua: 6:45am On Jan 23, 2020|

Will send an email to you.
Please awaiting your response.

A very big lie... big one is what the agent is telling you.
My friend finished her masters 7 or 6 years ago, and is currently in Canada doing another masters.
That is all I am going to say!!
|Travel / Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 16 by Mudicua: 6:38am On Jan 23, 2020|
I agree with you.
Some things that happen ehn can be shocking.
My friend who is pregnant had an emergency situation over the Christmas break and thankfully her husband was around to rush her to the hospital around past 1am, they were not attended to until like almost 3am if not past.
The bus system in my town fails a lot... the transportation sucks, but na Canada ba...
Today the TTC or rail system in Toronto had an issue that people were delayed for as much as 4 hours... and could not get to work on time.
Lols... las las each system has their issues.

Not in all cases do you get full funding.
Most likely in US schools than Canadian schools.
|Travel / Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 16 by Mudicua: 6:27am On Jan 23, 2020|
Thank you very much my brother.
I will share his timeline. His own was fairly easy cos it is a spouse work permit.
Submitted application November 2019, medicals was first week in December, and passport request 2 weeks ago.

I think you should apply for a PhD. It is not too late.
I am in the social sciences as well, and while scholarship may not be easy, you can get it if you strategically follow up on what the professors are doing or their field of research, and apply using that info or background knowledge.
I know someone who just got into a school here for his PhD... even up to his flight ticket was paid for by the school or rather the research office/supervisor he will be working with.
My two cents...
|Travel / Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 16 by Mudicua: 6:12am On Jan 23, 2020|
It depends on the process you did in applying. I did not submit my passport until it was requested for.
Usually when you do online applications, you are not required to.
I do not know about paper application.

Hope you all are doing well.
Been a while i came here, school work and dealing with winter wahala in Canada takes so much time off my hands.
Hope our Nairalanders in Newfoundland and Labrador, Halifax, are safe ooo. Please make una no use the weather play oooo. It aint funny being out there in this blistering cold. Frostbite is real!!!
Please I have a request to make, and it is quite urgent.
@JustMellow, @Frankrobbn1 @Naijaforeigner @Qudkom, @mcobex @Austacus @Bracha and others in this house, please your responses will be greatly appreciated.
My brother got a PPR, but has less than 6 months left on his passport. We though it is better for him to get a new passport, but we want to know if he can submit the new passport to CIC given his application was done using the info on the old passport.
If so what are your suggestions on how best to do this? Can he submit both? Do we have to a letter to CIC to explain the new passport?
Has anyone experienced this before, or been in this situation? If yes, what did you do?
Please everyone, your advise will be greatly appreciated.
