It is false that having a family in Canada is a negative thing for a Canada student visa. I know three Canada PRs and Citizens that have sponsored their siblings to study in Canada in the last 1-3 years. I also know two siblings that received student visas, sponsored by parent, while their sibling was a PR, now a citizen.
Advising people to not disclose their siblings is a horrible idea. From my experience, it gives no advantage for student visas and could backfire significantly in the future. I will advise you to read about Indian students facing deportation due to fake documents.
All the best.

You are allowed to work more than 2 jobs as a Nigerian citizen. So it should not be a problem that you worked at a school and a company at the same time during your NYSC.

BI/BA is a lucrative field but make sure you confirm the program qualified for PGWP. UofC continuing education mainly focus on part-time programs for professionals. You may also want to check 18 months PGD in colleges, mostly in Ontario. You may get it for that 22k. All the best.

With 2:2? I won't advise that except candidate has atleast 80% GPA in the last two years of study. UofA is top ranked and will likely receive llots of competitive applicants.

Aviod any airline transiting USA except you have a valid USA visa. Aviod any fare that have two transit locations in Europe too. All the best.

Msc computer science if you have above 80% GPA. You have to look for the school and admission by yourself.

Let your sponsor pay your one year tuition in full and transfer some living expenses to your account. Submit pictures together and any other documents to show your relationship.

What is your personal and family goals? If it includes immigrating to Canada, then you have to return to school. This time, leave your kids with their father to allow you to focus on school. You should then come home every holiday (summer and christmas) to refresh and enjoy with them. This way, you will not miss each other too much and you will still achieve your goal of immigrating to Canada in the short run.
If your goal doesn't include immigrating to Canada, you can do anything you like including withdrawing. Canada student visa is getting more and more difficult to get. Withdrawing will also put a ding on your profile, which will require a lot of explanation in the future. No one can also guarantee that you will gave a better economic and social ties to Nigeria at that time.
Na my one cent sha. The final choice is yours.

Since your school doesn't defer, ask for tuition refund if you paid any. Wait for your GCMS note. When it arrives, think of how long it will take you tackle it, then add that months/years to 6 months visa processings. You then reapply for admission for the available intake that you will give the sufficient time you need to repackage.

Anyone with internship? You should choose that first. If none, review their course requirements and select the one that the courses make sense the most.

Showyoung is right that the best time is September if the other programs end by August. You want to aviod stories that touch from IRCC by renewing your study visa before the it expires or you complete the other program. All the best.

As long as my deposit fee will be refunded, I will definitely withdraw from the college and focus on the masters because it is lower fees and a higher education. The fact that you received a masters admission with HND in Canada is a miracle in itself, except you have bachelor's degree too. All the best.

Is the statement fake or genuine. I suspect it is fake. You person probably thought the agent mean well when s/he said "don't worry about the statement. I will arrange it." If this is true, no Canada for your person for the next 5 years be that. Unfortunately, no court will overturn a justifiable ban.
For the passport, s/he can contact IRCC though webform and email for an update.
Let the person also know it will be hard for him to get visa in US, UK, Australia and New Zealand because they share visa information with Canada. If he applies to these countries and not disclose the ban, it will likely be automatically ban from those country too.

You need a strong letter of explanation supported with evidence of employment from you and your sponsor. Having money in the account is not sufficient for IRCC. You need to show where the money came from. The visa officer should be able to determine that the balance is not ridiculous compared to the income source. For the letter of explanation, check out other post from successful applicants for LOE structure they used. These structure can give you an idea of what to include in yours. Thanks and all the best.

The guy is obviously very intelligent, but his experience with Canada may not be that strong. I smiled at his reply and moved. Those who read the thread will definitely know facts from opinions. Na those wey no read well I pity. They can easily fall for one off answers and posts.

You are right that it is easier for SOWP holder to transition to PR in Canada. However, getting a SOWP for Canada is not easy and straightforward like UK. For Canada study visa, home tie is always a big factor and applying as a whole family is a risk to most Nigerian applicants. Also, many SOWP applicants wait for over a year to unite with their spouse in Canada and many still get declined. Thanks.

Her funding is too low. As others have suggested, it only covers her tuition. What of her 10k living expenses? What of money for her family in Nigeria?
She needs to show she can afford the program without her family suffering. It is hard to get visa without extra funds when you married with kids, even if family will stay in Nigeria.
Home tie is also more than socio. There is also the economic part depicted by good and well paying job. Does she have that currently? If yes, did she submit evidence of her employment?
|Travel / Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 21 by Osemigho: 10:33pm On May 29, 2022|
I may have missed something, but I summarized it as:
JR refused because applicant didn't demonstrate sufficient fund for the complete duration of the program. Applicant argued that s/he only required to show sufficient fund for one year, and did that with over 70,000 CAD shown in different bak account.
However, the court sided with visa officer that, although that is required, it is also important that applicant demonstrate existing fund will not be completely depleted and funds will be available for whole duration of the program either through money in the bank or evidence of employment sufficient to cover year 3-4.
Conclusion: Applicants should remember to submit their and sponsor source of income to back up their statement of account. These documents are as important as a statement of account.

Go and renew your passport. Make sure you are guaranteed not more than 1 week processing, even if you have to travel outside of your state for it. Dem go chop your money sha.

I see you have received many opinions on the way forward. I find it disturbing that Blessed451, with less than 1 month and 3 pages posting on nairaland, is advising you reapply without GCMS note. Please always check people's experience, validated by active post on nairaland, before following their advise. Experience counts over dem say dem say.
Be careful of older members too because some knowledge or experience are outdated. I will listen to people that have 2-5 years of recent and active posting or at least show they have been reading the thread for that long. All the best.

Getting a professional job after graduation, especially for masters and PGD graduates can be a little challenging due to lack of "Canadian experience" (meaning: not a good fit) or lack of a persevering spirit.
The IT, data science, and computer science industry was booming for the last two years. However, higher interest rates is crushing them and the economy into recession lately.
The best course to do is that which you have some experience or interest in. You may want to aviod anything oil and gas because it's current price and industry recovery may not be sustainable in the long-term.
When you get a student or work visa and enter, network with industry people, particularly Nigerians, working in your field to show you how they do it. The sooner you do it, the earlier you start to prepare yourself and your mind to persevere and be a good fit for your potential companies.

Lump sum- irregular and abnormally high deposit in the account. 500k naira into a dead account (empty with no transaction) is potentially a lump sum. Same amount into an account that regularly receive 1m naira salary is nothing.
You can add documents to your application. However, it may delay your application as the visa officer will spend more time to review your new information. Only send important and missing documents.
The quickest way to send documents is through email. If you apply from Nigeria, Search for cic kenya email address and send them an email. Remember to put your UCI and application number in the subject or body of the email.

The fatest way is to contact a PR or Citizen to apply for you. I thunk Anon123 does that. You will likely get it within 31 days.
The other way us to apply through third-party website. This usually get delayed due to double processing by the organization and IRCC.
|Travel / Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 21 by Osemigho: 1:04pm On May 21, 2022|
Check the admission/deferral condition. If you are allowed to defer, apply and don't tell them. If you are not and have paid deposit, you may notify them to get your deposit and reapply for admission to other start dates.
|Travel / Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 21 by Osemigho: 1:01pm On May 21, 2022|
Review required suggest the first person need a second eye to check your application again. There is a note section. Is there anything there from the first reviewer?
|Travel / Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 21 by Osemigho: 5:38am On May 21, 2022|
Same documents, but add
1. Pictures of you and him. It will be good if you have 3-4 over the years. Add one that includes your mum if available.
2. His Birth certificate and your mum birth certificate to show they share parents.
3. Receipt of part or full tuition payment by him.
4. Table of contents that list all the documents and their pages.
In your letter of explanation, add a paragraph or section that explains your relationship with him (add one more Pictures of you with him) and his pledge and commitment to your program. All the best.

You have been advised on the way to go. I just have a question. Are you sure your agent submitted your genuine bank statement? Agents of darkness in Nigeria are notorious for submitting wrong or fake documents even when they don't have permission to do that. You may want to question your agent and ask to see all the document submitted on your behalf.

Bro, most oyinbo no dey talk straight to aviod confrontation. Their "consider" is a way of telling you to do something as the best option. If you don't do it, they will read policy to you later o and will not accept any begging. I explained this implicit style of advise some weeks ago. This is why It is good to read the thread
You already pass two weeks to resuming in-class. They are telling you that end of the month is too late to join your class. There must be something in their policy that may cause you to loose your seat and deposit. You are strongly advised to defer to the next available date.
Make I tell you the 9ja way. Oga go and defer your admission. End of the month is too late to join your class in-person. Except you don't mind loosing your seat and deposit sha. Na you go decide that one.
