Hello everyone, thanks to all gurus for the good work they are doing.

Please I have been trying to book appointment with IOM but I keep getting stuck as I can't finalise the registration.

A friend also tried from his end, yet the same thing.

Please, what can I do? can I book in person at the clinic?

Is anyone facing the same thing. The earliest date I saw is June 23rd.

@Just Mellow, thanks for the response. My challenge is I have been trying to get another admission but not been able to because most schools are not taking 2.2 for Mechanical Engineering in the university. I also tried plenty colleges but still no head way.

I need advise on which schools to check out for PGD in Mechanical Engineering/related courses and how best to tackle the issue while re-applying.

The reason for denial in the gcms note is:

Applicant seeks to study electro-mechanical engineering technology diploma program at Centennial College. Applicant has been employed as a mechanical engineer for 8 years. Applicant already has a degree in mechanical engineering. - Applicant's plan of studies does not appear reasonable given applicant's employment and education history - Information provided do not demonstrate a logical progression or a clear career path - I am not satisfied that the proposed studies are reasonable in light of applicant's qualifications, previous studies, employment history, level of establishment, future prospects and plans and considering the magnitude of investment - I am not satisfied that applicant's purpose of visit/motivation for entry into Canada is educational advancement

Thanks everyone.

@Frankrobbin, Just Mellow and all the gurus in the house. Please I need help.

I got my GCMS note yesterday and I was told no career progression. I plan re-applying but need someone to help so that am sure I am hitting the nail on the head.

Another challenge I have is I have not been able to secure another admission but even as am searching for another admission, I need guiduance to be sure I am seeking the right admission.

Please see below the screen shot of the gcms note

Good morning Guys, please courses with 'Ontario College Graduate Certificate' , is it a good one for student who graduated with 2:2. please help.

You won't see a university accepting 2.2 for Mechanical Engineering for Masters. 2.1 is the minimum requirement.

Someone made a Comment some few pages back about PG. Cert in Mechanical Engineering related courses, I think you should check it out , it's in the link below

Thanks so much boss for the prompt response, I sincerely appreciate.

Good afternoon everyone.

I got my refusal letter during the week and I have been trying to get another admission but I have not seen any University that takes 2.2 for masters degree.

Also, I will appreciate any hint on a University where I can study PG Cert in Mechanical Eng or Energy.

Thanks everyone.

Is it true only someone in Canada help to order my GCMS notes?

Can someone please highlight the steps to go about this.

Thanks everyone.
Travel / Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 18 by Sharonyeah: 12:14pm On Jan 21
So sorry about your Refusal Sharon,

Why you await response from the guru/gurus

Purpose of Visit means the visa officer is not convinced that you will leave Canada after your degree program, there are lots of reasons to this, one of them is wrong career/academic progression.

@ Lekiboboe: Thanks so much for the prompt response. I totally agree with you on getting GCMS notes which I will order for immediately.

I actually think it is more of Career Progression because the VO stated that based on level of qualification, establishment and so am not sure you will leave Canada and what I applied for initially was Ordinary Diploma even though I am graduate of Mechanical Eng.

It will end in praise.
Travel / Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 18 by Sharonyeah: 10:38am On Jan 21
@Frankrobbn1, my Visa has just been denied based on purpose of visit.

I am planning to reapply and I need your help. I will be so glad if you can assist.

The only reason given for denial is on the purpose of visit based on my level of establishment and co.

I am planning to seek admission in another school for graduate certificate.

The initial admission was in Centennial for ordinary Certificate in Mechanical Engineering.

Looking forward to your response.

@Just Mello

Hope you're making the right choice or have a clear reason (for the VO) for choosing an AD. Try flywire or get a trusted person in Canada to help out.



My brother, yes. I already made the initial payment deposit of 2650 CAD before realising that it may not be the best decision.

I however did my best to give strong points in my SOP. The only thing I did was to quickly asked for a change of course to a related course and explained why I needed that for my career progression which I was granted.

I am trusting God for the best.

Hello, please can someone help me out
I applied to Centennial college for Global business Management, May 2021. I got a mail back that I had to pay a deposit before I could get an acceptance letter.
After going through the tuition fees breakdown the school sent to me, I realized that there are cheaper courses I could take in the same school.
I wanted to ask if it’d be wise to send a mail to Centennial College that I would like to change my course.


Yes, you can go ahead and ask for a change of course but please give them good reason for requesting for a change. I did the same.

Also, yes. I paid initial deposit of 2650cad before my acceptance letter was given.

Good morning everyone, please I will like to know if it is necessary to inform the doctor that I have BP issue even though I am on drugs and when I use my drugs, the BP will be so regulated that the doctor may not know about it.

I am just thinking if I should disclose it or not.

Thank you all for your wonderful responses.

@Lekiboboe, I really appreciate the extensive explanation given, I am grateful.

I will use the suggestions given and trust God to help me.

Lastly, It just occurred to me that I have HND/HNC in UK as well before getting my BSC degree, does it make sense to keep quiet on the BSC and use my HND as my highest qualification while I put up a strong point why Advanced Diploma course?

The only concern in doing that is "what if they eventually find out since Canada and UK share a lot of information?" Moreso, I remember I have done my ECA while thinking of going through express entry.

I am just at my low end right now. I am confused.

My people, thank you all for the responses.

Hope it's not the Mechanical Engineering Technology – Design Advanced Diploma Program at Centennial College u are talking about ? Yes, it is.

Reading back the thread and searching google, I discovered Advanced Diploma is lower than BSC. Hmmm, I don't know what to do?

How can I explain that this is a career progression? Or should I just keep quiet on this part in my SOP?
Travel / Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 17 by Sharonyeah: 4:01pm On Oct 06, 2020
Thanks so much bro for your urgent response but I already have admission into centennial and part payment has been made as school fees deposit. The Advanced Diploma is under the school Post graduate Certificate.

Good afternoon everyone, please I need our candid advice.

I finished my BSC in Mechanical Engineering in a university in UK but I finished with 2.2 hence when I was searching for admission for Masters, I discovered on the school website that I can only go for Advanced Diploma before proceeding for Masters.

Now, the challenge is, how do I explain in my SOP that going for Advanced Diploma is a career progression without mentioning that I finished with 2:2.

My fear is, if I state that I finished with a 2.2, It may reduce my chances of getting Visa Application.

Please this is urgent as I plan submitting my application before the end of this week.

Hi Everyone,

There is possibility that students with valid study permits will be allowed to travel to Canada this September for fall semester.

Please see details below from cic news.

Thanks everyone for the responses.

1. A friend that lives in canada helped paid the money.

2. I believe one needs the offer letter to proceed with study permit application, so if admission is deferred how do we get the admission letter.


3. Also without payment of acceptance fee one can't get the offer letter and I think it makes sense to still proceed with study permit processing even if one plan to resume in winter.
Travel / Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 17 by Sharonyeah: 11:05pm On Jul 01, 2020
Good evening house, Please I have a few questions.

Hubby got an offer to Centenniel college Ontario for mechanical engineering this sept for fall. We paid the initial deposit of 2650 Cad to secure the addmission letter. To my amazement, we were asked to pay full payment for 1st semester before July. 6th as late payment may lead to withdrawal of admission. Letter was gotten on the 30th of June and I feel the notice is too short.

2. We sent a mail to canadian embassy in Lagos to find out the possiblity of travelling this sept and they said they can't answer the. question but for now till further notice, only people who have exemptions can travail to Canada.

3. The question is, should we make the full payment or wait? The clause of if payment is not made before July 6 is on. the offer letter and am thinking it may lead to outright refusal if VO see that payment was not made before the due date.

The money is not on ground, will have to hussle to get it.

4. Also, I know it's likely schools start with online classes by sept till December and because off the time difference does it make sense or one should just defer admission to Jan 2021.

5.We have not gotten all documents needed for the application, am thinking the time to apply for study permit for this fall is short.


I will appreciate quick responses.
