Education / Re: Apply For 2024/2025 PTDF Overseas Scholarship Scheme by UtilityRational(m): 4:32pm On May 26
davidirwin:
Can our Senior folks Guide us on the admission seeking process since we are done with the interview.
Especially for those that applied to France and Germany where Their requirements are stringent.
How do we go about the IELTS, recommendation letters, do we need international passport for application and what happens when the university is asking for an application fee which is quite high for us over in Nigeria.
Can you just guide us on the next steps from here? @utility rational and others


Admission seeking is solely on you. PTDF will not reimburse you for any Admission application fee. Some schools has zero application fee though. Some schools waive English requirements. Passport is also compulsory if not for application, for travel.

If I were you, I will not do anything. I mean any thing until I see the final list of Awardee. If your nama is there, everything thing else will be easier. Like some France schools need proof of funding. So you can use PTDF award letter. You also needs DAADs for German schools. So as I said, if I were you,I will wait first.

Please Those asking for securing admission should calm down. Admission seeking is the last thing you should worry about. You should concentrate on passing the interview now. Once you get the scholarship, everything fall in place. The schools, I mean every schools in those countries will be rushing you because of the money. Some schools in UK will even allow you to register even after close of registration. PTDF money is mad and they always deliver. Even if you didn't get admission, you can just differ to January or August next year and secure your admission calmly. So calm down and concentrate on your interviews.

[quote author=mb92 post=129822713]please I need more explanation on this pdtf scholarship this is my first time I’m applying for and luckily I was sent an interview invitation, how ever please I need some clarities regarding this scholarship.

1.the universities that I chose am I the one to secure the admission from any of the 3 universities myself of it’s the scholarship board that will do that for me on my behalf.

2. I have an offer letter from a different school at the moment which is not among any of the listed countries by the PDTf, it’s a different country. can I applied to the board to about that ? because i don’t think any of those universities I choose will give me offer of admission within this short period before the interview date

Like I said earlier I’m just confused because it’s my first time and I need some clarifications because I just saw something here about securing admission yourself which I don’t have any offer from 3 uni’s I chose in Uk rather it’s different uni from another country I have an offer atm moment.
Thank you .



You are to secure admission yourself. However, not a big deal as per as you get the scholarship, any school in those countries will be rushing you.

No, only those countries advertise. You can change schools in FRance,UK, German, to some extent. Note I said schools.

Can I attend the interview with my "student copy" of my transcript.....I currently don't have admission from any of the universities I applied for because I just sent out my request for my abroad transcript from my university and the process is still on.
I need quick answers please

It doesn't matter, no body will ask you whether your transcript is students copy or other wise.
Just do your interview present your docs and go.

I just noticed that also. Hopefully if the certificate has English version they will not mind
Education / Re: Apply For 2023/2024 PTDF Overseas Postgraduate Scholarship Scheme by UtilityRational(m): 10:03am On Jun 10, 2023
I don't think certification of foreign degree by foreign ministry will be possible. The email just come in yesterday and the are closing the portal tomorrow. So how is that possible. Also from all indications the interview will start next week, so it will still be very difficult for those that are not in Abuja to certify there foreign degree. Hope that criteria is not seriously taken by ptdf

On a serious note though, I have been constraining myself before now from commenting but at this rate one needs to speak up.

I understand it’s a public forum nevertheless it should not be abused by posting repeated marketing and promotional messages which is what you are doing. Thus, it’s best you just open your own thread for this purpose and not destroy this one.

My take.

Investment / Re: Treasury Bills In Nigeria by UtilityRational(m): 10:40pm On Jan 02, 2022
emmanuelewumi:



A bond of N100 at a coupon of 15% has a yield of 15%.


If the bond should appreciate to N120 the coupon is still N15, but the yield is now 12.5%.

If the price of the bond should fall to N90, the coupon on the bond is still N15 but the yield is 16.7%

You will get N15 as your coupon throughout the tenure of the bond, but your yield will vary based on the price of the bond

like the way you explain it. perfectly clear now sir . thanks

Emmanuel can you throw more light on differences between coupons rate and yield to maturity rate. I was thinking coupons is the rate that you would be paid biannual for the maturity period. If so then what is the yield to maturity rate?

You are the one hating. If I were being tribalistic I would have criticized the CG since he is a northerner.Simple! You really need to calm down. All will be well and besides I am employed so don't just assume bro.I have said the truth. If Kemi Adeosun messed up I would called her "Iya afonja"
She really messed up with the NYSC saga and humbly resigned but remember the welfare packages you are about to benefit from customs was all due to her team work and good relationship with the CG and also approval in 2019.So you shut da Bleep off! cheesy

Lol �. You say what "honourably resign"

Mr man ! I have said my mind if na because I called her "aboki" dey pain you ! Sorry o! But be clear of one thing, this is way bigger than tribalism,ipob ,afonja or whatever. These officers should have been promoted since 2019 and some these officers are abokis ( No offense). So if you think I am being tribalistic because I called her aboki, you really need a shock absorber.Since it is what is in your mind. You are the bigger tribal bigot.Peace undecided


Just shut up with your silly excuses. You just foolish bigot that don't know how to hide his hatred. How many ministries and agencies are still waiting for their promotion to be approved?? Is it only Custom. In the ministry where i currently work, those promoted since 2019 are yet to be connected by the IPPIS and the ministry is headed by one of your people. Did i come and attached any tribal colour to it while complaining
The issue of promotion problem is in most of the agencies and ministries and it's because of the cash shortage as promotion come with increase payment. And the same time our budget deficits is increasing yearly. But because of your hatred for certain people and tribe you want to single out custom case and associate a tribal colour to it. I know your type, just have some control over your utterance and what You type because it seems the hatred is overpowering your good side to the extent that you can't hide it anymore.

This is what happens when you put some aboki women in power. For her mind she is trying to be transparent but we all know that this is just a power tussle.Kemi Adeosun will never do this.The real culprits here is the customs committee.

Guess how long it will take to get my ROI with my cars still there tongue

Or how long it will take to raise 3million to buy other better agency with equal good pay from the business. While my investment still returning profit.

That your NCDMB must be paying in millions monthly. 10 million! No be juju be that? Them tie my intestines to govt job?



seriously the thing is funny. NCMBD that pay less than FIR and still people are paying 2-3 mil for same FIR. but you know people na, anything with oil and gas on it them go rush grin . not knowing that even does NNPC 2019 GT never collect even 1mill as upfront till today. and am sure NCDMB UPFRONT no fit reach that of NNPC, AND from what i had from 2019 GT employee there, NNPC upfront no reach 2mil for GT.

by the way, it all depend on willingness and desperation of job seeker. if its ok for you, go for it.
