  1. Hi. To introduce myself; I am 19, have been accepted into a university in British Columbia, paid for the first year's tuition, and applied for my study permit [It's been 17 days since sending my full application]. I've been distraught by the thought of my application being denied because they don't have enough proof I will return home after my studies are completed. I have read many posts that say I need to convince the Canada Immigration Officer (in my application), that I will return home and not stay on after. My biggest question to this is simply "Where?". I have sent in all the documents that they required of me at the time, in the application; But I was not once asked about my intent to return, about what personal assets I have on my own name in South Africa [A car pretty much], my previous track record of returning after travels [They did however require a PDF with all the stamped pages of my passport], a cover-letter or letter-of-purpose. None of it. [I have traveled in and around Vancouver for 12 days last month on a visitor visa, and returned home if that helps my case]. My second biggest question is simply "When?" am I supposed to give all of the above mentioned to them then? I've put in a lot of effort into doing everything right and by the book. If my application gets declined I honestly do not know what I would do. So much rests upon that 1 decision, which i fear is out of my hands now. Thank you so so much for reading this all 😝

    Tuks transcripts via MIE timeline

    I submitted a request for my University of Pretoria academic transcripts (to be sent to WES) to Management Integrity Solutions (MIE) on 10 December 2018. It took 6 emails, a few faxes and a couple of rants before they confirmed receipt of my request and the funds. On average, how long after MIE confirms payment do the transcripts arrive at WES? I am trying to enrol in a Masters Degree through distance learning in New Orleans from Canada, and I never thought I'd be dealing with MIE or WES 22 years after immigrating....

    Medical School

    Hi everyone, As a Grade 11 high school student in South Africa who is planning to move to Canada in the next 8 months; I was wondering if someone could give me some advice and information about pre-med and medical school in Canada specifically. I've heard after high school in Canada it's not possible to go directly into medical school and start training, like South Africa? If so, are there certain requirements for the undergrad that you do in college? Does it have to be something in the line of science and biology? Also, I'd like to know what I could do from this point forward to improve my chances into getting into medical school eventually, excluding good grades, I've already started on working on my community hours - that I know would've helped me if I wanted to apply to a university in South Africa. Maybe being an honor student could also benefit me? Any other advice would also be greatly appreciated.
  4. Hi All. My wife is looking to study in a totally new field in while in Canada, but the universities look ridiculously expensive... I have two questions: 1. Is there a distance learning university (like UNISA) in Canada that has lower study rates? 2. Would it be cost effective to do a Bachelors degree through UNISA, have it assessed by WES and then only do an 'honours' level degree at a Canadian university? Thus paying UNISA rates for years 1,2 and 3 and only Canadian rates for year 4.
