I don't know what you are really on about here. You keep jumping from one isssue to the other.

Anyway if you are going to either England, America or Canada for a 1 year Master's degree then of course it is prudent to have sufficient funds that would cover your tuition and maintenance for that period. Also note that in Canada the fees are quoted per semester and there are differential rates charged, as between home students and international students.

What I do know also is that the intense nature of a masters degree in electrical engineering in English universities does not really leave much time for work during term-time.

The money that you can make working during the  out-of-term periods obviously depends on the type of work you can find to do and the number of hours you are prepared to put in.

This is a tight one. Now, in the UK, students are allowed to work 20hrs a week during sch terms and ful time on holidays. Minimum wage here is £5.73, if u are in london then u get paid more than that cos of cost of living in london.

Outside london, its posible to get paid £6.00, 7.00, all depend on the company and type of job. so 20hrs wk X 5.73 will give u something like £114.6, the national Insurance and tax will be reducted from that amount, leaving u with maybe £100 a week, but u will get ur tax back(as a stduent) at the end of financial yr as long as u don't over blown ur 20hrs a wk restriction.

Holidays are always there for u to work ur backside off.

Hope that makes sense.

I personally think Canada is best.

1. Some of the students' visa can now work part-time while the school.

2. Years in school could be used later towards becoming a permanent residents.

3. Years of the part-time work cld be used as experience in the future.

4. The schools are a little cheaper.

Don't know about now,but aren't your fees supposed to be paid in part or fully,or you show you've enough to pay tuition for the duration of your studies, before you're issued a student visa? What are you going to do about that? 1.5mil's only about £6000. Canada's a great country, but you're only allowed employment within the campus if you're a full-time student. Maybe things have changed now.

I finished the a yr course with 3yrs visa left on my passport(cos i was given 4yrs) coming back to Nigeria was not an option, so i worked my backside off to save up for a degree course, came back after a yr and start my degree, while i keep working 20hrs, sometimes more than that, then full time during the holiday, now i'm a graduate.

Now listen, I went through hell, it was either u swim or sink situation, its risky cos students are not allowed to work more than 20hrs a wk durying term time, now its almost imposible to try it cos its tighter now, the jobs are not there, so don't risk it, come with enough money and see how it goes

Good luck

Wont advise you to travel as a student without your full school fees, and your whole rent at least

prior to the recession The best option is still UK in my opinion, i don't think students are allowed to work in the US and Canada though there might be some vacancies in school but its highly competitive. In the UK you can work up to 20hours anywhere if you can find the job and they agree to take you on part time basis plus you can work full time during the holidays

The topic and post do not sync, but i'll reply to the topic.

If you want to die at a very young age then head to the UK as a student. Even non students can barely survive.
