Thread: UK Tier 4 Visa Refusal on Para 245ZV (k)

hi gemini sorry to hear about your visa experience. Actually you need to show SOLID evidence of funding, as they are concerned that you may be coming to work instead of study. If you make a fresh application, they will still ask you "have you ever applied for a visa before" and it will come out in the open again. So evidence of funding is very important. If you still want to do an MBA in the UK, by all means go through the visa application again, but this time have all the documents ready, unfortunately it all comes down to money. The UK is trying to keep immigrants away because they think non-UK migrants want to work (which is partly true and they are prepared to work more for less pay), unfortunately the UK cannot solve their own EU migration issues.

I'll give you a real life example, my friend lost his job as a web-programmer, because his boss decided to hire African programmers at a lower cost. Of course the African programmers were good and highly-skilled no doubt about that, and hiring them saved money for the company but now my friend is out of work.

Before you do anything, whether it is the UK or New Zealand, make sure you have all the documents ready for money.

Best of luck

Dear nikkiW, chickpea and Chococake, thank you so much for your replies.
I certainly feel "renewed" at this, I will go ahead and change the mode of getting my data.
Just that from my transcriptions, there doesn't seem to be any useful findings, honestly.
I guess this is down to the skill of the interviewer -- I guess I need to sharpen my skills because I don't seem to be getting "intelligent" answers :-(


Quote From chickpea:
Hi Satchi

, I've seen published papers in which open-ended questions were sent to participants by email, and then follow-up questions asked.


chickpea, if you come across these papers again, could you kindly send me? I can pm u my email add.

Thanks again
love satchi

hi, I'd really appreciate any help/advice on this:

I'm helping out in a qualitative study and so far recruitment has been almost impossible. People are now saying they would rather answer questionnaires than have a face-to-face interview. But how can we change the protocol now, and questionnaire is not the same? How do I write up this work if we change the way we ask people???

I have also submitted an abstract for a conference in September. From being a usually positive person suddenly I am a bit worried that the study is not strong enough for the abstract to be accepted! Has anyone else had an abstract rejected? So if it is really rejected, could it also be that the conference may have had so many number of abstracts that they've had to exclude a few???

Thanks
love satchi

Quote From Aarthi:
Any suggestions on what to include for the question "describe your interest and activities not related to your degree" for applying for phd?


cooking, volunteering, gardening....?

oh yes on coursework, I would list everything, as it gives a complete picture of what you have done. Maybe other people have better advice for this?

good luck

hi hazyjane
I have just done a direct message but I would like an open chat, yes it is a public chat I am thinking about, for study purposes, well it is not a study but it is just talking about a social topic. The twitter feed just increases by the second, how do I find all the chat-tweets later?
thanks

hi everyone
I really need some advice here. I have just got a twitter account, and I'm learning how to send tweets (ok to say something sensible in so-many-characters-allowed). I've so far learned that if people follow us, we are (supposed to) follow them (if appropriate)?

does anyone know how to do a twitter chat?
and how do i find all the chat messages later?
Also, how often do you look at your twitter?
Do we only look at notifications?
TBH I can't look at my phone all day, or simply jump up whenever it goes BING!

grateful for any advance
thanks
love satchi
