:P i am so happy to be able to join this forum. I am from kenya, I intend to study in Australia starting October 2010. I however have to go through a college in South West Australia- Curtin for a diploma before I join Curtin International University. Any idea where I can get help.

I am not able to afford the study costs and living costs. Any idea how I can be helped. I plan to do fundraising in Kenya, though it is not very effective.

hello StudentGuru
am an international student studying in one of the US colleges. I want to travel to canada because i need a stamp on my I-20 form. i changed my status from B1 to F1, and when i got my I-20 form there was no immigration stamp on it. i was unable to apply for identification card and a driver's licence because i did not have the immigration stamp on my I-20 form. So my questions is that is it advisable to go out of the country (canada to be precise), and what do i need to bring along with me for the trip. My passport and my F1 visa is still valid. Thank you. PLS I NEED YOUR ADVICE!

Hey Guys- I am currently working in Dubai for a US fortune 100 Defense Corporation and have been working in HR for the last 7 years. I really feel HR is not for me so want to take a switch in career and have decided to come to canada for my higher education.

I am particularly interested in any Financial Services program in canada. 2 years or 3 years does not matter..My plan is to finish school and work in canada for around 1 year and then return back to Dubai. Anyone who finished their Financial Services program in canada please reply..What are the opportunities and do you think its wort it or should i just do a masters in HR in Canada since i already have solid 7 years of work experience?
