    Re: newly arriving students are in trouble !!!

    I am really gisgusted by the behaviour of London Thames College that they are charging student 195 on the very day new student arrive at their door step and even 495 for PG student. This is not justifiable as student were not aware of these charges in Nepal and nowere it states this kind of charges on their prospectus. New student had to pay these fee otherwise they were thretened to be removed or told they won't be able to sit any examiniation. Now these student got less money left on their pocket and some left with no money which meant to be for their accomodation and other expenses. This is a day light robbery

    Re: newly arriving students are in trouble !!!

    My only advice: Sorry to be harsh, if your not here to study, then do something else with your life.

    I know a relative who came here recently to study, and one of the first things I asked him was, "What do you want to do after your studies?" He seemed a little lost in my question.

    This seems to be a reoccuring response I get from Nepali students, and many I find get lured by the short term gains of earning money, end up wasting their money on unnecessary materistic things, and then expectedly dropping out of the classes which they had no real interest in completing in anyway. Interestingly this phenomenom doesn't just happen with students living a minimal life, but those that can afford to live a comfortable student life and find the time to work seem to miserably fail too. If you have no desire to study and succeed, whatever your hardships, then it's not going to happen.

    However, on the plus side, I know students who have come here to study, have a passion for what they do, and want to show that their willing to perserver to make something of themselves, and they appear from all walks of life - pauper to prince. It should be understood what drives such people - overall, a long term investment in their life. We should congratulate them, and use them for inspiration for us studying or trying to achieve something in life.

    Another thing I think that plagues our society is that of snobbery, there's some underlying need to exagerrate or give the illusion that we're living like royalty in foreign land, for example, I was in another well developed nation on holiday a few years ago visiting a relative (who is also a student), they would constantly moan about not being able to afford textbooks and a personal laptop for writing up coursework. The next day, we were browsing through a department store, and the relative in question seemed more than happy to purchase $100-$200 watches for their parents back home, perfumes for some cousin they were going to visit. Clearly, there is something illogical going on here. Why are we too weak to admit that we can't afford certain things at the present? If you can't afford it, but you have to save for a laptop or that textbook, why cause yourself further hardship than you already have? I saw an essay she wrote, and it was poor for someone you had spent life having private tuition, going to the best schools in Nepal and living in a developed nation for some time. I'm sure alot of you can relate to this to some degree.

    So guys and girls, please go to your classes, think why you are there, and think about your future, ignore pressures that stop you from acheiving your goals. Trust me, stick to it and the textbooks, laptops and your achieved qualifications will be your goldmine.

    Whatever the trade or profession; nurse, hairdresser, doctor, engineer, journalist, politician, mechanic, scientist, chef, charity fundraiser, army...only you can make it happen.

    Narayan, I am absolutely shocked and disgusted by any college that can do this to a student arriving from Nepal. I am a Brit, married to a Nepali and working in a consultancy, belonging to my wife's family in Kathmandu. I know of all the tricks of the trade and see so many Nepali young students falling headlong into the trap of being directed to the London junk colleges. I am disgusted by what happens here. In our consultancy we direct students to UK Government funded colleges like Langside College in Glasgow or University of West Scotland group where we can even offer free rooms or almost free rooms to the students. And when our students get to the UK, we want them to keep in touch with us so we can monitor their progress. But sadly the students want only one thing..... CHEAP.... and that's the biggest mistake. If they just paid a bit more, rooms can be free or sponsored, extensions within the UK become easy and the students' welfare becomes important in the Government colleges. We just keep trying to advise them correctly
